"Retriever has an enviable record of providing a full range of services, support and proprietary software applications that enable merchants to offer reliable non-cash payment options to their customers."

A leading independent sales organization, or ISO, in the merchant bank card processing industry, Retriever processes transactions for nearly 100,000 merchant sites serviced by over 600 affiliated sales groups and 400 agent banks. ISOs are independent agents that work with financial institutions to place point of sale electronic payment solutions with retailers.
