Electronic Merchant Systems
In the world of payment processing, security is paramount. I’m sure you’ve seen the news lately, it seems you can’t go more than a few weeks without hearing about another big data breach where customer’s credit card info has been compromised. To combat this, the Payment Card Industry, or PCI for short, has set into place a set of regulations and standards designed to maximize security and protect both customers and merchants alike. Failure to become compliant doesn’t just put your customers at risk, it endangers your business. The fees associated with a breach are staggering and often times leave merchants with no other choice than to shut their doors permanently.

Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce and COSE offer dual membership opportunity. Through a special joint membership agreement, businesses in Cuyahoga Falls can now join both organizations and save up to 50 percent on what it would have cost to join each separately. Area businesses can now not only tap into valuable resources and exposure opportunities in their local communities, but also access the regional/national reach, buying power and government advocacy efforts of COSE and its more than 14,000 members. “Aligning with COSE is a win-win for everybody,” says Cuyahoga Falls Chamber chief executive officer, Laura Petrella. “Chamber membership offers local community involvement and networking opportunities. COSE broadens that scope. Members who take advantage of our cost-saving programs will also enjoy a return on their membership investment dollars.” “Local chambers and COSE have always had one common goal—helping businesses succeed,” said Steve Millard, president and executive director at COSE. “Together we’ll be able to provide a full package to help area businesses thrive.” “The Cuyahoga Falls Chamber helps us stay connected and grow our business locally while COSE has helped us make an impact and build connections throughout Northeast Ohio and beyond,” says Nevin Bansal, president and CEO of Outreach Promotional Solutions and a member of both organizations. “The support and savings programs have helped us better achieve our top-line and bottom-line goals. In our opinion, almost any business can benefit from being a member of both organizations.” This partnership will be the second (Hudson Chamber of Commerce) in the Summit County area and will open up many new opportunities for small business owners in the Cuyahoga Falls community.
