Payworks launches Pulse – the gateway technology powering modern-day commerce

Today, Payworks officially announced the launch of Pulse, a next generation payment gateway technology. Pulse simplifies in-person card payments by making it quick, easy and cost-efficient for developers to integrate card readers into their Point of Sale solutions, both in stationary and mobile environments. Customers using a payment solution powered by Pulse are able to pay using the latest payment technology, including EMV Chip & PIN cards, contactless cards and mobile wallet payments such as Apple Pay, Android Pay and Google Pay.

With the exponential growth of eCommerce and mCommerce payments, the area of improving in-person payments was left untouched by payment technology providers, mostly due to the massive infrastructure changes required to upgrade outdated systems and the increasingly high security standards imposed by the card schemes. With Pulse, Payworks introduces an open, cloud-based payment processing infrastructure, which is open for innovation, easily accessible and pre-certified for developers and merchants.

Pulse is licensed by payment providers to satisfy the increasingly demanding needs of both their largest merchants, as well as small and medium sized businesses. Alongside Pulse, Payworks provides Accept and Engage as additional solutions. Accept is a complete white-labeled mobile POS solution, intended for payment providers wanting to offer an easy to use payment acceptance solution to small and medium-sized businesses, whereas Engage is Payworks’ analytics and customer engagement platform that brings the transparency of the online world, to the offline store.

Some of the leading payment processors in the world, such as Barclaycard, Stripe, SIX, Elavon and Concardis are already connected to Pulse and Point of Sale solutions powered by Pulse can be found in a variety of different industries such as taxis, restaurants & bars, stadiums, fashion stores, and festivals.

Christian Deger, Co-Founder and CEO of Payworks: “The official launch auf Pulse is a very important milestone for our company. Pulse will create fantastic opportunities for our partners and clients, both technically as well as commercially.”

The launch of Pulse is accompanied with a complete rebranding of Payworks’ corporate identity, reflecting the company’s evolution and vision for the future. The new Payworks symbol represents the openness and flexibility of the Pulse technology, and combined with strong, yet young typography, it expresses stability and transparency. Payworks is now colored in a deep blue expressing the firmness, knowledge and strength of the company, upon which vibrant, exciting, playful and expressive colors showcase all of the possibilities and innovation that is built on top of Pulse.
