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 valuable exposure to the TSYS sales channel. By partnering on key joint marketing activities like webinars and collateral, ITG 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 expectations.”

As one of the newest members of TSYS Acquiring Solutions VAR Client Advisory Board, ITG was recently invited to attended their first Advisory Board meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona. IVR Technology and TSYS Acquiring Solutions add complementary benefits to each other’s services and products and they both look forward to what future endeavors lie ahead within the partnership.
