Netherlands-based European payments provider CCV is now using Authentic, an intelligent payments platform from NCR’s Alaric. CCV plans to implement Authentic across Europe to support a new state-of-the-art payments processing solution it has developed for its customers, due to go live in December 2015.
With the ability to access two synchronized, active processing systems, the payments platform aims to have zero down-time, thereby improving quality of payments services for its 200,000 retail customers across many European countries.
Authentic software is a generalized payment platform that can be used as a consumer payment services hub, payment gateway or device driving application, in addition to conventional card-related switching and authorization. Authentic was chosen by CCV as it provides a flexible payments processing platform on which CCV staff can develop their specific solution.
CCV is a payments provider that, with annual turnover of €130 million, is active in many countries across Europe, including Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, United Kingdom, Ireland, Hungary and France. CCV processes millions of payments daily for over 200,000 retailers across the region. This includes small and large businesses, from international chains to independent stores, in markets that include hotels, restaurants, public transport, parking and vending.
Authentic software is used by customers around the world, including some of the world’s largest financial institutions, processors and a global card scheme. It is proven to be highly scalable and robust, achieving in excess of ten thousand transactions per second in performance tests.
Authentic is a high-performance EFT authorization and routing system, which can handle transactions from all channels across the enterprise from ATM and POS to e-commerce and mobile. Unlike other traditional payments processing solutions, Authentic enables change. It has been designed from the very first release to deliver unrivaled flexibility, with message mapping, processing workflow and business logic – all user configurable. Authentic software enables clients to have total strategic control of their system, and to perform or maintain their own customizations.
