Ingenico and ADVAM Partner
Posted 7 July 2016, Australia
Ingenico Group and ADVAM successfully partner in Australia and Europe to equip players in the unattended market with state-of-the-art cashless payment solutions
Ingenico Group, the global leader in seamless payment, and ADVAM, global provider of payment solutions, have been partnering to provide ADVAM customers with a unique, flexible and secure cashless payment solution, which fulfils the requirements of PCI Level 1 and EMV standards.
The UnattendedPayments solution combines ADVAM’s proprietary payment gateway with Ingenico Smart Terminals’ iSelf payment devices for unattended markets. Customers therefore benefit from a PCI Level 1 and EMV certified solution as well as from the proven processing capability of the ADVAM Gateway which handles dedicated links with acquirer banks in over 20 countries and offers multi-currency acquiring and access to global markets.
ADVAM started to partner with Ingenico Group’s ePayments business unit in 2014 to facilitate one-time and recurring parking payments in Europe. With this new jointly-developed solution, ADVAM and Ingenico Group have expanded their relationship to offer a truly unique omni-channel experience which has been successfully implemented in the parking sector and several innovative unattended vending sectors around the world.
John Tait, Managing Director of Ingenico Group Australia, believes, “Through the partnership with ADVAM, the UnattendedPayments solution is achieving true value to businesses in Australia, UK and Europe. This is in part due to the flexibility of Ingenico’s iSelf range that supports all payment types (EMV Chip and PIN, contactless notably), to suit a variety of deployment scenarios. Combined with ADVAM’s expertise and integration with vending partners, access control and the secure processing of payments through to the clients preferred bank, the jointly developed solution has assisted clients to remove the burden of handling cash and also increase sales.”
“You can see the success of the Ingenico Group and ADVAM partnership when global parking and vending operators are choosing our EMV compliant end-to-end solution”, says ADVAM’s Global Channel Partner Director, Paul Sidwell. He also explains that “cashless payment and the increasing use of contactless NFC technology perfectly fit with the needs of merchants and consumers. ADVAM has recently undertaken major roll outs of the solution at Westfield, Wilson Parking and NCP, assisting the companies to realise their efficiency gains and help guide them through their EMV journey. This can be a big challenge for some organisations, so it’s vital that they have the right partners in ADVAM and Ingenico.”
