Merchants today need to connect with their prospects and customers across multiple channels to survive and thrive. This “omnichannel” strategy requires meeting the customer in store, online, with mobile, with self-service and vending, perhaps even with mail order/telephone order options. And where merchants connect with customers, they must be ready to take payments on that channel, as requiring customers to order or pay through another channel risks losing the sale.
Merchant service providers (MSPs) recognize the importance of providing omnichannel technology solutions for merchants who support multiple touchpoints in a competitive marketplace.
Technology Driving Business
Tech-savvy consumers require merchants—and their MSPs—to offer omnichannel payment options, everything from in-store terminals, to mobile pay, eCommerce, self-service payments, vending, loyalty programs, and much more than traditional POS solutions. In addition, MSPs must provide value-added services and customer support for merchants to win and retain their market share.
Providing such a diverse and adaptive range of payment services can be challenging for MSPs. Coupled with the niche technologies and industry knowledge required to support specialized markets, MSPs need to be both forward-thinking and responsive to effectively serve ever-evolving merchant needs. And MSPs need technology partners similarly aligned to forward-thinking solutions and responsive customer support to bolster their solution sets.
