For merchants running a CRM system, Enterprise Payment Exchange provides a module for enabling card-based transactions to be tokenised and authorised in the CRM environment through the Core module running on the merchant’s ECC back-end. Settlement is designed to be only run from the ECC system. The standard CRM-ECC RFC communication architecture is used to broker all messages between the systems.
All transaction requests brokered through the ECC back-end will use the standard configuration within this system to derive the correct communication credentials and pass messages out through the web service portal to the designated clearinghouse.
This module is a small enhancement set required for merchants that wish to implement both the E-Commerce and CRM modules that enables the e-commerce functionality such as customer card token retrieval from a CRM back-end.
