On Tuesday (Feb. 5), AEVI and Secure Trading/acquiring.com said they have teamed up to offer a POS solution that focuses on white-labeled, standalone and semi-integrated hardware and services.
The companies said in a press release that they have extended their cloud-based payment gateway (via Secure Trading) and acquiring solution (acquiring.com), adding AEVI’s payment app and POS solutions. The end result is that Secure Trading/acquiring.com can offer omnichannel POS solutions stretching across smartPOS, mPOS and Internet of Things, among other payment form factors. The AEVI payment app is vendor-agnostic.
AEVI, according to the release, was selected for the collaboration due to the reach and depth of the firm’s card-present solutions that span Europe and the United States.
The companies added that Secure Trading will initially use AEVI’s Digital Service Centre to provide standalone EMV payments for their customers, and will also offer semi-integrated solutions for key client verticals.
As noted by Jonathan O’Connor, chief commercial officer of Secure Trading, “A single platform for merchant boarding and reporting will form the foundation of our market solution. Our key focus is on client simplicity for our omnichannel, go-to-market solutions.”
He added that “our vision is to deliver product innovation and vendor-agnostic POS, serving retail, hospitality and hotels, in addition to emerging markets such as cryptocurrency and blockchain, all supported by our center of excellence based in Malta.”
In the same statement, Nigel Bidmead, senior vice president of global sales at AEVI, said, “We are delighted to have been selected by Secure Trading as their partner to step into the next generation of acquiring. The in-store point of sale environment increasingly leverages digital data to improve customer experiences by becoming an integral point of interaction. This partnership will be at the forefront of this innovation.”
