However, the need to integrate their WordPress-based system with Moneris—a payment method standard in Canada—presented a significant challenge that required a sophisticated solution.

The Problem

Prior to engaging with OCTAGT, Atum encountered several hurdles:

  1. Integration Complexity: Their WordPress platform, which managed product and service information, customer details, and subscriptions, needed to be seamlessly integrated with Moneris.
  2. Compliance Requirements: Ensuring PCI Compliance and adhering to Moneris’ process definitions added layers of complexity to the integration.
  3. Operational Inefficiency: The lack of an integrated system led to manual processes for transaction management, which were time-consuming and error-prone, hampering productivity.

The Solution

OCTAGT implemented a multi-faceted approach to address these challenges:

  1. Moneris Integration: The first phase involved integrating Moneris with the WordPress platform using WooCommerce and WooCommerce Subscriptions. This ensured that all transactions were securely processed and recorded.
  2. Front-End Development: Recognizing an opportunity for improvement, OCTAGT developed a custom front-end interface for managing subscription products. This interface was built using various Azure services to ensure scalability and reliability.
  3. Seamless Integration: The new front-end seamlessly integrated with Moneris, enabling real-time transaction processing and management, thereby eliminating the need for manual data entry and reconciliation.


The implementation resulted in significant improvements for Atum Corporation:

  1. Enhanced Efficiency: The integrated solution allowed Atum to view all user actions within WordPress, streamlining their workflow.
  2. Operational Gains: The front-end integration with Moneris functioned flawlessly, eliminating manual processes and reducing the risk of errors.
  3. Improved Customer Service: With optimized processes, Atum was able to focus more on delivering superior customer service rather than dealing with backend operational issues.
  4. Scalability: The use of Azure services ensured that the solution was scalable, accommodating future growth and changes in business needs.


The collaboration between Atum Corporation and OCTAGT successfully overcame the integration challenges, resulting in a robust, efficient, and scalable system. This partnership not only addressed immediate operational inefficiencies but also positioned Atum for future growth.
