Eliot Management Group Overview
Eliot Management Group is a Fort Worth, Texas-based merchant account provider that acts as a subsidiary of First American Payment Systems. Unlike other First American Payment Systems companies, Eliot Management Group functions as an independent reseller and does not appear to be a DBA of another business or several other businesses. However, Eliot Management Group is also located at the exact same address as First American Payment Systems, which raises the question of whether it shares offices, employees, or resources its parent company.
Eliot Management Group’s products and services include point-of-sale solutions, check scanning and imaging, merchant cash advance, inventory management, gift and loyalty programs, mobile payment processing, ATM placement, e-commerce solutions, and recurring billing. The company offers a dedicated phone support line but does not list its hours of operation. Brady Harris is listed as the president of Eliot Management Group.
