Optimized Merchant Services

The Montauk Group has partnered with Optimized Payments Consulting to provide comprehensive analysis of merchant services and associated pricing.

The adoption and the cost of card payments are constantly changing and increasing. In order to manage rising card processing fees and stay abreast of changes, it is critical for companies to understand and leverage industry best practices. Effective strategies can include customer steering towards lower cost tender types, interchange management, implementation of alternative payments, re-negotiation of merchant acquiring contracts, negotiating with card networks, and using analytics. Such strategies have allowed treasurers to save millions in card processing fees while improving cash management.

Optimized Payments Consulting is an Atlanta-based consulting firm that leverages proprietary software and its associates’ payments industry experience and insights to help clients reduce their credit card processing costs while improving their bottom line. The firm uses proprietary methodology and analytics to provide clients specific recommendations on ways to improve credit card processing costs.

Both Optimized Payments and The Montauk Group assist clients by implementing the recommendations they provide and make lasting and substantial improvements to the performance of merchant and treasury services.
