BLACKSTONE LAUNCHES NEWLY DESIGNED WEBSITE
Blackstone, one of the nation’s leading electronic providers of prepaid telecommunications products and services launched its redesigned website today at www.blackstoneonline.com
Designed by Michael Cruz, Blackstone’s web master and Mario Gil, Blackstone’s senior web developer, the site incorporates features such as Macromedia Flash, ASP Support for e-commerce applications and seasonal e-greeting cards. According to Cruz, “the website takes advantage of the latest Internet browsers.” The comprehensive website offers Blackstone’s entire product line, including the Blackstone POS, prepaid cellular and prepaid calling cards. It also offers full web-based management reporting for its agents and merchants.
Carlos Rodriguez, Blackstone’s director of marketing, says “The new site has been designed to complement our national marketing campaign. It’s easy to navigate, and enables our merchants and agents the ability to obtain real-time reports on their POS accounts.” The site will also include POS applications for merchants to complete online. “Our research has determined that many merchants utilize the World Wide Web not only for research purposes, but also to purchase products at their convenience, not at the convenience of the vendor. Our newly designed website has taken this into consideration,” adds Rodriguez.
Blackstone has developed the most innovative point-of-sale system. By successfully integrating the processing of all major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express & Discover Card) and ATM/Debit cards with the sale of prepaid products into one, easy-to-use POS terminal, Blackstone POS, is revolutionizing the electronic transaction industry. Headquartered in Miami, Florida, Blackstone has rapidly become one of the country’s largest providers of prepaid telecommunications products and services with over 300,00 retail locations nationwide.
