MONTREAL, Oct. 1, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Hybrid Paytech (CNSX: Freeport Capital - FAS), a leader in mobile payment innovation has announced its new enterprise sales partnership with PiiComm Inc., one of the largest Canadian resellers of enterprise hardware and software for fleet, delivery and transport. Companies will be able to integrate their existing merchant accounts to enable payment and checkout on new and existing mobile devices outside the four-walls; ideal for eliminating risk and cost from cash-on-delivery (COD) payments, on-the-spot sales and a more efficient way of collecting receivables.
''Based on Hybrid Paytech's ability to integrate with existing merchant accounts (MIDs) through various acquirers, PiiComm now has the power to enable their clients to accept mobile payments over new and existing hardware devices.'' Said Kevin Conabree, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Hybrid Paytech, ''Hybrid and PiiComm have been working together to be able to offer very important technology that wasn't thought to be possible by many clients. Now it is.'' Many medium and large-scale companies have been increasingly looking to adopt mobile payment systems to add value to customer service and streamline the receivables process, however many solutions remain cumbersome with too many moving parts, multiple solutions to integrate and inadequate merchant services. The one-stop solution will be a very valuable for the 50-10,000 member fleet and mobile workforce to which PiiComm will be targeting. Hybrid's payment platform is now available to accept credit payments over existing Motorola Solutions MC65 and MC75 devices running Windows Mobile 6.x operating systems, as well as iOS and Android smart-phones and tablets, and will be enabled for Chip-and-PIN (EMV) credit and debit as early as Q1 2013.
PiiComm has been developing mobile solutions for the Transportation & Logistics industry, Field Service workers, Government agencies and Healthcare suppliers who all collect fees for goods or services in the field. "We are very excited to be able to offer our large and small business clients the opportunity to collect payments in the field" said Shawn Winter, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development. "PiiComm has supplied customers with specialized rugged computing devices to improve their businesses, however managing payment transactions with this technology in Canada has been a challenge even though the payment accessories have been available for years. Hybrid Paytech has not only produced a solution to finally make mobile payments a reality, they have done it in record time."
