On TSG’s GEM Index, CSG Forte surpassed the average score by over 12 points. Benchmarked against more than 20 gateway providers, the Index is an overall scorecard for gateway metrics based on five key areas: gateway minute outage, gateway availability, transaction speed, transaction success rate, and authorization rate.
