CHARGE Anywhere's mobile payments platform is designed for payment processors, banks, mobile network operators and merchants. It empowers smart phones and tablets with the functionality to become full function mPOS terminals which easily enable EMV smart card payments acceptance at the point of sale. As EMV deployments increase globally as a way to reduce counterfeit, lost and stolen card fraud as well as to protect cardholder data, CHARGE Anywhere's white labeled solutions have become mission critical for banks, telecommunication companies, payment aggregators and payment processors who are eager to embrace the technology to meet their clients' needs.
"CHARGE Anywhere provides expertise and valuable solutions to the rapidly growing market for mobile payment and acceptance. We are looking forward to the positive contributions that CHARGE Anywhere will make as a Leadership Council member and as part of the Advisory Board of Directors of the Smart Card Alliance Latino America," said Edgar Betts, Associate Director, Smart Card Alliance Latino America (SCALA).
"We are honored to have been selected as part of the Leadership Council of such a prestigious organization. The exponential growth of mobile payment issuance (M-Wallets) and acceptance (M-POS), together with the passing of the applicable interregional and intraregional liability shifts across the LAC region, make our specialized and tenured hands-on knowledge on the subject particularly timely for us to become a part of such a leading organization. At CHARGE Anywhere we have successfully implemented a full expansion of our white-label platform to accommodate the secure acceptance of EMV transactions via phones and tablets and, we are eager to share this knowledge with the array of industry giants that we now get to call 'team members' via the SCALA Alliance," said Oscar Munoz, Executive Vice President and & Senior Vice President of International Business Development at CHARGE Anywhere.
