AT&T and Vantiv Solutions Announce New Mobile Payments Solutions for Businesses of All Sizes

AT&T and Vantiv, Inc., a provider of payment processing services and related technology solutions, have announced the availability of new payment products that deliver highly secure, integrated and speedy on-the-spot mobile transactions to businesses of all sizes.

Mobile payments represent a market opportunity with significant upside as businesses implement new, more integrated ways to manage their operations and sell to customers. In fact, Forrester Research projects that U.S. mobile payments will reach $90 billion in 2017, representing a 48 percent compound annual growth rate from the $12.8 billion spent in 2012.

The new solution supports key emerging sales and payment trends that include:

  • Field service providers such as plumbers and heating and cooling technicians accepting card payments at customer homes, instead of calling in payments over the phone or mailing bills later.
  • Restaurant owners offering a tablet-based, table-side payment option during their busy hours to speed table turnover.
  • Retailers capturing and processing customers’ email addresses upon payment and running email marketing campaigns to achieve increased customer traffic.

“Mobile devices and platforms continue to revolutionize the business of selling,” said Mike Troiano, Vice President, Advance Mobility Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. “Vantiv mobile payment solutions from AT&T can empower businesses of all sizes to seize the mobility opportunity. This is the latest example of AT&T’s commitment to deliver the most advanced mobile ecosystem in the industry for our customers.”
