TAS Group and Payair have signed a partnership agreement to launch a joint solution for mobile commerce. The new offering integrates the commerce platform designed by Swedish company Payair, with a customization solution supplied by TAS.
The solution is designed to support complex realities, such as the large-scale retailers, that require advanced automation of their purchase and payment processes. The platform will also adopt the TAS Multi- Acquiring Tool, to allow the management of different acquirers.
The offer is enriched by value-added services such as geo- marketing, advanced CRM and Business Intelligence.The new solution – based on QRCode reading – supports eCommerce transactions, proximity payments (NFC) and remote payments (i.e. via QRCode).
Users can register their credit card without worrying about sensitive data being saved. This is down to Cloud architecture ensuring secure transactions. As a proof of the attention paid to the security issue, all Payair procedures and service centers are PCI / DSS certified. Though the apps users can scan a QR code specifically related to a product, a Merchant or a transaction, then safely finalize the transaction by entering a proprietary PIN.
“The agreement with Payair will allow us to leverage all the expertise and developments on the Mobile channel achieved through our platform TEMPO and gives us the opportunity to provide our customers with Cloud services,” said Andrea Bianchi, TAS Epay Director, “This delivery model, dedicated primarily to corporate customers, enables our companies to access a new market segment, with an offering focused on the most innovative channels.”
