CAI Software Partners with CardConnect for Simple and Secure Online Payment

September 9, 2020 – Smithfield, RI – CAI Software, LLC (CAI), a leading provider of production-optimized ERP software and systems to the food service industry, today announced that it has integrated CardConnect’s best-in-class payment solution with CAI Software’s Food Connex cloud-based business management software for food processors and distributors.

CardConnect, a First Data company, provides businesses of all sizes with simple, secure and reliable payment processing.

“Leading food distributors and processors have stepped up their eCommerce game and are offering their customers 24/7 access to their inventory in order to place orders remotely from anywhere at any time,” said Brian Rigney, CEO for CAI Software. “If today you don’t offer the ability to efficiently make payments online, then you’ve fallen behind. Rest assured, many of your competitors are either thinking about or already offering the convenience of online payments to your customers — or they are thinking about how quickly they can.”

With CardConnect, Food Connex clients can easily accept and manage online payments. Credit cards can be securely accepted via swipe or keyed in any device, including a smartphone or tablet.

“CAI Software’s Food Connex solution is a perfect fit,” said Robert O’Connell, vice president for CardConnect. “Food Connex customers will find accepting online credit card payments to be simple, safe and less expensive.  All payment channels are covered, so customers can make a payment in-person, over the phone or online.  PCI-validated security features include point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization which are employed to encrypt sensitive cardholder data providing the ultimate data breach protection.”
