With the Mobile Payments industry expected to hit the trillions before the end of the decade, Aramor Payments has made the strategic decision to extend its portfolio of services to include mobile payment solutions for Canadian businesses. To make this change they brought in a seasoned professional from the mobile industry. Lyndon Burrell has joined the Aramor team as SVP of Canadian Payments and CEO Maxwell Morgan couldn’t be more pleased. “Lyndon is an experienced marketing professional. He comes to us from Research In Motion – BlackBerry where he spent six years as a Sr. Marketing Manger in its Business Solutions Group.
Mr. Burrell brings to us a keen understanding and passion for mobile business solutions to compliment our electronic payments expertise. In addition to managing the Canadian portion of Aramor’s electronic payments business, Lyndon’s major focus will be on developing sales and marketing efforts around Canadian Mobile Payments solutions for the iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry and Android platforms.”
With the mobile market booming in Canada, Lyndon shares in Maxwell’s enthusiasm regarding this new opportunity, “When I was approached with the opportunity to join one of Canada’s premier boutique electronic payment services providers and develop a mobile payments business, I couldn’t look away. The cool factor for smartphones and tablets in business is undeniable! However, the big question facing many business owners is, how do I make smartphones and tablets work for me? Businesses not only want to save money with mobile technologies, they want to make money.
Aramor Payments has the answer for Canadian businesses with a simple, secure, low cost credit card payment processing solution for the iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry platforms with support for Android coming soon. Accepting credit card payments on the iPhone has been a runaway success for tens of thousands of businesses in the United States. Now Canadian businesses can do it too!”
For those unfamiliar with the mobile payments platform, this innovative technology allows Canadian merchants to download a free app to their smartphones and tablets for use as Point Of Sale (POS) terminals. This app along with the attachable “card swiper” allows merchants to swipe and accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards as payment from their customers. Mobile business and service providers are now able to capitalize on all sales opportunities regardless of location. The mobile payment solution from Aramor Payments literally allows businesses to process payments, accept gratuities and issue refunds virtually anytime, anywhere. (Smartphone or tablet requires working data connection.)
