US-based Verve Financial Solutions, Inc has started an alliance with the leading UK card payment solution provider, NOMAD Software, to enable both organisations to collaborate on joint sales opportunities in North America, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Under the terms of the agreement, NOMAD Software will be extending its traditional horizons to include the American market. In conjunction with NOMAD, Verve will offer local sales and marketing support as well as implementation, consultancy and help desk services to financial organisations throughout the region.
As in Europe, the retail banking environment and card payment requirements of financial organisations in the Americas vary considerably. NOMAD and Verve recognise though that there a common need for high quality, proven open technology solutions backed up by local expertise.
Tony Kennea, President of Verve Financial Solutions, stated: "We are very excited to extend our product and service experience to NOMAD. We chose to work with NOMAD because of their excellent reputation with new technology implementation in Europe. In addition, the joint venture will allow Verve to take advantage of the 100+ years EFT industry experience in our company." John Yeomans, CEO of NOMAD Software, stated: "This is the first time we have pro-actively targeted the Americas and we needed the right partner to enable us to do that successfully. In Verve I believe we have found that partner, one which boasts extensive experience within the region and in-depth knowledge of the card payments market."
