Transforming Digital Commerce


Scratch Software Inc. launches new full-stack portability platform to protect business profits.


For Immediate Release


Phoenix, August 20, 2020  — Scratch Software Inc., the Phoenix, Arizona company that pioneered Surcharging as a Service™ announced today that it has expanded its technology offering with the launch of its new proprietary full-stack portability platform, Scratchware™ .


The new platform is set to relieve the business owner from the burden of fees, friction, and fraud typically related to eCommerce and credit card processing.


Through a single integration, Scratch’s new technology builds a secure network between providers, equipping business owners with the infrastructure and simple interfaces to unify payments and transaction data all under one platform. Now businesses can avoid vendor lock-in by using the same data anywhere and seamlessly transitioning between providers.


“Portability is the way of the future,” says Lorde Astor West Scratch’s CEO and Founder.  “Until now business owners have been locked-in to using multiple vendors and platforms that did not play nice with each other.  By offering businesses the ability to unify all their data we are closing the gaps created by multiple legacy systems, creating a clear view of all of their business data, and protecting a tremendous amount of revenue.”  


With Scratchware™ in play, businesses can now increase margins by seeing all of their data in one place,  recovering revenue typically lost to processing fees, realizing an uplift in purchase volume with flexible payment options, and optimizing processing costs with intelligent routing.


Scratchware™ apps and services are being offered on a use-what-you-need, pay-as-you-go basis with discounts for businesses who process a large volume of transactions. Scratch is currently inviting strategic groups of merchants and select reseller partners to participate in industry-specific pilot programs focused on providing the exact solutions needed to meet the business goals of the program’s merchants.
