ECi e-automate has established a technology partnership with NET1/Sage Payment Systems, to offer customers fully integrated, secure, and affordable payment processing that will address and remove a lot of the pain from dealership's compliance with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards).
