Wind River Financial is a family owned company that specializes in electronic payment acceptance solutions including credit card processing, gift & loyalty card solutions and electronic check processing. Our After the Handshake service promise is based on a simple premise: things change. The payment processing industry changes. Technology changes. Your optometric practice changes. Your patients’ needs change. And unless your processing environment changes accordingly, you can quickly find yourself at a competitive disadvantage. So instead of putting our merchant relationships on “auto-pilot,” Wind River Financial keeps close watch on all the variables that impact your rates, your hardware and software, your program design and your cardholder data security requirements. Also, we don’t require contracts so your agreement with Wind River is at-will!
