INGENICO GROUP: Ingenico Group receives the first nexo certification for its centralised payment solution

PARIS, Dec. 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346 - ING), world leader in seamless payment, has announced obtaining the first nexo certification (Oscar OIS v3.2) for its centralised payment management solution for large merchants and organised commerce.

Developed by the main players in the industry, nexo's new-generation standards provide a set of coherent specifications for card payment acceptance. These international standards look to replace those in force in each country. In an environment where commerce is being conducted in an increasingly multi-country and multi-channel way, they offer merchants many advantages:

  • Standard systems for international card acceptance that are faster to put in place,
  • Lower payment management costs,
  • Simplified integration with checkout systems,
  • A wider range of banking partners from which to choose.

Ingenico Group has obtained the first nexo certification for its centralised management solution for card payments. This demonstrates the Group's investment in supporting merchants and developing adapted solutions for international, cross-channel payments. Results from the pilot solution deployed at Carrefour for the past several months attest this solution's reliability and its perfect fit for merchants' needs.

"We are convinced that nexo standards will be adopted very quickly. More and more international distributors understand the benefits of these standards in terms of efficiency gained and time and costs saved," explains Stéphane Jacquis, Multi-Channel Services Director at Ingenico Group. "We are pleased to be the first to offer and deploy a solution conformant to the latest nexo European standards, which confirms Ingenico Group's leadership in multi-country payment acceptance."
