About Pure Vanilla Exchange, Inc.
Pure Vanilla Exchange, Inc. operates in the electronic payments services business. The company provides card programs and electronic payment services that enable consumers to pay anonymously for the products and services they buy via the Internet and to pay taxes and other fees to government agencies.
The company provides products and services that enable customers to pay for, and merchants to receive payment for, goods and services. The company provides its products and services utilizing both its own proprietary network and other networks owned and operated by third parties. The companys wholly owned subsidiary is Nimble Group, Inc.
The company provides its electronic payment services through its proprietary, defined-access, closed-loop network of physical and virtual terminals. At the core of its network is the proprietary NimBill technology. The companys NimBill technology allows its network to process and facilitate varied forms of electronic payment, such as person-to-person credit/debit/stored value/prepaid cards and electronic check/ACH.
The company is developing a suite of payment products and services that are intended to address the needs of established markets and rapidly emerging markets. Three of the companys products and services are commercially available. The payment products and services the company offers and those it is developing are each intended to serve solution to an existing market need and as part of a synergistic business model. The company has identified and focused its efforts on entering three key, strategic segments of the electronic payments market - payment gateways, stored value and proprietary networks.
The company has created patent pending proprietary software, which enables integration directly into the payment processing system of processors, including Global Payments, Inc., one of the payment processors for merchant services, to serve as a payment gateway for processing credit and debit cards. The creation of this payment gateway allows the company to be an integrated payment processor in markets, such as government (state and local) and fast food or quick service restaurants (QSRs) where it has existing products and services deployed.
Through the companys NimBill Government division it provides state and local government agencies the ability to accept credit and debit cards as a form of payment for taxes and fees, at no cost to the agency, in person, online and by phone. The company processes credit and debit card transactions for government agencies in New York, Kentucky, Montana, Arizona and Wyoming. The company expects to expand NimBill Governments operations to additional state and municipal agencies and offices.
The company also facilitates payments for credit and debit card transactions for various QSRs through its BreezeOne product which allows it to integrate with certain point of sale (POS) terminals operated by PAR Technologies, Inc. and act as a payment gateway. In this business, the company integrates with a restaurants POS terminal and route the transactions through a direct link into Global Payments backend.
The company has created the secure stored value card/payment systems to facilitate the online purchases of products and services discreetly. This solution is specifically designed to tackle the issues of credit card fraud and identity theft. Through its patent-pending technology, consumers are able to purchase content and products online by either funding an online account (a Pure Vanilla Account) or by purchasing a card (a Pure Vanilla Card) online in a safe and secure environment without compromising their identity or credit.
Through its stored value products the company supports recurring and pay per use billing and provide dynamic reporting to the merchants. The company also addresses challenges that consumers face, such as user anonymity and credit card fraud.
The company has created a proprietary network in which it would process transactions for stored value cards and accounts and person-to-person payments. This network allows for the distribution, activation and processing of such cards and accounts without using third party processing (rail) networks, which eliminates costs, increases speed and most importantly protect the authenticity of transactions to mitigate security risks. By owning this network, the company is able to offer true loyalty programs since the entire transaction process flow goes through a single network thereby allowing for customer data, which merchants would use to provide increased value to a customer.
The company intends to provide its electronic payment service directly to consumers via its Web sites www.purevanilla.com, www.nimblegroup.com, www.nimbill.com and www.breezeone.com, and to distribute its stored value cards through retail outlets that would sell and load monetary value onto the cards. These retail stores would include convenience stores, bodegas, gasoline service stations and retailers that sell adult material.
The companys primary competitors include other independent processors and electronic money transmitters, and certain major national and regional banks, financial institutions and independent sales organizations, including Link2Gov, a subsidiary of Metavante Corporation; and Official Payments, a subsidiary of Tier Technologies. In the stored value market the companys competitors include InComm and NFinanSe.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
