PCI Compliance Certification
A full-service club management software (ERP) solution for the health and wellness industry
Silver Spring, MD (December, 09, 2009) – Motionsoft, Inc. announced today that it has been granted level 1 Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) certification, making it one of only a handful of software vendors in the health and wellness space that has been granted PCI compliance.
The PCI Standard is the result of a collaborative effort formed by the five major credit card companies (Visa International, MasterCard Worldwide, American Express, Discover Financial Services and JCB) to develop an efficient approach to safeguarding sensitive data and for the prevention of credit card fraud, hacking and various other security concerns. Any merchant, organization or software that processes, stores or disseminates credit card data must be PCI DSS compliant or they risk hefty fines and/or losing the ability to process credit cards altogether thus putting their entire business in jeopardy.
Motionsoft’s level 1 compliant processes and products allow clubs, and fitness centers with a safe and reliable solution that helps to satisfy the trust factor that members expect. President and CEO Al Noshirvani thanked customers for their support during the campaign to achieve PCI accreditation, and to all the employees who have worked so hard to make Motionsoft compliant.
“This success follows significant efforts by the Motionsoft team to make changes in our systems and processes to meet the PCI Data Security Standards (DSS) requirements,” emphasized Mr. Noshirvani. “We understand that clubs and hospitals put their businesses at great risk if due diligence is not practiced and steps are not taken to protect cardholder and member data. In our ongoing focus on our club success we want to assure our clients that, not only are we compliant with the PCI DSS standard, but we take a very active approach to operational risk management.”
