SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2012) - Spindle, Inc., (OTCBB: SPDL), a leading provider of mobile payments solutions, has announced that it has been selected to provide the foundational payments technology for SLIDE SAFE LLC (SLIDE), a payment platform offered by a consortium comprised of Anadyne Enterprises of Florida and Signature Card Services of Los Angeles, California. SLIDE expects to introduce its mobile payments product to select MetroPCS distributors in metropolitan Philadelphia and Fort Lauderdale later this month, offering the SLIDE branded service to business customers.
"We are delighted that Spindle has been selected as the enabling partner for SLIDE," said Bill Clark, president of Spindle. "The principals behind this organization have had tremendous success in introducing card payment solutions with a number of consumer-facing brands, such as Subway restaurants' 'Swipe-N-Go' program. SLIDE's plan to deliver a complete off-the-shelf mobile payments solution will give MetroPCS distributors a robust payments solution that will be particularly appealing to businesses looking to accept card payments through mobile devices."
Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Spindle offers a robust platform that supports consumer and merchant engagement services including payment, couponing, loyalty, and advertising in a secure end-to-end SaaS platform. The company's platform, which is white-labeled by financial institutions, mobile operators, and other organizations, is used to facilitate transactions among individuals and businesses. Spindle offers a technology-agnostic platform that manages customer boarding, risk and underwriting, and transaction processing.
As part of the agreement, Spindle will provide its secure payments infrastructure for the SLIDE offering. Through Spindle's Payment Services Provider (PSP) platform, merchants are underwritten and boarded in a simple one-step process. The mobile merchant is able to use their service upon leaving the MetroPCS store, and has full access to SLIDE's comprehensive customer support.
"The SLIDE-Spindle venture will allow our company to leverage its established card processing solutions into the rapidly emerging market of mobile payments," said Cliff Teston, a co-founder of SLIDE and chief executive officer of Signature Card Services, an industry-leading provider of payment processing services since 1997.
"We expect to deliver one of the best mobile acquiring products in the market," said Edward Slominski, co-founder of SLIDE and managing director of Anadyne Enterprises. "Our partnership with Spindle enabled us to quickly deliver a robust and secure mobile payment service under the SLIDE brand to our customers. As a result, we anticipate that our customers will have first-to-market advantage among their peers in this fast evolving mobile commerce market. By adding Anadyne's proven program management and high touch service elements, we believe we can provide businesses with a seamless, secure, and reliable method to get paid through their mobile device."
