Spire Payments has established a global partnership with Advanced Mobile Payments Inc. (AMP) aimed at delivering next-generation payment solutions for mobile POS and enterprise retail.
The partnership enables Spire Payments to progress its position in the mobile point of sale (mPOS) arena and capitalize on its acquisition of leading mPOS hardware vendor Thyron Payment Systems, that concluded in March 2013.
The partnership enables Spire Payments to pair its PosMate® Smart range of mPOS devices with AMP's varied range of software applications available on numerous smartphone and tablet environments. Kazem Aminaee, CEO of Spire Payments, commented; "This relationship is the ideal complement to our Thyron hardware acquisition and helps Spire Payments further cement its position as an innovative payments industry company and a leader in mobile POS."
AMP Solutions is based in Toronto, Canada and provides solutions for retail payments, payment gateways, POS applications and POS management. Its focus is on delivering payment applications to meet the ever-growing demand of banks and retailers to provide innovative and forward thinking solutions - targeting a wide range of hardware platforms such as smartphones, tablets and traditional POS - and utilizing all the major operating systems such as iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows.
Homayoon Saghari, CEO of AMP confirmed; "This relationship is a partnership in the true sense of the word - it allows Spire Payments to expand their value-added application portfolio by offering our solutions across their full range of devices - and it allows AMP to reach a larger audience and capitalize on Spire's first-class security architecture. One of AMP's strongest points is our ability to specify, implement and deploy next generation solutions very quickly - in partnering with Spire we will be able to target this capability to a much broader audience."
AMP's leading solutions and applications include, respectively, the v.Terminal and BizNeeds. V.Terminal is AMP's core server platform for payment while BizNeeds is a front office software application suite tte targeting small / medium sized merchants using Android-based tablets. Combined with the Spire Payments' PosMate Smart device, vTerminal and BizNeeds create a feature rich front office and payment solution perfectly suited to small medium size merchants.
Aminaee concludes; "vTerminal and BizNeeds are available immediately to all Spire Payments partners and customers around the world. The expertise at AMP and the flexibility of their solutions architecture equates to easier implementations and faster deployments - which is exactly what is needed in a payment industry that is now rapidly evolving to adopt new payment platforms. It's an exciting new proposition for our customers."
