Troy, Mich., July 28, 2010 - North American Bancard, LLC, one of the industry’s leading payment solutions providers, announced today its acquisition of CDI Technology from the corporate development and investment firm Quantum Ventures of Michigan, LLC.
CDI Technology (CDI) is the leading regional supplier of point-of-sale systems to the restaurant and hospitality industry in Southeast Michigan and Western Ohio for more than 20 years. The company is among the nation’s largest MICROS Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCRS) dealers. MICROS Systems, INC. is the world’s leading provider of enterprise applications for the hospitality and retail industries.
The acquisition reflects North American Bancard’s (NAB) objective to continue to differentiate its distribution channels as a dominant player within a continuously converging payment and technology space. NAB is allocating substantial sales and capital resources to fully automate CDI's core systems and to enable the company's launch of its national POS sales and support platform. In addition, NAB is offering CDI merchants incentives and financing for installation and upgrades, as well as discounts on certain services in order to integrate processing into a consolidated platform.
“We’re confident that NAB’s resources will not only propel CDI’s market growth, but enhance CDI’s client relationships,” said Marc Gardner, Founder and President of North American Bancard. “We’ve integrated a payment and POS services solution that enables our customers to ‘save a bundle when you bundle!’ From the responses we’ve received already, it’s clear our hospitality clients are seeing the intended benefits of the program.”
Concurrent with North American Bancard’s announcement of its acquisition of CDI Technology is the appointment of David L. Tepoorten as General Manager and Thomas C. Merten as Merchant Services Manager. Peter C. Violassi and Cary Nickerson will continue in their respective roles as Sales Manager and Director of Operations and Support Services.
