At Cliq we’re always looking ahead – to the next solution, the next industry breakthrough, and the next great idea to make payment processing simpler and more efficient for our clients.
That outlook has been well received by customers in a wide range of industries, and now it has been recognized in the media as well. The magazine Retail CIO Outlook published its annual listing of companies at the forefront of providing retail payment solutions, and Cliq was recognized as one of the nation’s top providers.
That award was accompanied by a cover story in the magazine featuring an extensive interview with our CEO, Andy Phillips.
As the article explains, 2020 has been a pivotal year in our industry. The evolution away from cash and checks and toward electronic transactions was already well underway, and the pandemic has hastened the trend toward remote contactless payments.
“This is where the prowess of companies like Cliq, a provider of innovative merchant processing services, ACH processing and prepaid card solutions, comes to play,” the article states. “With a mission to help reduce costs, increase sales, and provide the best possible customer support, Cliq empowers businesses with robust payment processing tools and technology.”
The article covers Andy’s four decades in the payment processing industry, and how he’s applied the lessons he’s learned toward solutions that address each client’s specific needs.
That includes an increased demand for information dissemination solutions. Cliq has the capability to deliver the data in just about any method or format that merchants are looking for.
“We live in the information age, and only a few companies can disseminate data like we do,” Phillips says in the article. “We are able to do that because of the information that we receive from our processors in real time and our vast internal capacity to develop specialized solutions geared toward the unique needs of merchants.”
