Last week, over 1000 merchants and payment experts gathered in Berlin for 2017’s Merchant Payment Ecosystem (MPE) conference. Across a packed three days, all of the key issues facing our industry were placed under the microscope, with thrilling keynote speeches and a lot of networking.
On Wednesday, it concluded with the prestigious MPE award ceremony… where Payvision and Acapture took home gold as the best PSP of the year! The Best PSP Award honours the provider that offered the leading overall service over the previous twelve months.
Payvision was selected for the top spot by MPE’s independent jury of payment industry experts, impressed by how Acapture’s data-driven, omnichannel solution had bolstered Payvision’s proven global acquiring network to create a powerful, comprehensive payment service.
For years, Payvision has been one of the industry’s leading card acquiring networks. With the launch of Acapture, however, it became a full-service PSP, offering a complete payment platform available for merchants looking to grow internationally.
With over 80 of the world’s most popular alternative payment methods, global card acquiring and the ability to handle desktop, mobile and point of sale transactions, it empowers merchants to reach the widest number of customers.
The single platform can be integrated in one day using one RESTful API, giving the merchant a convenient, streamlined, reliable system to handle every transaction.
It is also equipped with innovative features such as SlicePay, which simplifies and automates split settlements, and data science management, the latter of which was key to the MPE jury’s final decision.
The modern merchant has access to a huge volume of payment data that offers a new level of clarity when it comes to consumer behavior. Yet, unless they are partnered with a PSP that empowers them to centralize the various sources of data (in-store, online, mobile, etc.), they will never reap the full benefit.
Our in-house data science team crunches the data behind our merchant’s payments. Using this information, we then report back to the merchant with clear insights into how their consumers buy and actionable advice on changes that can be made to improve authorization rates, strengthen security, keep the customer connected at every touch point, reduce costs and discourage card rejections.
This supports our merchants as they strive to create a smooth shopping experience for their customers in the busy omnichannel environment and maximize their revenue.
The award is an acknowledgment of our commitment to constant innovation. We look forward to providing an even better service in the coming years.
