Las Vegas, Nevada - Secure Payment Systems (“SPS”) is pleased to announce a 21% membership interest of Minneapolis based Red Rock Innovations LLC (“Red Rock”).

Red Rock has built a software platform that is now being marketed exclusively to sovereign nations so as to automate online vendor licensing, employee vetting, and online vendor sales tax collection efforts that are each in large part manual processes today. Red Rock has already collaborated with the Minnesota Association of Indian Chambers of Commerce for exclusive distribution of Red Rock products and services to Minnesota tribal entities.

Besides having an equity stake in the success of this unique vertical offering, SPS will additionally be the exclusive provider of third party electronic ACH payment processing for handling online vendor payments. SPS Founder and Chairman Linden (Lin) Fellerman commented, “In addition to investing in what we believe to be of significant value to Tribal country needs via Red Rock’s automation platform, we also see the value in building a large payment processing portfolio for tribal nations across North America to cement Red Rock’s position as the preferred platform provider”.

Ashwani Dhiman and Stan Smith, co-founders of Red Rock Innovations, said of the SPS investment, “We couldn’t be more excited about the alignment with the tribal community and our partnership with SPS. SPS delivers the necessary payment processing infrastructure as well as senior level management attention to help us shape our growth strategies going forward”.
