BC Solutions, with owner Erika Powell, has acquired Acuity Merchant Services, a merchant services provider, to offer expanded services to businesses across the United States.  The intent to acquire Acuity Merchant Services was to streamline processes and provide clients with even more services across a larger geographical footprint. 

“Acuity Merchant Services has a long history of supporting merchants and community banks throughout the Southeast United States over the past 12 years,” says Austin Center, president of Acuity Services. “The foundation of Acuity is to support their customers with the utmost integrity and an honest and forthright business culture.  It is with great honor to welcome BC Solutions as our new managing partner.  Acuity Merchant Services and BC Solutions are now positioned to grow and thrive while continuing to support our banking partners and merchants with the same integrity, honor and honest business culture that made us one of the top merchant services providers in the Southeast.”

The acquisition is a positive development for Acuity Merchant Services’ existing customers, as they will continue receiving the same personalized customer service with the addition of broader and customizable solutions to fit their specific needs, said officials.

“With Erika's vast experience and knowledge of the business, we knew she would be the perfect fit to take over the ownership of the business," said Nelson Bowers, previous co-owner of Acuity Merchant Services. "She is extremely motivated and driven.  I am excited to see where she takes the company from here."

BC Solutions "provides clients payment processing solutions customized to meet their specific needs. Whether it’s straight-forward credit card acceptance, e-commerce, or customized point of sale systems – we have a solution that helps our clients pay their way.
