HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  TransFirst, a leading provider of secure transaction processing services and payment enabling technologies, is pleased to announce that it has received the 2012 Acquirer Marketing Excellence Award from the Discover Network's Acquirer Advisory Council.

The Acquirer Marketing Excellence Award recognizes TransFirst for exceptional work with Discover on several key pilot programs introduced in 2011 that encourages merchants to accept Discover cards. TransFirst's proactive approach, consistent feedback, and speed to market allowed Discover to make significant enhancements to their offering. Due to both organizations' dedication and success with the program last year, Discover will be expanding the programs to national reach in early 2013.

"This joint initiative with Discover is an outstanding example of how strategic affiliations can create mutual success for our companies and also result in valuable benefits for TransFirst's merchants," says John Shlonsky, TransFirst's president and CEO. "Discover is a key partner for TransFirst, and the combined dedication and expertise of our employees should lead to future initiatives that are just as successful."

"We're pleased to recognize TransFirst with this award, which honors outstanding achievements in acquirer marketing," says Peter Illian, vice president of global merchant marketing at Discover. "The organization has played an important role in helping Discover with some of its most ambitious and successful merchant programs. TransFirst's strong industry knowledge and proven results, combined with Discover's aggressive, multi-layered approach to activating merchants, make this a mutually beneficial relationship."
