I have to say Aliant stepped up to the plate and went above and beyond to facilitate our needs for credit card processing. Gian Carlo at the lead backed by his whole team made sure that a difficult situation was merely a challenge that they happily accepted and pushed forward with success. Thank you to the whole team!

We've been using Aliant Payment Systems for 10 years. We have their credit card payment processing system and I like the convenience of being able to use their Gateway services. Their system runs smoothly and I don't have to think about it.

Y'all are fantastic. So far the service has been great, if I ever had a question all I had to do was call, and Heidy or Rose answers my questions immediately. Giancarlo was my point of contact from the beginning, and I was treated with respect and he made this entire process very easy from the beginning. No issues, I'm saving money [...]

Their knowledge and understanding of the process has been very greatly appreciated, and a joy to work with. [...]

They also helped us in setting up our online account. [...]
