The following post is from Pivotal Payments about becoming a member of the i2Coalition.
Pivotal Payments is a leading provider of merchant services and global payment processing solutions to a variety of e-commerce, m-commerce and general card not present companies, including hosted services and domain registration providers. Its GlobalOne payment gateway and global acquiring platform provides real-time, worldwide connectivity, supporting over 60 major currencies, as well as alternative payments. Pivotal Payments is sensitive to the same threats, concerns, geospatial constraints and aspirations of others in the hosted services community and provides the technology that helps these organizations maximize revenue, reduce costs, remain secure and enhance operational efficiencies. As such, Pivotal Payments embraces the global outreach, educational and best practices efforts of the i2Coalition.
Jude Augusta, AVP of Global Acquiring, Hosting & Internet Services Sales as well as Co-Chairman of The i2Coalition’s Best Practices Committee states, “It’s exciting to be part of an active and passionate voice, helping defend our industry from well-intentioned but sometimes ill-planned governance, as well as provide shared wisdom from within our ranks to our colleagues and constituents on operational best-practices. We now have a voice in The United States Congress as well as with many other governments and captains of industry. We seek to share the thought-leadership of our peer-members to foster best practices for the common good in the good-stewardship and future of the Internet.”
Pivotal Payments will provide thought-leadership on practices revolving around electronic payments in new and challenging geographies, global currencies, alternative payment types, and customer service issues related to selling worldwide.
