BRISBANE, Australia, May 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tritium DCFC Limited (“Tritium”) (Nasdaq: DCFC), a global developer and manufacturer of direct current (“DC”) fast chargers for electric vehicles (“EVs”), has partnered with Transaction Network Services (“TNS”), a leading payment infrastructure-as-a-service provider, to bolster the point-of-charge payment options that Tritium provides to customers.
Through this partnership, Tritium will receive access to payment hardware manufactured by Ingenico, a payment industry leader for more than 30 years and a global leader in seamless payment solutions, as part of the TNS UnattendedPayments solution. TNS UnattendedPayments, which is part of the TNS acceptance product portfolio (formerly known as ADVAM), is an end-to-end payments solution that enables self-service cashless payment acceptance, designed to help increase operational efficiency. The solution consists of a combination of high performing payment terminals, a feature-rich administration portal enabling comprehensive reporting and administration management, and secure processing via the TNS Gateway – the company’s sophisticated payment processing engine.
“We’re proud to be partnering with Tritium to bring our leading payment options to their award-winning DC fast chargers,” said John Tait, Global Managing Director – Payments Market at TNS. “Our businesses have a strong focus on customer success, and we’re excited to provide Tritium, and their customers, with end-to-end solutions offering a wide range of ways to pay easily, quickly and securely.”
The TNS-provided payment solutions are expected to be available to Tritium customers in 40 countries, expanding to 80 total countries for which Tritium can supply charger-integrated payment options. TNS will supply the new Ingenico Self Series range as part of their UnattendedPayments solution – Self 5000 in the United States, Self 4000 in the United Kingdom and Self 2000 in other countries. These premium terminals will provide advanced and secure payment technology – like color touch screens and cameras for QR code payments – will accept contactless and digital wallet payments, and will even include support for wearable technologies like Apple Watch and Samsung Watch. The Self 4000 includes PIN capability, making it an ideal solution to meet the PSD2 European regulation.
“Flexibility is a core philosophy of Tritium’s technology, and this partnership with TNS allows us to provide additional options and flexibility to our customers,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. “Drivers want convenient solutions when they recharge, from the location of the charging site to the full user experience. TNS’ solutions will help Tritium to continue to enhance the superior driver experience we’re known for.”
Tritium expects to offer the Ingenico Self 2000, 4000 and 5000 payment terminals to customers in calendar year 2022.
