Focus is on preparing businesses to adapt to changes in consumer payment preferences
TORONTO, May 19, 2015 /CNW/ - Moneris, one of North America's largest processors of debit and credit card payments, today announced its new brand positioning – Moneris "Be Payment Ready". This new brand represents Moneris' commitment to help customers and partners navigate a constantly changing payments landscape. Being "payment ready" means businesses are empowered to offer their customers more ways to pay. This includes reliable, secure and fast transactions that go beyond the traditional point-of-sale (POS).
"Our new brand promise of "Be Payment Ready" reinforces our expertise and leadership in the payments industry," says Angela Brown, CEO and President of Moneris. "Electronic payment is a consumer preference, and our goal is to make sure businesses have the payment solutions they need to succeed, backed with Moneris' security, reliability and support".
Card acceptance is integral to business success. A recent survey by Moneris found that 77 per cent of Canadians prefer to pay using debit or credit cards, and 48 per cent of respondents reported they left a store that did not accept cards. Moneris makes customers "payment ready" by providing chip-and-PIN- enabled POS technology, mobile POS, eCommerce and integrated business solutions. The increased prevalence of contactless POS, mobile wallets, and other new payment innovations are represented and encouraged by the new brand.
The Moneris "Be Payment Ready" brand will be used in conjunction with bold, eye-catching colours and design elements. In addition, the familiar Moneris logo will be adjusted, with removal of the word 'Solutions'. Moneris Solutions Corporation will remain the legal entity name for contractual purposes.
