DAKCS becomes first collection software solution to license patented embedded browser technology for payments
Ogden, Utah, July 16, 2018 — DAKCS Software Systems, Inc. has obtained licensing from payment software hub PDCflow as the only collection software platform officially licensed to use the patented embedded browser technology (US patent no. 9,799,029) known as Secure Entry Overlay.
The overlay technology is fully integrated in the DAKCS’ payment process through the use of an inline frame (iframe). The iframe embeds PDCflow’s secure server on top of the Beyond software platform, accepting and tokenizing a credit card number. This level of integration provides the users with the feeling of remaining within one interface rather than being redirected to another company’s payment form.
“We are constantly working to improve efficiency, and reduce risk for our customers,” says Lex Patterson, President of DAKCS Software Systems, Inc. “We’re excited to be the first collection software platform to be able to offer this level of integration and protection.”
PDCflow’s patented technology works by allowing DAKCS to place a secure, PCI certified website—designed as a credit card entry field—in the Beyond ARM system. When the customer processes a credit card payment, the card number enters PDCflow’s website and is then tokenized. The token is returned and safely stored in Beyond, to be used for future payments. This allows PDCflow to provide processing services while removing all PCI responsibilities from the DAKCS Software platform and greatly reduce the scope of PCI compliance for their customers.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with companies like DAKCS Software to benefit their merchants with our patented Secure Entry Overlay technology,” says Matthew Snedden, Chief Operations Officer of PDCflow. “Although DAKCS Software Systems, Inc. is the first company which can actively use this patented technology, we hope to expand our licensing through core software providers in every industry vertical.”
