MWC Partners have developed two new payment connectors for Planet, the global integrated payments leader. The connectors integrate Planet’s payment software with Cegid Retail Y2 POS.
Planet has a rich heritage in payment services, providing businesses in Retail, Hospitality, Food & Beverage and Parking sectors with fast and secure methods to process payments in person or online.
Planet approached MWC Partners, Cegid’s leading payment integration partner, in December 2020 to build a new payment connector to integrate the company’s cloud-based payment software with Cegid Retail Y2 POS to run wireless Pin Entry Devices (PEDs) in retail stores.
Dave Cull, Senior Merchants Solutions Manager at Planet, commented: “We knew of MWC Partners’ expertise in the payment integration marketplace and we were aware of the integrations they had already delivered for other leading Payment Service Providers (PSPs). We listened to their advice and felt sufficiently confident to commission MWC Partners to deliver payment connectors for both our wireless and fixed payment solutions. This would ensure a common approach to both connectors, an identical look and feel and the streamlining of ongoing support and maintenance.”
With an existing Cegid customer waiting to roll-out the new solution, both speed and quality of development were key. Work began in January 2021 to develop the two payment connectors. MWC Partners delivered both connectors in March, on time and within budget, ready for user acceptance testing and a planned go live date of next month.
Steve Watson is Chairman of MWC Partners: “We’re delighted to be able to add the integration developed for Planet to our stable of Cegid Y2 payment connectors. MWC Partners’ expertise in retail payment software positions us as the first port of call for any PSP who wants to integrate their payment software with Cegid Retail Y2, or indeed to any other POS solution.”
