Connectria and Curbstone Partnership Secures IBM i Payment Processing and PCI Compliance

ST. LOUIS – May 16, 2022

Connectria is excited to announce its latest referral partnership with Curbstone. The primary function of this partnership is centered around Curbstone’s payment integrations which process credit and debit card payments within IBM i applications. Curbstone technology offloads the handling of the card data from hosted ERP applications, eliminating the burden and scope of handling card data.

“With a shared background on the IBM i, Connectria has been a natural business partner for Curbstone. Their hosting solutions allow our shared customer base to maintain the legacy benefits of the IBM i, with the added scale and flexibility of cloud computing. We’re pleased to endorse Connectria as our preferred managed service provider,” said Russell Gilmer, Sales Manager, Curbstone.

“Curbstone’s payment integrations within IBM i applications complements Connectria’s industry-leading IBM i skills and support beautifully. Their full seamless integration to ERP Order Entry eliminates double keying and potential fragmented payment handling, settlement, and posting. We also both ensure our respective customers’ security and compliance needs are met and maintained, keeping sensitive data safe – especially when concerning PCI,” said Jeff Swartz, former Connectria Director of Channel Sales.
