Apriva, the leading provider of secure end-to-end wireless transaction and information solutions, and Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leading worldwide provider of payment technology services, today announced an agreement to deliver white label mobile payment solutions with EMV to Global Payments’ U.S. customers.
“Mobile payments are increasingly crucial in today’s market. Merchants that haven’t embraced a mobile solution risk missing out on users who expect to be able to pay with their mobile device as well as via traditional methods,” said Frank T. Young, SVP, Global Product and Innovation at Global Payments. “AprivaPay Plus complements our existing suite of mobile solutions by giving our merchants the tools needed to offer a cutting-edge mobile solution, designed to provide the transaction security EMV affords.”
This agreement enables Global Payments to provide white-labeled mobile payment solutions to their U.S. clients through Apriva’s mobile payments solution, AprivaPay Plus. AprivaPay Plus is designed to turn Apple or Android devices into mobile points of sale, enabling merchants to leverage their existing devices to meet customer demands for mobile purchases. This streamlined application is ideal for small and mid-sized merchants, and can be used in any number of venues – storefront or mobile. AprivaPay Plus is designed to deliver EMV chip card and MSR support, cloud based inventory, multi-user capability, enhanced reporting features to merchants via an online web companion portal, the latest device and operating system compatibility, and compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations.
“Our society is increasingly dependent on mobile technologies, and payments are no exception,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, senior vice president, North America sales and marketing communications at Apriva. “By working with companies like Global Payments, we are making EMV capable mobile payment solutions available to a wider market, enabling merchants to securely serve their customer base no matter what payment methods the consumer prefers.”
