The company used Pine Labs' Desktop Integration APIs to integrate with its existing billing system and provide a quick and robust payment collection service to its customers. For card payments, the solution everages auto-settlement, issuer-wise routing, and multi-acquiring features. Post-deployment, the company has transformed its billing into a quick and efficient process, and has considerably improved the check-out speed and experience for customers.

Solid error reporting helped us complete the integration easily and go live quickly. Last but not the least, Pine Labs' expertise and knowledge helped us smoothen out the creases with ease."
