Moneris, Canada’s largest payment processing firm, and software company LightSpeed announced on Thursday a partnership to provide Canada’s merchants with a new integrated mobile payment management solution available this spring.
“Our partnership with Moneris represents an important milestone in Canadian retail, which has been newly empowered by mobile, iPad and Mac solutions that engage customers in an interactive and re-energized shopping environment,” Dax Dasilva, the CEO of LightSpeed, said. “This is a great opportunity for our expanding Canadian client base to combine our powerful retail management platform with Moneris’ card processing solutions, creating an e-commerce enhanced in-store environment that engages today’s connected consumer. ”
Under the partnership, Moneris will integrate LightSpeed’s point-of-sale and retail management programs with its payment processing system, allowing LightSpeed customers to increase operating efficiency through the integration of back-office features like sales and order workflows and inventory management.
“Moneris has always provided industry-leading payment solutions for retail customers across North America,” Jeff Guthrie, the chief sales and marketing officer at Moneris, said. “By collaborating in this way, we can connect the power of our payment platform with LightSpeed’s innovative retail solutions to meet the emerging needs of a more dynamic, flexible marketplace.”
