Many of my colleagues are now maintaining 5-8 different APIs to different payment platforms in order to accommodate their customer needs. What BridgerPay is doing is not only simplifying their integration but also helps them get more sales through using their Bridger AI Retry engine as well as provide them with consolidated reporting dashboards and ultimately improve the customer experience” says Harpaz.
