TSYS (TSS) announced today the launch of its new VAR Partner Connect Program.
The program focuses on TSYS' extensive VAR partner relationships and provides TSYS clients access to industry-leading third-party payment processing applications across a range of industries. By engaging actively with TSYS, VAR partners will now have access to multiple avenues designed to give them visibility with TSYS clients, as well as more individualized partner support and advanced product and service notifications.
"We intend to be the most effective VAR channel in the industry, a goal which builds on the TSYS vision of being the leading global payments solutions provider to those we serve," said Eric Barth, senior director, product management, TSYS Merchant Services.
The TSYS VAR Partner Connect Program gives clients access to hundreds of VAR partners utilizing a single Web-based touch point, which saves time and energy in searching for the perfect payment application while also providing VARs broad visibility across the payments industry. Since TSYS has established processing relationships with most of the largest U.S. acquirers, as a TSYS VAR Partner Connect member, payment applications need only be certified to one platform in order to reach a large segment of the acquiring population.
"Participation in the TSYS VAR Partner Connect program provides Precidia valuable exposure to the TSYS sales channel," said Deepak Wanner, president and CEO of Precidia Technologies, Inc. "By partnering on key joint marketing activities like webinars and collateral, Precidia benefits from TSYS' robust platform to educate merchants and in turn provides TSYS with leading-edge integrated payment technology."
"Soon after our initial involvement with the TSYS VAR Partner Connect program, we produced two very promising partnership and joint marketing opportunities, and we are excited that these opportunities will continue to grow," said Mike Byrne, CEO of IVR Technology Group. "The TSYS VAR Partner Connect program staff has been very involved with us from the beginning to ensure our success, and the experience has far exceeded our expectations."
