NOVATO, CA April 13, 1999 - Inabyte Inc., a developer of applications and components for the Win32 architecture, today introduced InaCardCheck, a powerful new tool for validating credit card account numbers. InaCardCheck provides online businesses, telemarketers and traditional retailers the ability to instantly assess the authenticity of major credit card account numbers from issuers such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. An easy-to-implement Active X component that works with Visual Basic, C++, and Java, InaCardCheck will greatly reduce customer information input errors and cut down on credit card fraud.
"Inabyte recognizes the importance of ensuring accuracy and protecting against fraud in the ecommerce industry and all businesses that rely on credit card transactions," said Mark Hennessy, President of Inabyte. "InaCardCheck is a client/server component that directly addresses these concerns by giving merchants online or traditional the ability to instantly validate credit cards, and protect themselves from losing valuable business."
"Many of our corporate customers have come to us, via our Business Component Request Center, asking us for a component that could quickly verify the validity of credit card numbers," said Sam Patterson, CEO of ComponentSource, the largest on-line store for software components. "InaCardCheck is the answer. It is an effective tool that enables businesses to quickly add credit card verification functionality to their Web pages and applications. For ecommerce providers and telemarketers, InaCardCheck is a great way to streamline the purchasing process."
InaCardCheck verifies credit card account numbers and expiration date data using recognized algorithms. With its small file size of only 72 kilobytes, InaCardCheck can be hosted locally within an application or embedded within Web pages making it ideal for online retailers who want to validate credit card numbers while customers are still on their Web site. InaCardCheck can also be hosted on the server side, and can be used within active server pages. Furthermore, InaCardCheck can be utilized in standard applications on a standalone or client/server basis providing catalog retailers with a quick, easy means of verifying their customers credit card numbers while they are still on the phone.
InaCardCheck quickly validates the credit card account numbers for eight of the most popular credit cards worldwide, including: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Cart Blanche, Diners Club, Discover, Enroute and JCB.
