What differentiates Sound Payments from competitors in your space?

Our Sound POS product offers a top-notch point-of-sale solution without the headaches merchants experience from other providers. We are processor agnostic and we have a white glove approach when it comes to service and support. 

What are your primary products and services?

We offer software solutions that are customized and white labeled by our partners. Our most visible products are Sound POS and Quantum (our semi-integrated customer-facing PIN pad payment acceptance solution). Additionally, we license software to partners that provides unique, custom payment acceptance solutions. 

How does working with Sound Payments benefit ISOs, MLSs and other payments enterprises?

Sound Payment’s primary customers are ISOs and ISVs. We are not a processor. We do not obtain revenue from transaction fees. We are a software licensing company. This is a great benefit to ISOs because we don’t compete with them. We provide a benefit to ISVs by complementing their existing solutions with our own POS or providing our Quantum product for their POS. 

What's next for Sound Payments?

This year we are laser focused on enhancing our POS and growing that part of the business. Our Sound POS and Quantum (cloud-based, semi-integrated PIN pad payment acceptance platform) products have proven their potential as the company’s core product lines. They see growth every year and this year we will focus more on efforts to foster that growth to bring them to their full potential. 

How can we work with Sound Payments?

We are always looking for partners whether that be ISVs who would be interested in our third-party API or ISOs looking to provide a better POS for their merchants and make more revenue at the same time. We love hearing from people in the industry. Give us a call or email us to set up a time to chat so we can see how we can work with each other.
