In 2008 CLS was formed with an expanded mission and vision in the payment systems arena. The ever changing landscape of acquiring payments and the various methods of doing so provides a challenge for even those working in the industry to understand the rates and techniques.


At CLS we have taken on that challenge to stay abreast of these changes and methods. We can break it down and make it understandable.
