Dave Ward, serial entrepreneur and CEO of Meticulosity made a bold move two years ago to escape the brutal winters of Upstate New York. Looking for the ideal environment to rapidly grow his web and ecommerce company internationally while also seeking a great place to raise a family, he relocated to a paradise island. Ward found the ideal place at Cayman Enterprise City (CEC), a technology-focused special economic zone in the Cayman Islands. Sunshine and tax benefits lured Ward, but when he set up in the Zone he was pleasantly surprised; he became part of a vibrant, burgeoning community of like-minded Internet and digital entrepreneurs who says Ward, unleashed his creativity. His company now boasts an impressive book of international brand clients and has just launched a new software division.
Meticulosity’s latest product provides custom integration between website platforms and First Atlantic Commerce (FAC) a payment gateway that allows secure credit card processing offshore. Meticulosity is currently developing plug-and-play integrations with Magento, Miva, Bigcommerce, and 3dcart and can build custom solutions for any website platform. Additionally, with CEC partners Brac Informatics Centre, Meticulosity assists clients in moving their transactional servers offshore to provide a physical presence in a tax neutral jurisdiction. FAC offers:
- Realtime Secure Processing
- Muti-Currency Options
- Virtual Terminals and Hosted Processing
- Fraud Mitigation
It appears that warm winters, no commuting, and time to enjoy an active island lifestyle, are all factors that stimulate creativity and business growth – just ask Dave Ward!
