Pay by Touch Wins Prestigious IBM Beacon Award
IGS (IBM Global Services) Teaming Award for Independent Software Vendors (ISV)
Winner: Pay By Touch
Solution Name: Pay By Touch
Contact Name: Cherie Koster
With its IBM-hosted, no charge consumer payment service, Pay By Touch is using technology to work with a growing number of mid-sized supermarket retailers whose primary business challenge is finding a secure, scalable, cost-effective way to compete with larger chain store retailers.
Pay By Touch worked closely with IGS to launch the technology service from start to finish, from the installation of all point-of-sale equipment to helping set up new stores. In their decision, judges highlighted the fact that IGS is an essential component of the Pay By Touch on demand solution.
The judges also were impressed that the revenue opportunity and operating margins were strong, and that Pay By Touch has the ability to take the solution global.
