MarketLive integrates Visa checkout
Petaluma, Calif. – MarketLive is integrating Visa Checkout directly into its e-commerce platform. Visa Checkout is a new way to pay online, on any device, with a few clicks.
Integrating Visa Checkout into MarketLive’s e-commerce platform allows MarketLive’s retail customers to offer the service to a growing number of consumers who are shopping via smartphones and tablets.
“We are the first enterprise e-commerce platform to do a full integration of Visa’s mobile-optimized Visa Checkout, which sets us apart from other technologies and makes it easier for our merchants to simplify the payment process for their customers,” said Ken Burke, founder and CEO of MarketLive Inc. “We can offer customers the trusted Visa brand as one of their checkout options, and help decrease cart abandonments, especially on mobile devices.”

In 1987, he was appointed manager of the Sprite and Diet Coke brands at corporate headquarters in Atlanta. Reyes moved to Brazil in 1990 as marketing director for the Brazil division and subsequently was named marketing and operations VP for the Mexico division. Reyes then became deputy division president for the Mexico Division in 1996, and was named its president later that year.

Former ShopperTrak CEO joins AccuStore board
AccuStore, a leading provider of site intelligence for retailers and multi-site operators, has added former ShopperTrak president and CEO Jan Davis to the board of AccuStore’s parent company, GSP.
“AccuStore’s technology meets a profound need in retail to reduce the cost and delays that arise when large retailers struggle to understand store-specific facts and data,” Davis said. “With the backing of GSP’s 35 years of experience in supporting large retail chains, AccuStore is uniquely positioned to offer a technology and support platform that will enable major retailers to realize long-lasting improvements in their bottom-line performance.”
During her tenure at ShopperTrak, from 2004 to 2008, revenues doubled and the company expanded internationally, including a wholly foreign-owned subsidiary in China. Davis also served as EVP, divisional president for TransUnion, overseeing the $100+ million Performance Data and Insurance divisions as well as the acquisition and integration of TrueLink, an interactive, direct-to-consumer products company.
As a retired CEO and active angel investor and board member, she advises companies in software, analytics, direct and interactive marketing—providing strategic direction, CEO coaching and introductions to potential customers, suppliers, partners and investors.
In addition to GSP’s board, Davis currently serves as a board member at SEAL Innovation and Showing Time, and an advisory board member for Spring Metrics, The Launch Place Seed Fund, Three Ships Media, BiddRocket and Market Vue Partners. She also serves as president, executive committee member and angel investor at Triangle Angel Partners, and an executive in residence at Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network.
She has also served as an advisory board member at Retel Technologies (purchased by ShopperTrak), WebServius, TrustedID, GeeYee and Ribstone Systems, and as a board member at RCT Analytics Ltd., the Illinois Technology Association, Chicago Finance Exchange and the Alumni Council at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. She holds BA and MBA degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
“We are truly honored to have Jan on our board,” said Geoff Neuhoff, CEO of AccuStore’s parent company GSP. “Her unique combination of retail and technology expertise coupled with her extensive experience as a business leader and adviser will be invaluable as we position AccuStore for growth as the leader in site intelligence.”
