Its in-store, online and omnichannel payment services help 250,000 merchants expand their business across borders and channels. Ingenico enables banks and acquirers to reduce the complexity of managing payments and differentiate their offer from the competition, notably with the world’s largest payment method portfolio.
“We ran a four-month RFP to equip our global estate of 88 sites with a managed SD-WAN solution. We investigated all major operators and vendors available and decided to partner with Masergy because of the maturity of its SD-WAN service offering, global implementation expertise and personalised technical support,” said Jean-Marc Voelckel, CIO, Ingenico Group. “Masergy offers us a unique fully managed solution for our business. With Masergy SD-WAN, we have lowered our total cost of operations.”

It’s proof that unlike many of our competitors, Masergy SD-WAN is ready and able to tackle the real, large-scale deployments that global enterprises, such as Ingenico, need.”
