TSYS (NYSE: TSS) announced today the launch of its new VAR Partner
Connect Program. The program focuses on TSYS’ extensive VAR partner
relationships and provides TSYS clients access to industry-leading
third-party payment processing applications across a range of
industries. By engaging actively with TSYS, VAR partners will now have
access to multiple avenues designed to give them visibility with TSYS
clients, as well as more individualized partner support and advanced
product and service notifications.
“We intend to be the most effective VAR channel in the industry, a goal
which builds on the TSYS vision of being the leading global payments
solutions provider to those we serve,” said Eric Barth, senior director,
product management, TSYS Merchant Services.
The TSYS VAR Partner Connect Program gives clients access to hundreds of
VAR partners utilizing a single Web-based touch point, which saves time
and energy in searching for the perfect payment application while also
providing VARs broad visibility across the payments industry. Since TSYS
has established processing relationships with most of the largest U.S.
acquirers, as a TSYS VAR Partner Connect member, payment applications
need only be certified to one platform in order to reach a large segment
of the acquiring population.
“Participation in the TSYS VAR Partner Connect program provides Precidia
valuable exposure to the TSYS sales channel,” said Deepak Wanner,
president and CEO of Precidia Technologies, Inc. “By partnering on key
joint marketing activities like webinars and collateral, Precidia
benefits from TSYS’ robust platform to educate merchants and in turn
provides TSYS with leading-edge integrated payment technology.”
“Soon after our initial involvement with the TSYS VAR Partner Connect
program, we produced two very promising partnership and joint marketing
opportunities, and we are excited that these opportunities will continue
to grow,” said Mike Byrne, CEO of IVR Technology Group. “The TSYS VAR
Partner Connect program staff has been very involved with us from the
beginning to ensure our success, and the experience has far exceeded our
