BridgePay Network Solutions, LLC is a transaction gateway company specializing in providing turnkey payment application solutions to merchants and partners across numerous industries. The company’s comprehensive suite of payment products aim to reduce the scope of PCI with simplified connectivity to more than 30 domestic and international processors, five ACH providers and 16 gift and loyalty companies.
“We help independent sales organizations bring transactions to banks, said Bill Marshall, Chief Technology Officer at BridgePay Network Solutions. “Software vendors come to us to pass a functional certification for access to all credit cards. Providing them ease of use and the ability to move forward with credit card transfers is our goal.”
In late 2012, BridgePay was looking to replace its existing payment application with a more full-featured, visually appealing portal for customers and partners. “We wanted to create a portal website for our credit card processing gateway that was aesthetically pleasing yet functional, enabling our customers to perform any and all tasks required for processing credit card transactions in a single location,” said Marshall.
While researching numerous frameworks, the development team stumbled on Kendo UI® by Progress. “What stood out primarily was the look and feel Kendo UI created,” said Jenna Ramsey, Chief Architect at BridgePay Network Solutions. “When you’re dealing with the presentation logic, the more it can pop and distinguish you from competitors, the better. Kendo UI has drop-in widgets we can configure on-the-fly, based on what the user wants to see. It was the ideal solution for creating the portal we had in mind, within a short timeframe.”
While learning about Kendo UI, the team discovered Telerik® DevCraft™ by Progress, as well. “We liked many of the DevCraft tools, and decided to adopt them to assist with our development efforts,” she said.
