PARIS and MILAN, June 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Ingenico, the global leader in payments acceptance solutions, has announced that Axerve, one of Italy’s most innovative merchant services providers, will be the first company in Italy to introduce Ingenico’s PPaaS (Payments Platform as-a-Service) solution.
Ingenico’s PPaaS will allow Axerve to streamline the service they bring to their merchants providing a simpler, easier, onboarding experience. It provides Axerve with a device brand-agnostic solution and a platform to onboard and manage all its connected devices, merchants, and the transactions they process, in real time.
The new solution will help Axerve monitor its estate of payment devices and provides an early warning of any technical issues affecting them, alongside a clear view of merchant value to Axerve. The global nature of the PPaaS platform will allow Axerve to accelerate its expansion into new countries and markets
PPaaS will also allow Axerve to benefit from a range of business applications that help merchants better manage their activity and offer new capabilities to their customers.
Importantly, the platform will work with both Ingenico and third-party devices, keeping things simple and consistent for Axerve.
Axerve, owned by Fabrick, provides state-of-the-art payments acceptance solutions to over 100,000 clients. Keen to capitalise on the potential of the PPaaS platform, it is already actively exploring new use cases such as SoftPoS which enable merchants to accept payments on a smartphone.
"As a leading payments ecosystem enabler, we trust Ingenico to help us to serve our customers when it comes to the management of their data and devices. Our partnership with Ingenico will help us accelerate our international expansion, while also providing exceptional added value to merchants across our entire client portfolio" said Alessandro Bocca, CEO of Axerve
