From Inception to Innovation: Tracing the Evolution of PaymentVision’s Legacy & Impact

At PaymentVision, we understand the importance of looking back to move forward. Our journey, marked by innovation and growth, reminds us that every step shapes our present achievements. Join us as we celebrate the path we’ve traveled, from our beginnings to becoming a leader in financial technology. Each milestone reflects our dedication and propels us into the future with renewed vigor.

In 1989, Autoscribe (mother of PaymentVision) emerged as a visionary endeavor founded by the forward-thinking entrepreneur Rob Pollin. Recognizing the untapped potential within the payment processing landscape, we set out on a mission to revolutionize the industry. Armed with unwavering determination and a keen eye for innovation, we aimed to streamline and enhance the payment experience for businesses and consumers alike.


How a little company made BIG moves and got noticed

PaymentVision swiftly gained momentum as a trailblazer, reshaping the payment processing landscape. A pivotal moment arrived in 1992 when we unveiled our groundbreaking creation: the check by phone application for DOS. This pioneering achievement marked a significant milestone not only for PaymentVision but for the entire payments industry. By providing a seamless and efficient method for processing payments via telephone, we not only showcased our technical prowess but also underscored our commitment to driving convenience and efficacy.

Our vision and dedication quickly turned into an enterprise that not only endured the test of time but also carved an indelible legacy within modern commerce and extended to the founding of Lyons Commercial Data, a distinguished division within PaymentVision Corporation.

When asked about the biggest challenges we faced when attempting to break into the competitive landscape of the payment processing industry, their response was:

“We are in the payments space. Staying abreast of the latest technology and regulations are critical, but one of the biggest threats is leading with experience. No one wants to give their hard earned money way…so we have to design smooth, efficient and frictionless payment experiences.”
