MUNICH, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
- Mobile card acceptance with the card reader
- Unique white label solution including app
Wirecard is supporting the software manufacturer Lexware, part of the Haufe Group, in the expansion of its lexoffice eco-system with comprehensive payment and additional value functions on a white label basis. Wirecard's mobile card reader solution will be offered from now in Lexware's portfolio under the name "Lexware pay" and can be individually tailored to the various requirements of small companies, self-employed individuals and tradespeople.
With the flexible mobile card reader programme from Wirecard, Lexware is now in a position to offer its customers a mobile, cashless form of payment processing for EC cards for the first time. A further expansion is planned for the near future to include a comprehensive card reader product for the acceptance of credit and debit cards. The mobile card reader and the adjoining payment app is designed in the lexoffice corporate design, a platform including innovative software solutions, tools and services for small companies. It is therefore possible to make payments using an iOS-equipped smartphone or tablet anytime, anywhere.
"An everyday occurrence for many of our customer is that even once work is over they have a lot of paperwork to complete, and must wait even longer for receipt of payment," says Isabel Blank, CEO of Haufe-Lexware GmbH & Co. KG. "We are delighted to be now able to offer Lexware pay, a card payment service which meets the precise needs of small companies and self-employed individuals: complete payments using a smartphone and a small card reading device on site. It's very simple with no fixed costs, just reasonably priced fees."
Brigitte Häuser-Axtner, Vice President of Digital Sales at Wirecard, says: "We are pleased to support Lexware during the course of this exciting project. We have obtained an important multiplier for our white label program which has allowed us access to a very promising market. The mPoS solution will be adapted according to the wishes of our partners. We supply the end customer with a comprehensive approach from one source."
Lexware uses the complete spectrum of the Wirecard Group's service portfolio, which is combined in its white label solution: this ranges from its flexible card reading devices for smartphones and tablets, the Wallet app including payment processing, to the comprehensive services offered by the Wirecard Bank such as acquiring and call centre support. As a provider of white label solutions Wirecard can also create an automated registration and sign-up process in the client's own design.
Both companies have been successfully cooperating in the area of call centre support for accounting for many years.
