Having fewer, consolidated systems is preferable to managing disjointed systems that require duplicate data entry. This is exactly the reason software vendors look to integrate with other providers to deliver more features, while end users seek comprehensive solutions that meet all their needs.
Veterinary practices using VetBadger already have access to numerous features that streamline their day-to-day. These include its seamless QuickBooks integration, role-specific workflows with task management and heightened visibility, detailed exam reports, complete SMS and email management, and more.
In an effort to provide more integrated payment options to its customers, VetBadger is now integrated with PayJunction. VetBadger customers can now use the Smart Terminal to expand their payment acceptance and reduce their PCI scope.
VetBadger’s Smart Terminal Integration
The Smart Terminal is PayJunction’s proprietary cloud-based credit card reader. The Smart Terminal truly is smart: It’s EMV Level 3-certified and processes chip card transactions in just 3.61 seconds. This is four times faster than the average EMV terminal, resulting in faster checkout for veterinary practices and easier front office management.
The Smart Terminal accepts all forms of payment: EMV chip cards, traditional magstripe cards and NFC-enabled smartwatches, smartphones and fitness trackers. The terminal features a screen that captures digital signatures, which are stored in VetBadger’s software. This makes your transactions searchable in the cloud, removing the need to print a paper receipt to obtain a signature or to store for your records.
All transaction information is logged in QuickBooks to power business insights.
The terminal faces the customer, which means it’s ready for upcoming advancements in credit card security such as the introduction of chip-and-PIN cards. If a client incorrectly swipes a chip card, the terminal will tell him to insert it instead. This helps your practice defend itself from bank-initiated chargebacks that are the result of incorrect chip card processing.
The Benefits of Cloud Control
With VetBadger, you’re already meeting your patient management needs in a cloud-based environment. The Smart Terminal operates in the same manner, resulting in reduced server and data center needs for your practice as well as reduced PCI scope.
Any organization that processes, stores or transmits cardholder information is subject to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. This entails annual audits by the card brands to ensure compliance as well as adherence to strict security protocols. With a cloud-based terminal that does not natively connect to your computer or network, your company never interacts with cardholder data (nor does VetBadger). This reduces liability for both your practice management system and practice. PayJunction is PCI Level 1, the highest-available certification, and has held that distinction for over 13 years.
PayJunction’s Rates and Ethical Processing
PayJunction is an ethical payment provider and works to educate businesses about dishonest billing tactics that are commonly used in the industry. All prospective PayJunction customers go through underwriting to assess the account as well as identify and remove any unethical billing tactics from their current merchant statements.
The result is that PayJunction takes on new customers at a cost savings compared to what they were previously paying. Additionally, qualifying veterinary practices can obtain one free Smart Terminal.
With VetBadger and PayJunction, veterinary practices can rest assured that their workflows are streamlined, their clients’ information is safe and that they’re receiving the best possible processing rates.
