New Company.
Payments Pioneer.

How can an organization bill itself as having developed some of the most innovative payments technology on the market when it just arrived on the scene? Well, OpenEdge is just the new name for two payment technology companies now on their third decade of developing integrated payment solutions. Accelerated Payment Technologies and PayPros – now combined as OpenEdge, the technology innovation division of Global Payments – helped invent integrated payment solutions, merging technology and payment processing. What will we think of next? Wait and see.

The OpenEdge Platform

  • Apple Pay, Mobile, Near Field Communication (NFC) and app-based payments
  • Cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Security (tokenization, point-to-point encryption, signature capture, EMV)
  • Multi-platform software support (Windows Client, Linux, MacOS, APIs, Open Source Plugins, Mobile SDK, Cloud)
