SINGAPORE, Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SCCP Group, the holding company of Swiff end-to-end solutions in mobile payments, is launching Swiff Partner Program, which aims to bring a comprehensive suite of m-commerce solutions under one roof. In linking up with key players in the industry, the Swiff Partner Program will accelerate the distribution and use of mobile payment solutions.
The Swiff Partner Program is set to benefit numerous players in the payment ecosystem. For banks, it presents an opportunity to upsell industry specific expertise and applications as a value-added service to their merchant community and use solution partners as a channel through which new merchants can be acquired. Solution partners can incorporate the consolidated suite of Swiff solutions (such as mPOS and mWallet) into their own apps and solutions and upsell industry specific applications to their merchant community. They will also benefit from access to SCCP Group's critical mass of acquirers and merchants and will receive support and training to integrate their products with the Swiff solutions suite. For merchants, the Program affords considerable efficiency improvements by offering industry specific applications – that can be either 'off-the-shelf' or bespoke – that are pre-integrated with the Swiff suite of products. The Swiff Partner Program, therefore represents a real game-changing proposition to merchants allowing them to:
- provide improved, more personal, customer service,
- reduce the security risk and the high cost of handling cash,
- inexpensively provide a greater number of payment points; reducing retail queue times,
- provide automated real time inventory management,
- increase sales conversion rates by accepting card payments when a potential customer has insufficient cash.
SCCP is partnered with a wide range of solution providers from mobile device manufacturers to vertical solution providers, telcos, and SI/development shops that specialize in delivering custom solutions tailored to the merchant's specific requirements. For example:
- Samsung provides a wide assortment of their latest smart devices, certified and bundled with the Swiff product suite;
- Eleos, with their Octopus Mobile POS Solution integrated with Swiff Pay, enables retail and food/beverage merchants to realize significant value from a single mobile solution that supports the sales process from initial customer engagement to fulfilment; and
- Tabsquare, with their cloud-based mobile solution, provides restaurants and hotels with an intuitive, seamless interface to manage orders, reservations, and payments.
In addition, the Swiff Partner Program includes partners in transportation and logistics and those that span multiple industries.
"Leveraging on our unique track-record of more than 20 banks across Asia, Russia and CIS, Middle-East and the US, we trust that our initiative, to share the collective experience and solutions from our partner ecosystem, will bring significant value to our customers globally," comments Jerome Clé, SCCP Group's CEO. Adding, "Swiff Partner Program along with Swiff Advisory, the professional services we have packaged for our customers to tailor their merchant acquisition programs, are at the core of SCCP Group's strategy to bring more added value to its customers."
"Integrating SCCP's robust payment technology with our best in class smart devices is a powerful combination that has enabled merchants regardless of segments and industries to realize the benefits and efficiencies of conducting business on the go," says Craig Gledhill, Vice President Enterprise Business, Southeast Asia and ANZ, for Samsung Electronics.
SCCP Group is drawing on its strengths and those of its partners to offer a mutually beneficial program, which will bring value to each player in the payment ecosystem. For participating solution partners SCCP provides dedicated support and education as well as a complete set of documentation to integrate their applications with the Swiff product suite.
