ERIC BOSTIC, ETA CPP™

“Having the ETA CPP™ certification helped me land my largest account to date. I had been working on a very large account for some time now and the CFO was preparing to make her choice of which processor to use between another agent and myself. I informed her that I had recently attained my ETA CPP™ certification (June ’13). She actually went to the ETA website, did her own research and chose me because I was certified. The company is a $48 million dollar / year account. Needless to say, I am happy, happy, happy that I took the time to get certified.”

WILLIAM PAUL
DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, NORSE CORPORATION

Q. When did you receive your ETA CPP™ designation?

A. I received my ETA CPP™ designation with the first class in November 2011.

Q. Why did you decide to seek the certification?

A. I decided to get the certification to demonstrate to those people who I was dealing with that they could count on what I was telling them about our business as one who was knowledgable and had experience which better enabled me to answer their needs.

Q. How have merchants reacted to your certification?

A. Many of my clients both merchants and people in our industry were not aware of what the designation or certification was. However once they found out, they felt more at ease in allowing me to help them satisfy their goals.

Q. What benefits have you and / or your organization realized from your certification?

A. My certification lends credence to the fact that our company has people on staff who fully understand the workings of our industry and are not just interested in “Selling Stuff”. As someone who has been both a registered ISO and now a VAR, it allows us to show our clients we really do KNOW and UNDERSTAND what they are doing and try and use our products to where they will benefit each reseller the most.
