First Data and KeyBank team up for payments and merchant services
The partnership will allow KeyBank to offer First Data’s entire portfolio of business tools, including the Clover platform which lets business owners accept payments, manage inventory, track sales, and access analytics and rewards programmes.
Chris Foskett, executive vice-president, head of corporate and business development, First Data, says the deal “strengthens” its distribution network.
As part of this agreement, KeyBank will maintain its direct relationship to their clients while offering First Data’s solutions. KeyBank customers will be able to access the full suite, including Clover Station, Clover Mobile, Clover Mini, and Clover Go, as well as the Clover App Market.
In addition, KeyBank clients will have access to TransArmor, First Data’s security offering, gift solutions and loyalty tools. They will also be able to use First Data’s developer portal, used by software developers to integrate to the First Data platform and incorporate commerce into solutions developed for clients.
