ISTS Worldwide is a successful solutions provider specializing in the retail and payments industry, with experience working with VeriFone products and customers.
"Partnering with ISTS significantly expands VeriFone's professional services capabilities and provides customers with one-stop shopping for integrated products and services," said Bud Waller, VeriFone executive vice president, Integrated Solutions. "ISTS has demonstrated unique expertise in retail payments front-end and back office applications and has developed a cost-effective global delivery model."

The new professional services organization and partnership will enable VeriFone to deliver any custom solution or systems integration project required by its retail and software customers.
"As retailers increase the customer touch points within their stores, implement self-service applications or add new payment methods utilizing VeriFone products, these new applications need to be integrated into a retailers existing infrastructure to deliver full value to the retailer," Waller said.
