CCV selects NCR’s Authentic software to deliver zero down-time payment services

The deal will impact 200,000 retail customers across ten European countries. 

CCV plans to implement Authentic across Europe to support a new advanced 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.

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 will provide CCV a flexible payments processing platform on which CCV staff can develop their specific solution.

Enny van de Velden, group managing director at CCV, said: “E-commerce and m-commerce are growing rapidly throughout Europe as consumer behaviour is changing. In addition, the current separation between in-store and online shopping is disappearing as we evolve towards an integrated physical and virtual brand experience,”

“As these trends converge, the consumer of today is heading for an omni-channel shopping experience. To help enable this our retail customers require a zero down-time payment solution. NCR’s Authentic platform proved the most flexible development environment in which we could create this payment solution.”

Authentic is an EFT authorization and routing system, which can handle transactions from all channels across the enterprise from ATM and POS to ecommerce and mobile. 

Unlike other traditional payments processing solutions, Authentic enables change. It enables clients to have total strategic control of their system, and to perform or maintain their own customizations.
