Interface:2010 is The Interface Marketing Supplier Integration Institute, widely known as INTERFACE and IMSI, is an international-standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national marketing and supply chain management organizations. Founded on 11 March 2009, the organization promulgates worldwide proprietary marketing supplier integration standards. It is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. While IMSI defines itself as a non-governmental organization, its ability to improve the marketing supply chain, reduce costs [1] and eliminate risk makes the IMSI highly influential within the government sector.[2]

IMSI enables sophisticated suppliers of marketing services such as fulfillment providers, call centers and online marketers to integrate the back office functions of data transfer, CRM and billing. Enabling partner organizations to provide end to end marketing service supply chain management. The standards enable IMSI approved organizations to offer a seamless service and billing environment to clients looking for streamlined management of their direct marketing and CRM activity. The IMSI aims to deliver a single point of contact, billing ( if required) and accountability to end users, while still enabling clients to access specialist service providers.[3] Member organisations are generally but not exclusively also ISO accredited.[4]

The standard fully complies with the PCI DSS standards.
