Antigua’s Global Processing Centre (GPC) has migrated to TranzAxis, an open development payments platform provided by Compass Plus.
The project was implemented in conjunction with Worldwide Financial Systems Solutions (WFSS), Compass Plus’ distributor in the Latin American and Caribbean region.
TranzAxis will endow GPC with flexibility and control to offer more customer-centric support and its Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) will facilitate alternative payments in the region.
The development toolbox that is provided with TranzAxis will help GPC to fulfill its strategic vision that includes catering to traditional payment processing needs, whilst enabling financial institutions, vendors, and end-users to participate in emerging alternative payments; including mobile and NFC payments, e-wallets and e-government solutions.
Justin Stuart-Young, COO of GPC, said: "From the moment I saw TranzAxis, I was sure that this was the solution we needed. In our region, systems are disjointed and the use of legacy architecture is prevalent, which can make integration with banks and third party systems more difficult.
"The Service Oriented Architecture of TranzAxis is invaluable as it gives us the flexibility we need to reassure our customers and third parties that integration will not be a problem, and I have yet to be proven wrong."
