As mobile wallets win more and more adherents to their side, sales from mobile commerce outlets can only grow faster than they are now. However, managing all those payments can be just as big a headache for unprepared merchants as no sales at all, and Ingenico is making sure there's a solution out there for every kind of mobile-ready brand.
Ingenico announced the launch of Ingenico Connect, a new suite of solutions "to optimize the payment checkout experience for mobile or any other connected device." The platform purports to be able to recommend the perfect innovations based on clients' existing infrastructures to piece together the most efficient payment pathways possible.
It's an approach that Ludovic Houri, vice president of product at Ingenico ePayments, believes is compatible enough to suit many different types of retailers at every level of preparedness.
"With Ingenico Connect, we have made integration with our platform easy, fast and secure for our clients," Houri said in a statement. "And with our mobile-first approach, they have all the tools and services they need to optimize the checkout experience and drive conversion. Many online businesses struggle to convert traffic — particularly mobile traffic — into sales. That is why we designed Ingenico Connect, and it is very rewarding to see the results our clients are achieving with it.”
Ingenico claims that its newest product can work across 50 different languages and 150 discrete payment methods — more than enough for retailers to get up and running, but in just a few years' time, the rapid pace of IoT development could surpass that by magnitudes.
