On 19th May 2014, The Reynolds and Reynolds Company entered into an agreement with Global Payments Inc. to offer POS (Point-of-Sale) electronic payment solutions for automotive dealerships. Reynolds is a leading provider of automobile dealership services, forms and software.
"Consumers today expect their experience with the dealership to mirror their experiences with other retailers," said Ron Lamb, president of Reynolds and Reynolds. "That expectation applies whether the consumer is browsing the dealer's website or paying for service at the dealership. To meet those expectations, dealers are looking for the tools that support a familiar shopping experience for consumers. Certainly, one of those tools is secure, efficient payment processing with the dealership."
- With this partnership, Reynolds will add the technology of Global Payments Inc. across Reynolds dealership management system (DMS) platforms as well as software solutions.
- This is in order to deliver cost effective, secure and efficient payment solutions in-store, online and on smartphones.
- Adding payment technology will also deliver several productivity benefits for dealership personnel, in addition to customer benefits, says the company.
"This partnership demonstrates the strength of Global Payments' distribution, combined with a differentiated service offering. Our ability to provide a breadth of integrated payment processing products and services is ideally suited to meet the needs of automotive dealerships, especially when combined with the strength of Reynolds' other technology offerings,” stated Eddie Myers, president of Global Payments' Integrated Solutions division, in a press release. “We continue to expand our technology channel across different vertical markets and segments," he added.
"As we looked for payment processing solution partners, we looked for companies that shared our vision for the consumer experience, security, and advanced technology. We found this in Global Payments, as well as a company with deep experience in their industry,” said Lamb, in the same release. “Adding this technology is one more step for Reynolds in helping dealers improve how their businesses operate and how they deliver a true retail experience to their customers."
