Elavon, a provider of payments solutions, has unveiled a new division at its Atlanta headquarters, designed to focus on mobile solutions for both large and small merchants. For larger merchants, new solutions developed at the mobile innovation center will be compatible with Elavon’s complete set of payments and security solutions. Capabilities for smaller merchants will include a variety of options for accepting payments.
“Our focus will be on new technologies that enable merchants to accept payments via mobile devices while also ensuring the ease of use and safety of the transaction from the customer’s perspective,” said Marianne Johnson, EVP of Global Product and Innovation for Elavon. “Payments are moving closer to the concept of the mobile wallet housed on a smartphone or other device.”
