Inc. Magazine named credit card processing company BluePay to its 2010 "Inc. 500" list of the fastest growing private companies in the United States. BluePay's ranking reflects the rising demand for its core service, enabling small- and medium-sized businesses to accept credit cards both in person and online.

Small business owners, especially restaurant and e-commerce website operators, have faced mounting pressure to fight credit card fraud. BluePay's solutions include advanced encryption and security features that minimize staff exposure to customers' credit card numbers, while ensuring fast and simple transaction processing. The technology also reduces the risk of merchants accepting credit card numbers stolen from other websites and retail storefronts.

BluePay director Kristen Gramigna expressed her team's pride at being ranked number 128 on the prestigious list that once included companies like Microsoft and Oracle. "Being recognized supports our belief that growth and success come with our commitment to finding innovative, effective and secure solutions for business' merchant processing needs," Gramigna said.
