With the launch of the new international mobile payment engine, the “ROAM Mobile Commerce Manager” merchants can bring intelligence to every client payment experience, whether ordering, purchasing, or communicating after the purchase.
The ROAM Mobile Commerce Manager has been designed with mCommerce service providers in mind. Built for EMV, it gives service providers the real-time control necessary to effectively manage risk, oversee mobile point of sale payment terminals, and build their base of transacting merchants while establishing their brand presence.
The combination of Ingenico and ROAM enables merchants to make the most of face-to-face interactions with customers in the field, in the store, or in their homes.
“The joint Ingenico and ROAM offering brings maturity to the mobile payments space. We are delighted to bring our customers payments expertise based on Ingenico’s footprint with a thousand acquirers in 125 countries and ROAM’s market-leading mobile payment capabilities, and local support.
