The long-term agreement benefits the bank’s customers with quicker access to new card features provided by TietoEVRY.

Payments in the Nordic region are set to undergo a significant digital transformation following the announcement of a three-way partnership between TietoEVRY, MYPINPAD and Surfboard Payments. In a matter of minutes, any merchant can now accept card payments and begin capturing customer data for loyalty and marketing purposes  via a simple app download on a mobile phone or tablet. Replacing traditional card terminals, the new solution simplifies payments for merchants and consumers.

The TietoEVRY, MYPINPAD and Surfboard partnership brings a newly developed payment solution to the Nordic market that enables merchants to securely accept payments via any Android or iOS device without the need for single purpose card terminals. The solution supports the consumer’s choice of payment methods, such as card, Swish, mobile payments, or invoices.

Where traditional payment terminals offer very limited opportunity for merchants to add value within the customer experience and do not provide data back to the merchant for marketing purposes, the white-label solution offered by Surfboard Payments opens up a world of possibilities to redefine the check-out process in store. Data can be captured and made available to the merchant in real time for greater customer targeting and marketing activities. Furthermore, the attention-grabbing customer screen facilitates loyalty points, rewards systems and offers, and multiple payment methods are offered to enhance the check-out experience.

As TietoEVRY is one of the largest payment processors in the Nordic region with links to all the main acquirers, the solution will be supported by a robust processing platform that ensures full availability and offers the most cost-effective and easily integrated services on the market.

“The payment industry is growing and changing extremely fast, driven by customer demands and innovative technologies. We are extremely proud to present the next step in the payment software evolution, enabling faster implementations and easier payments. This will benefit both small business owners and large retail chains, and not least their customers, who get a better and more alluring payment experience. We are happy to offer the new payment infrastructure to all our payment partners in the Nordics, in collaboration with Surfboard and MYPINPAD,” says Kevin Grönvall, Head of Card Acquiring at TietoEVRY.

“We started Surfboard Payments because we believe the paradigm shift for in-store payments is long overdue and will take place in the near future. We are very excited about the partnership and look forward to enabling Nordic merchants to offer better customer experiences for card-present payments in completely new ways,” says Christopher Lindfeldt, CEO and Founder of Surfboard Payments AB.

“Software is the future of payments, and the future is here - now. MYPINPAD’s software provides ground-breaking opportunities for merchants to innovate, and they can do so with confidence that it is also some of the most secure software in the world. Together with our partners, we’re thrilled to change the shape of payments for Nordic merchants,” says Justin Pike, Founder and Chairman of MYPINPAD.

The software is based on MYPINPAD’s “Tap on phone”, a contactless payment solution. MYPINPAD is the first company in the world to have both its CPoC and SPoC solutions certified under Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council (SSC), which ensures the offering is highly secure and globally accepted. The solution is available for acquirers, banks and partners to offer Nordic and international merchants and retailers.

TietoEVRY has launched its Diversity and Inclusion Charter, as a part of its new Sustainability game plan “Upgrading tomorrow”. The Diversity and Inclusion Charter sets ambitious goals for gender balance with an aim to reach equal representation of men and women in the company’s workforce by 2030. The company has outlined several actions to reach the goal considering a wide range of areas and plans to apply SHE Index criteria in all Nordic countries for reporting its progress. 

TietoEVRY has 2 March launched its first Sustainability game plan, called “Upgrading tomorrow”. As part of that plan, the company launches its Diversity & Inclusion Charter which sets the frame for the actions the company will take in the decade ahead aiming to ensure gender balance in its workforce. 

2021 03 01 125203“At TietoEVRY, we see the diversity of people, beyond of gender identification, ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, or age being equally valuable for creating a good and inspirational workplace. Embracing every individual creates a culture, where everyone can flourish and reach their full potential. We believe diverse perspectives are a prerequisite for successful innovation,” says Kimmo Alkio, President and CEO of TietoEVRY.

As a concrete target to advance equality, TietoEVRY has set an ambition to reach a 40% share of female professionals globally by 2026 – and 50% by 2030 – corresponding to 29% today. The company has outlined several actions to reach the goal considering a wide array of areas. 

“As women are under-represented in the ICT industry starting from the talent pipeline, this goal can be considered bold. But it shows our strong commitment to improving TietoEVRY’s gender balance over time. The actions we plan to take include setting measurable and transparent goals for gender balance per business area, identifying successors of both sexes for leadership positions and looking at our recruitment practices e.g. expanding the implementation of an anonymous gamified recruitment process. We also aim to increase development and mentoring initiatives for female leaders as well as awareness building across the organization including enforcing bias trainings. We begin this journey aiming high and believing we can make a difference as one of the largest tech employers in the Nordics,” says Trond Vinje, Chief Human Resources Officer at TietoEVRY. 

SHE Index and other local activities underway 

TietoEVRY has been working strategically to advance gender balance, for many years. The company plans to introduce SHE Index criteria to Nordics to report its progress. SHE Index measures stakeholders’ focus on diversity and inclusion in leadership and workforce, equal compensation and work-life balance. In Norway, TietoEVRY has been part of SHE Index for several years and the company ranks at 14 this year. In Sweden, TietoEVRY has this year reached the third position in the SHE Index, scoring high in areas such as the proportion of women in managerial positions. In Finland, TietoEVRY will partner with SHE Index and will be amongst the first companies to apply SHE Index this year. 

“The SHE Index provides a good set of indicators to strengthen transparency and promote gender equality in working life and we plan to adopt it globally. We challenge other companies to join the index,” continues Vinje. 

“SHE Index is a catalyst for stakeholders to drive focus on diversity and inclusion in leadership and workforce, including equal compensation and work-life balance. By joining the Index, companies have taken important steps in their journeys towards greater inclusion. As of now, companies in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark can join the index. Our plan is that during 2021, the SHE Index will be available in all European countries,” says Heidi Aven, Founder and CEO of the SHE Community.
