B+S Card Service, Germany, and Tsys have signed an agreement for Tsys to provide the company with back-office merchant acceptance services across Europe.
B+S Card Service is an acquirer and provider of card payment solutions with a presence in 12 European countries. Tsys’ TS Prime platform will offer B+S Card Service a flexible, scaleable and enhanced cross-border merchant acquiring capability.
“As we continue to expand our presence across Europe, Tsys was selected as the right partner to assist us with further developing our innovative merchant acquiring capabilities,” said Michael Pip, managing director of B+S Card Service. “Through Tsys we will be able to develop our existing business, expand into new markets and deliver the high-quality service that our customers expect.”
The conversion is planned for 1Q11 and will be supported from Tsys’ European datacentre based in the UK. Tsys will also support B+S Card Service with risk and fraud detection and information management solutions.
