The integrated solution allows for a secure payment experience while streamlining administrative processes and reducing costs.
Expertise is a core tenet of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) program and allows Oracle partners to put their capabilities in a focused area. Ultimately, Expertise is designed to make it easy for customers to identify partners who can deliver solutions and minimize risk for their needs.
In order to achieve the Oracle Validated Integration Expertise, partners like Fortis must meet a series of qualifiers, including demonstrating that the integration performs as documented.
