Access Group (AG) was established in the early 1990’s. Its’ primary initial focus was to administer and support a Member Benefit Merchant Account Program for ASI (The Advertising Specialty Institute). ASI is a large support organization for 25 thousand+ members consisting of Suppliers and Distributors in the Ad Specialty/Promotional Products industry.
AG has since evolved into Access Group Processing (AGP). Today, more than 20 years later, AGP is the leading provider of discounted merchant services for the entire promotional products industry. AGP also now provides specialized discounted merchant services to the broadcasting, photography, construction, electrical, accounting & information technology industries. AGP is an industry leader and is considered by many to be the “go to” experts in B2B and card-not-present credit-card transactions, Level 3 processing and providing the overall lowest costs on transactions.
In addition to specialized member/group merchant account programs, AGP has also become an innovator of customized application integrated payment & data Solutions. In the fall of 2011, the founders of AGP launched a sister company called Payment Data Secure (PDS). PDS was created to primarily focus on providing innovative, low-cost, PCI compliant custom payment solutions for organizations that want to seamlessly integrate credit-card and ACH Check into their software or web applications.
