About Us

CardDog was conceived and developed almost a decade ago by Transaction Resources, Inc. to deliver a solution to its customers’ ever changing payment processing needs.

In 1993, Transaction Resources Inc. (TRI) was incorporated with a commitment to provide high-quality payment solutions, hands-on sales & customer service and competitive rates to its clients. Its founders, David Frick, Jesse Snyder and Phil Kluge, brought years of combined experience in bankcard processing, transaction processing, payment hardware and software, sales, service and management to the table.

From the outset, TRI worked with and represented a number of gift card processing companies, however the vendors’ generic solutions did not offer the flexibility and features that TRI wanted to provide to its customers. In 2009 when TRI made the strategic decision to develop its own cloud-based card processing platform for gift cards and other in-house card programs, CardDog was born. Since that time, both the product and customer base has grown tremendously. With the more recent advent of EMV, the CardDog platform has been further enhanced with Argos to offer end-to-end encryption and tokenization of credit and debit card transactions along with in-house card programs.

The flexibility of the CardDog system, its wide range of POS interfaces, and the unique TRI Conversion Guarantee™ set it apart from other more limited systems. The Conversion Guarantee™ is the only one in the merchant and gift card processing industry, and it goes like this:

All products are programmed, tested and ready for operation prior to delivery.
Clients receive on site installation and training where possible.
Clients receive personalized follow-up from our support team.
Periodic reviews are available to all clients guaranteeing efficient and cost-effective payment processing.
All conversions are complete only when clients are 100% satisfied!
