Servicios Electronicos Globales (e-Global), Mexico’s largest electronic payment (e-payment) processor, has gone live with the Authentic Open Development Payment platform provided by Alaric International and Stratus Technologies Mexico. e-Global provides switching and card processing services for a wide range of Mexican merchants and for its joint owners, BBVA Bancomer and CITI Banamex, two major acquirers in the Mexican market.
e-Global said that the decision to go with Alaric’s Authentic solution followed an extensive review of the world’s leading payment systems. e-Global required a solution that could meet its exacting quality and performance standards which included the requirement to process at a rate of up to 800 transactions per second which Authentic comfortably exceeded in a rigorous competitive benchmark carried out by e-Global.
“e-Global is the largest processor in Mexico,” said Mike Alford, chief executive officer (CEO) of Alaric. “They needed a new payment solution which would deliver exceptionally high levels of performance while at the same time would enable e-Global to have a high degree of participation in, and control over, creation of customizations. By working closely with Stratus Technologies Mexico, Alaric and Stratus were able to demonstrate that Authentic was the only product that could fully match e-Global’s criteria.”
