GO Software, NOVA Offer Internet Payment Solution

Looking to address the recent e-commerce growth, transaction software company GO Software Inc. and Internet transaction processing firm NOVA Information Systems Inc. Monday announced a new Internet payment solution.

The service integrates NOVA's TransPort Technology with GO Software's Charge suite of merchant payment processing software products. Windows PC users with an Internet connection can process credit card payments in real time by sending the information directly to NOVA for processing.

The service eliminates the need for merchants to have a separate modem and phone line to dial the credit card processor. Typical processing times are reduced from 15-20 seconds to 3-5 seconds by eliminating the dial time, said Bill Pittman, GO Software's chief technology officer.

"It's like having dedicated, leased line performance at Internet connection costs," he said.

The software is designed for easy integration and scalability for merchants of any size. Neither pricing nor availability were disclosed.
