Mobile payments company Seamless has signed a global agreement with PCMS Group, a software and POS provider to several big-name retailers.

Seamless, the Swedish creator of the SEQR wallet, hopes that the agreement will allow it to leverage PCMS’s client base in the US and UK.

Seamless CEO, Peter Fredell said: "What struck us about PCMS is how forward-thinking and innovative they are in order to meet their customer’s needs.

"They consistently deliver what their retailers are looking for. The agreement between PCMS and Seamless is a key component for big retailers in the UK and the US waiting to activate SEQR."

PCMS’s clients include famous brands Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Waitrose, Walgreens, Arcadia, Krispy Kreme and Waterstones.

Richard Goodall, group sales and marketing director at PCMS, said: "PCMS are delighted to be partnering with Seamless.

"Our dealings so far have been very positive and initial feedback from our customers has been superb. The speed of change in the payments industry is stunning and SEQR seem to be at the forefront of innovation.

"Our clients need payment solutions for all devices across their many sales channels."

The SEQR wallet, which allows customers to pay via QR code, recently launched in Finland, making its debut at Finnish burger chain Hesburger.

In the last couple of months Seamless has also signed deals with British-branded payment network Payzone and the Swedish Trade Federation.

Under the Payzone deal, SEQR will be integrated into the network’s offering.

This means that SEQR customers will be able to pay using the app at Payzone’s 20,000 payment terminals across Europe.

Seamless signed a frame agreement with the Swedish Trade Federation in early May, agreeing to collaborate with the trade body to cut the costs of card transactions to the Swedish economy.

Other recent deals include the rollout of mobile payments at around 430 motorway service stations across Sweden under an agreement with service station network EMAB.
