6 Payment Security Tips for ISVs

Posted on Aug 28, 2018
Open source contamination is the bane of many independent software vendors (ISVs). If even a tiny snippet of open source code makes it into your build, the entire application might legally be reclassified as “open source.”  To avoid this, developers must invest a lot of time creating bespoke code entirely from scratch. As an ISV, there’s another type of “contamination” of which you need to be aware — one that has to do with payment security. Or more specifically, PCI compliance.

4 Tips for Making Payment Integration Easier for ISVs

Posted on Aug 06, 2018
As an independent software vendor (ISV), you already know that end users expect turn-key solutions that work out of the box. The more tightly you can integrate payments with the solutions you provide, the fewer headaches your clients will face. That’s because there won’t be as many interoperability issues or moving parts for them to handle.  Meeting your end users’ expectations will require extra effort and development time. That’s no small feat — especially if you have limited resources.

Helping Hotels Compete in an Airbnb World

Posted on Feb 05, 2018
In 2017, Airbnb recorded an estimated 100 million “guest arrivals.” Not too shabby for a company that’s only 10 years old. Airbnb’s success is bad news for the larger hospitality industry. The aforementioned number represents 100 million potential travelers who could’ve — but didn’t — stay with conventional hotels and motels.  Admittedly, not everyone who stays at an Airbnb home is in the market for traditional lodging. Like Couchsurfing.com, the platform largely caters to budget travelers who go abroad only because affordable accommodations exist in their destination cities.
