EVO to white label ROAM’s platform to offer mPOS solution to U.S. customers
BOSTON, Mass. – April 8, 2014 – ROAM (www.roamdata.com), an Ingenico company and the leading mobile commerce platform provider, announced today that EVO Payments International (EVO), a leading payment service provider operating in the United States, Canada and Europe, will leverage ROAM’s platform to extend its full range of electronic payment service offerings to include mobile point of sale (mPOS).
Through this strategic partnership, EVO will provide its large U.S. customer base of over 300,000 merchants with ROAM’s advanced mPOS solutions, including the G5X mobile card reader and ROAMpay X4 mPOS application, while leveraging the advanced security and management capabilities of ROAM’s mobile payments engine.
This new fully branded solution is now available to all of EVO’s U.S. customers, with potential to expand into the company’s global offerings. EVO is among the largest fully integrated merchant acquirer and payment processors in the world, processing in nearly 50 markets and 120 currencies.
ROAM continues to accelerate its growth in the payment service provider (PSP) channel-to-market to deliver secure white-label mPOS solutions to their merchant portfolio. More generally, thanks to Ingenico’s global network, ROAM increasingly opens its mobile commerce network to many of the world’s leading acquirers, independent sales organizations (ISOs), financial institutions, and telecommunications providers.
“As part of our strategy, we work with a broad and diverse ecosystem of partners to provide innovative mPOS solutions that uniquely address the needs of all merchants,” said Eric Hoffman, Senior Vice President for ROAM. “EVO is a recognized leader in the payment processing industry and we’re very excited to have them join our growing partner community.”
“Before selecting ROAM as one of EVO’s mPOS partners, we had several must-have criteria in mind, including seamless integration capabilities, advanced security features, and the flexibility to customize and brand the full solution,” said Kevin Lambrix, Executive Vice President and COO of EVO. “During our evaluation it became clear that ROAM’s solution meets these criteria and complements our sophisticated platform.”
ROAM will demonstrate its end-to-end mPOS solutions at the ETA’s annual conference, TRANSACT 14, taking place April 8-10, 2014 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas at the Ingenico booth #754.
