Nordea has selected Clear2Pay’s ClearPark platform as the ASP solution for its card processing. As the first step, the ClearPark platform has gone live for Nordea’s clients in Norway. Expansion into Sweden and potentially other Nordic countries is foreseen. The ClearPark solution allows for worldwide authorisation of payment or business transactions, to be used within a web shop, via web forms, in batch processing or directly linked to back office systems. In addition to handling regular credit cards, such as Visa and MasterCard, ClearPark also offers an extensive purchasing card solution. The extensive ClearPark card suite can be integrated with the EDB Card Platform. Erik Johansen, vice president of acquiring at Nordea commented: “We view ClearPark as an excellent tool for card processing, with a proven track record in the Scandinavian region and beyond. We have opted for an ASP model to get to market quickly, to stay flexible and be able to react adequately on new market requirements. The co-operation between Clear2Pay and EDB makes it possible for us to align transaction processing on all card products.”
