Since it was first launched in 2003, PowerPay has become one of the nation’s premier providers of integrated eCommerce, industry and point-of-sale payment processing solutions. In that time, we have been recognized for several major achievements in the industry.
10 Days of Giving
In recognition of its 10-year anniversary in October 2013, PowerPay held the "10 Days of Giving" to celebrate. It was an opportunity for PowerPay employees to make a small, sustainable impact in the communities where they live and work – through simple kindness.
During the first 10 days of the month, employees volunteered their time to a variety of local nonprofit organizations. Beneficiaries included Goodwill, the American Red Cross, the Portland Public Library, Preble Street, the Good Shepherd Food Bank, Portland Trails and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Portland.
Level 1 Service Provider PCI Compliance
PowerPay is recognized as Level 1 Service Provider Compliant with the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS), as advised under the program rules of both Visa and MasterCard for validated Service Providers. Level 1 Service Providers must adhere to the strictest data security standards and must undergo and document an annual on-site PCI Data Security Assessment and quarterly Network Scan.
PowerPay is officially registered with the MasterCard and Visa associations as an Independent Sales Organization (ISO). While registration is required for every company and individual who provides Visa and MasterCard merchant accounts, there are some who may not comply. We believe that being a Registered ISO reflects our full professional commitment to the credit card industry, and helps us stay current with best practices and the latest trends in card processing.
Sustainable Best Practices
PowerPay is committed to following sustainable and environmentally sound best practices whenever possible. The company's Green Team, comprised of employees, researches products, services and methods that, in addition to the company's Gold LEED Certified work environment, will further reduce PowerPay's carbon footprint. The team has implemented green initiatives including compostable utensils, and are working towards the development of a “green training” module for new employees and company-wide digital signature and electronic fax technology. The company offers full recycling capabilities in their office, accommodating plastic, paper and cardboard. PowerPay has also purchased Green-e® Energy certified renewable energy credits, showing our commitment to helping reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, promoting cleaner air and fighting global climate change.
In addition, PowerPay is an affiliate member of the Maine Businesses for Sustainability (MBS), a network of Maine businesses expanding their bottom line through sustainable business practices and triple bottom line values. MBS provides Maine businesses an opportunity to learn about sustainability, network with other businesses, and find innovative ways to grow.
PowerPay understands the value of giving back to its community, and has established a volunteer Giving Committee to support our many donation and partnership initiatives. The company coordinates employee-giving programs where donations, matched by PowerPay, go to social service agencies within the community.
PowerPay also created the GIVE Program, where businesses can make a recurring monthly donation to a non-profit at no additional cost. Click here to learn how your business can begin donating through the GIVE Program.
