Our promise stands on a foundation of best-in-class payments expertise - not a passing moment of frenzy and excitement. We started as a pioneer in cashless payment, securing checks and credit cards through digitization. One of our first inventions was the "Verification Phone," an electronic method that protects merchants from fraudulent checks. Our brand name and problem-solving DNA emerges from that initial innovation. We ended up in all corners of the world, because no merchant could prosper without secure payments. We started at point-of-sale and became the world's most trusted payment expert with best-in-class hardware.
Today, we've pivoted our focus to software applications - payments are now a beginning, not an end - but our bedrock remains the same: Global trust and universal availability. We earn trust from our partners through our proven ability to enable more than 10 billion secure transactions a year - from the largest global big boxes, the neighborhood bar and the corner street vendor. Simplifying the complex and providing merchants a customer journey that is future-proof is our passion. Engineered from the inside, we make omnichannel commerce simple for merchants, delivering a consistent brand experience on a unified digital platform. This new direction comes from a new global vision and better customer-driven processes.
