Online transactions more reliable and secure thanks to Payvision and TelecityGroup

A forecast 75 million credit and debit card transactions will benefit from a fully redundant infrastructure


Amsterdam, 11 August 2010: Payvision, the international supplier of a comprehensive suite of credit / debit card payment solutions, has selected TelecityGroup as its primary data centre supplier to ensure a fully redundant infrastructure and guarantee no loss of service to its customers. Payvision will outsource its customer infrastructure and back-office systems to TelecityGroup’s data centre, benefiting from the secure, reliable and connected environment to process a forecast 75 million transactions in 2010.

Payvision was founded in 2001, with the aim of developing payment solutions for e-commerce businesses and since 2004 has focused specifically on the credit card market. Payvision prides itself on being the international market leader for multi-currency transactions, where web retailers in 40 countries – including the US, Japan, Korea, Australia and the Netherlands – can process payments in 150 different currencies. It now has offices in Amsterdam, Madrid, New York, Boston and Singapore.

Following in the footsteps of other credit card companies, Payvision decided to outsource its infrastructure to ensure redundancy. Due to the complexity of Payvision's services, it was essential the data centre met strict criteria including PCI DSS accreditation and enough capacity for high-density equipment. It selected TelecityGroup not only because it met these criteria, but due to its industry reputation as reliable and pro-active supplier, and the Dutch sales and customer teams’ professionalism. Following the first implementation TelecityGroup exceeded expectations, prompting Payvision’s decision to switch to TelecityGroup as its primary data centre.

Gijs op de Weegh, Payvision's CFO said: "In the e-commerce market reliability and availability of services are crucial. Payment options that don’t function will immediately cost web retailers customers and returns. So as a service provider to e-commerce companies, we can't permit ourselves any downtime at all. Also, e-commerce is developing so rapidly that we can only hold on to our leading role when we are supported by a party that also meticulously follows these developments and allows us to react to them fast. TelecityGroup is the right company for us."

Alexandra Schless, General Director of TelecityGroup Netherlands: "As a data centre it is our mission to guarantee our customers’ infrastructure is optimally available by making sure we have the right cooling systems, security and connectivity. To this end we are always investing in technological innovation, in securing the procedures with standards such as PCI DSS and in actively exchanging ideas with our customers and prospects. So it gives us great pleasure that a company such as Payvision, with its important role in international e-commerce, has selected us based on exactly these criteria."
