About Forward Pay Systems
Verne Severson founded Forward Technologies in 1985 as a contract and consulting company.  The company became CommStar in 1992 following the successful introduction of its vending machine credit card reader.  In 2005 CommStar was split into two companies with Verne Severson taking the credit card reader system into Forward Research, his new contract engineering business. 

In 2007, the company name was changed to Forward Pay Systems to reflect its focus on payment systems.
