Mary Ann Robinson - Owner TransAct

The credit card industry has seen many dynamic changes over the last few years as have many of the business environments in which we operate today.  The type of software, hardware,  and credit card company offerings have become so numerous that almost every owner is drawn to the advertising perception  that projects to minimize their overhead.  Is that the right decision or not?  What are the alternatives?  How can payment collection tools be automated to benefit all businesses from a retailer, to a contractor, to a manufacturer.  We will present an overview of the considerations a business owner should take when making a critical decision on how to collect receivables using credit cards or e-checks.

TransAct is led by Mary Ann Robinson, a seasoned professional with a successful track record of profitable business ownership. Mary Ann founded TransAct in 2010 as a financial services and consulting company focused on helping businesses collect payments from their clients – whether retail, service or restaurant – in person, online and via e-mail.

Mary Ann created a business culture to consistently deliver customized, coordinates and personalized payment collection services that contribute to their ability to maximize profit and minimize expenses. One of her key focus points, as a supporting service provider to business owners is to help them have more time to do what the business does – serve and help their customers, clients and patrons.

Mary Ann is passionate about effectively representing her clients and the financial needs of their business. As a former Senior Business Analyst for the Electronic Data Interchange, NACHA, and ACH financial processing standards for a major health insurance company, her expertise lies in communicating and consistently bridging businesses owners with the latest technology. She has years of experience working with companies of all sizes in varied markets, and understands the value, processes, advantages and disadvantages of establishing credit card processing procedures for businesses.

Mary Ann's business experience began at a very young age when her parents opened the doors to Robinson’s Fine Candies out of a small retail location in Rocky Hill, New Jersey. The family worked together to build the business from the ground up over several decades and became one of the preeminent users of merchant account and credit card processing services.

Mary Ann graduated cum laude from the University of Scranton with a B.S in Computer Science. She also holds an MBA in finance and human resources from Drexel University.
