The Austrian telecom market leader A1 and the full-service payment provider Concardis are now offering commercial customers comprehensive IT and payment services from a single source. “A1 Payment” comprises payment terminals, wide-ranging service packages such as NFC and a mobile wallet, debit and credit card acceptance as well as transaction processing for companies. SIM cards and data packages for mobile terminals are included. This new service saves A1 customers unnecessary workflows and administrative expenses.

Martin Resel, A1 CCO Enterprise, commented on the new partnership with Concardis: ‘Both the IT and telecoms industry and the payment sector are now driven by new digital technologies. So it was a logical step for us to generate synergies, expand our product range and offer our clients even more services. In Concardis we are delighted to have found an experienced partner to do so.’

Robert Hoffmann, CEO of Concardis Payment Group, adds: ‘With A1 we have gained a strong partner for continued growth in the Austrian market. Thanks to this partnership, our clients will now get all telecommunications and payment services from a single provider – with excellent, personalised local support.’
