LITTLE ROCK, Ark., March 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euronet Software Solutions, a division of leading electronic payments provider Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (Nasdaq:EEFT), today announced that Elan Financial Services, a U.S.-based transaction processor and payments services provider, has signed an agreement to implement Euronet's Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) Solution.
Made available through ATM, POS and ecommerce touch points, Euronet's DCC Solution allows acquirers to offer currency exchange services to consumers who use foreign-issued debit or credit cards. With DCC, acquirers can expand their reach, broaden their appeal to global consumers and drive more traffic to targeted touch points which in turn provides acquirers with a new revenue stream.
"Providing Dynamic Currency Conversion services to our financial institution clients gives them an advantage in being able to more effectively serve international travelers who use their ATMs," said Troy Cullen, President of Elan Financial Services. "DCC will differentiate our clients in the marketplace by providing a targeted-approach to a needed service."
By providing traveling consumers with the choice of completing transactions in the local currency or in their home currency, DCC makes conducting transactions for international travelers much easier and less intimidating. With DCC, consumers are immediately able to view the detailed costs of their transactions instead of having to wait for their monthly account statements. This allows for more accurate budgeting and easier account balancing with no surprises due to unknown fees.
"Experienced processors like Elan Financial Services understand the ever-growing need for ATM owners to provide innovative services to retain and extend their customer base," said Cindy Ashcraft, Vice President, Euronet Worldwide and Managing Director, Euronet Software Solutions. "As a leading global provider of DCC services including strategic consultation for maximum usage, Euronet is excited to partner with Elan to provide their clients with this new value-added service."
