London, 5/04/17, Sydney-based start-up Rapporr’s communication platform has arrived on AEVI’s award-winning Global Marketplace, a B2B app store for smart Point of Sale terminals, to offer a more efficient resolution to the communication challenges faced by mobile workers. The solution offers a new wave in secure 2-way bank and acquirer communications to merchants and can be integrated across AEVI’s range of smart, mobile POS devices.“Having Rapporr become part of our open ecosystem is really exciting for us here at AEVI” said Mike Camerling, Chief Product Officer, AEVI. “Their innovative take on merchant communication expands the range of value-added apps and services available to banks and acquirers on our Global Marketplace, and provides them with a solution that will bring them closer to their merchant customers.” 80% of today’s workers are mobile and often reliant on consumer social media products for communications. Rapporr delivers an enterprise-grade communication platform designed to help these workforces communicate directly with the people that matter to solve problems more efficiently on-the-go. Currently operating in Australia, Rapporr’s inclusion on AEVI’s Global Marketplace will place it directly in front of global banks and acquirers, helping to position Rapporr as the communication platform of choice for mobile workers around the world. AEVI’s Marketplace, recently the recipient of the MPE Channel Award for innovation in payments, provides the perfect home for such a tool. The white-label B2B app store offers over 50 value-added apps and services from which banks and acquirers can choose, each designed to bring innovative solutions to merchants that go beyond payments. Peter Tippett, Co-Founder of Rapporr said “Rapporr is thrilled to be joining AEVI’s ecosystem. Our core offering not only provides a secure communication channel for banks and acquirers to broadcast messages across their entire merchant retail network, it also gives merchants their own communication platform. We look forward in growing this relationship together as we pursue these joint objectives.” AEVI is changing the face of payments with its open ecosystem of value-added apps and services.
