Payment Processing, Incorporated (PPI), the industry leader in integrated transaction processing, today announced a partnership with Verrus, a leading mobile commerce provider to offer integrated credit card payment processing for pay by cell phone parking service.
"PPI provides a comprehensive solution that allows us to easily integrate real time payment processing into our applications," says Neil Podmore of Verrus. "By having one resource that provides technology, merchant account services and extensive support, we're able to streamline our operations and provide our customers with a complete solution."
Verrus pioneered the development of pay by phone parking in North America, allowing customers to use their credit cards to pay for both on street and off street parking--without using coins in a meter or kiosk. Instead, drivers call or send a text message to a local number posted on the meter or parking space, provide the meter or parking space number and select the anticipated minutes they require. There is no need to use cash, and drivers have the option to receive a parking expiration reminder via text message and a receipt via email. A driver who is running late can call in again to add more time.
Using the PPI/Verrus solution, Verrus customers, such as the City of Vancouver, Douglas Parking and Impark, have a complete solution for integrated credit card processing for pay by phone parking, including:
Superior payment processing technology using PPI's fast and secure PPI PayMover gateway
Unlimited 24/7/365 free technical and administrative support for both transaction and merchant account issues
Configuration, testing and training
Competitive pricing for merchant accounts
"Integrated payment processing for the parking meter industry continues to be a growing opportunity for PPI and we are excited to work with Verrus," says Peter Smith, director of client partner development at PPI. "By offering a comprehensive solution we are able to offer partners, such as Verrus, the ability to turn to one partner for all aspects of their integrated payment processing needs."
