MEXICO CITY, Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Swiff, a trademark of SCCP Group, today announced its partnership with Affinitas, a payment solutions provider, to launch an innovative, secure Chip and PIN & Sign mPOS solution in Mexico. Swiff will provide its mobile payment expertise through its unique authentication technology and hardware for Affinitas' client ecosystem. Swiff's secure, white-label mPOS solution will launch under the Mikit brand for Affinitas Clients like Sí Vale, Afirme and First Data. Marking Swiff as a key mobile payments provider in Mexico, this partnership also signifies a mobile readiness in the region.
Swiff's innovative and unique technology gives the tools to roll out mobile strategies that enable bank-level secured, authenticated transactions.

SCCP's innovative mPOS platform integrated with a Chip and PIN & Sign solution will support acceptance and visibility of mPOS in Latin and Central America, beginning with Mexico. The Swiff mPOS solution will add value for both Affinitas and its merchants alike, streamlining the mPOS trend across the Americas.
"We are extremely proud to announce our partnership with Affinitas. Our ironclad security paired with Affinitas' key local network creates a flagship mPOS brand for the rest of the country and for mobile payments in Latin America.
