CreditCall, the payment gateway and EMV software developer, has announced a surge in the growth of its U.S. business and further U.S. channel expansion. Over the past year, the company has greatly increased its operations in the U.S. payments market by providing card payment processing innovations to major parking equipment manufacturers and operators in six discrete areas of the US parking industry.
The U.S. parking market is increasingly turning to CreditCall’s card payment processing solutions due to innovations such as Point-to-Point Encryption and in-app payments on smartphones and tablets as well as the company’s vast payment solution portfolio.
Dave Witts, CreditCall’s new President of US Payment Services, commented, “It will be great to be selling what is essentially a universal credit card processing solution, and this multi-channel capability is becoming increasingly important to major operators and city authorities alike. They are running Pay by Cell schemes alongside traditional garage parking, and to have a common processing and reporting system is a huge bonus.”
