MIAMI (April 8, 2010) — Today, Premier Group (Premier), a leading international provider of enterprise software solutions, announced that its SmarterCommerce 3.0 Credit Card Processing, E-Commerce and Retail Point-of-Sale (POS) Software Release for JD Edwards achieved Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) validation and is now recognized by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) as the first and only “PCI Accepted” solution for Oracle JD Edwards customers. To learn more about the PCI organization and Premier's successful validation of SmarterCommerce 3.0 for JD Edwards, please visit the PCI website at:

SmarterCommerce is the leading credit card, E-Commerce and Retail POS solution for JD Edwards and has been implemented by customers across a wide-range of industries including Life Sciences, Construction, Manufacturing, Wholesale Distribution, Retail Operations and Services.

The goal of PA-DSS validation is to help software vendors develop secure payment applications that do not store prohibited data, such as full magnetic stripe, CVV2 or PIN data and ensure that their payment applications support merchant’s compliance with the Payment Card Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).  PA-DSS is a widely accepted set of policies and standards intended to optimize the security of credit, debit, and purchase card transactions and protect cardholders against the misuse of their sensitive personal information.

“This achievement reflects Premier’s commitment to PCI security standards and is a testament to the quality of our SmarterCommerce software solutions which continue to receive growing acceptance in the JD Edwards marketplace.  We are very proud to now be the the first and only “PCI Accepted” solution for Oracle JD Edwards customers that are seeking secure, real-time, “end-to-end” automation of credit card processing with their ERP system” indicated Fermin Rodriguez, Managing Director of Premier.

SmarterCommerce Credit Card Processing Solution greatly enhances an organization’s productivity in handling credit card payments.  Through Premier’s partnership with PayPal, the worldwide leader in payment processing, SmarterCommerce delivers comprehensive integration between the Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software (formerly JD Edwards OneWorld) and PayPal PayFlow Payment Gateway to address all aspects of credit card processing.
