BPC-USA, a provider of Open System electronic payment (e-payment) solutions for the North American financial industry, has launched a pre-packaged payment switch. The solution combines BPC’s SmartSwitch software with the HP Integrity NonStop platform. The integrated solution is aimed at financial institutions, local independent service organisations (ISOs), retailers and merchant processors.
“As part of our long-term and extensive collaboration with HP, we have created a proven and pre-configured solution to enable the local financial companies to leverage their payment switch. SmartSwitch on HP Integrity NonStop servers brings a range of advantages, including high performance, configurable authorisation, while also reducing migration risks and lowering acquisition, deployment and operating costs,” said Marc Solomon, senior vice president (SVP) North American sales and managing director, BPC-USA.
