BrightStar Information Technology Group said it is joining forces with the payments software company Trintech to offer secure electronic commerce capabilities with SAP enterprise resource planning systems.
Trintech, which was formed in 1987 in Ireland and has an initial public stock offering pending in the United States, offered the first card payment system to be certified for the widely used SAP R/3 corporate administrative software. Trintech will be referring SAP-related projects to BrightStar and in return gets an "implementation partner" to help serve the SAP community.
"Many of our SAP implementations now involve an e-commerce element of one type or another," said Mike Ober, chief executive officer of BrightStar. "Trintech's PayWare application provides the secure, real-time processing capabilities that our customers demand from their e-commerce solutions."
Trintech CEO John McGuire said "BrightStar's experience developing and deploying Web-enabled SAP solutions is exactly what our customers need in an implementation partner."
