NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–First
Data (NYSE: FDC), a global leader in commerce-enabling technology
and solutions, was presented with the CNP Award for Best Mobile Solution
at the CNP Expo, held May 23 in San Francisco. The company was
recognized for its work on First Data’s Universal Commerce (uCom)
technology that enables merchants to connect the “digital to the
physical” via a single integration that supports in-app payments,
unparalleled security, and loyalty from a connected device.
“First Data is proud to accept the CNP Award for our uCom solution, a
product that is helping merchants bring their digital strategy to life
through connected experiences,” said Nandan Sheth, Head of Global
Digital Commerce at First Data. “Whether ordering ahead at your favorite
restaurant, interacting with retailers through the dashboard of a car,
or providing an in-app payment experience to sports fans, uCom is
revolutionizing the ways in which consumers pay for goods.”
First Data’s uCom enables commerce to follow consumers across
omni-channel devices, including mobile phones, connected cars, and IoT
devices. By providing connectivity to otherwise disparate merchants –
such as automakers and gas stations, or restaurants and sports venues –
uCom effectively bridges the gap between digital and brick-and-mortar
commerce, powering a frictionless consumer experience while allowing
businesses to maximize their footprint in the digital world.
First Data’s uCom safely and securely enables payments, through any
channel, and is compatible with a wide array of payment methods. The
solution also enables frictionless payment experiences like order-ahead,
pay-at-the-table, pay-at-pump, scan and go, delivery and pickup, in-car
ordering, loyalty payments, and more.
Held each year, the CNP Awards are the only awards honoring the
companies, programs and solutions that have distinguished themselves in
the card not present space throughout the year.
