UPDATE Sept. 7, 2010—- There are now 2 videos with this entry. Check out both to see what you’re getting when you depend on Chargify.—- UPDATE

We recently did a significant system upgrade. Some of you may remember it – it was a few hours on a recent Saturday night.

The upgrade increased our capacity, which we could have done on many computing platforms, but the real story is this: We moved a long way up the ladder of financial transaction experience & security.

Our new transaction processing facility is focused on financial transactions. That’s the majority of their business. The rest of their business is related to healthcare and Sarbanes-Oxley. All serious stuff.

Our knowledge and experience at Chargify is quite good (especially through Grasshopper Group), but it’s not the same as having a large staff with 15 years of highly focused experience.

At our new facility, we’re surrounded by giants like MasterCard, Bank of America, and Toyota. We’re a small fish, and that’s good – we benefit from the standards that are demanded by the big fish.

Chargify merchants also benefit! They don’t even have to think about it, which is how it should be.

I’ve told people that this summer at Chargify has been a time of, “Unseen developments that are very appealing.”

We appreciate the great support we’re seeing from developers and business owners, and as we head into Fall, we’ll continue developing the features that help you run a better business.
