Online Customer Centre 
Customers Can Access Pre-Qualified Business Apps and Educational
LONDON -- (Marketwired) -- 04/22/13 --  Global Payments in the UK,
formerly HSBC Merchant Services, has launched a new website providing
their customers with a secure Customer Centre and a new App Store
that gives access to pre-qualified technology tools, educational
resources and free trials, each of which is designed to make doing
business easier and more cost effective.  
The App Store has been developed in collaboration with SaaS Markets,
a leading business app store platform provider. 
Customers of Global Payments in the UK can use the App Store to
easily access valuable tools to help them run their business
operations. The apps allow customers to automate their businesses and
to reduce the cost of buying and deploying hardware and software. 
"Global Payments is committed to providing its customers with the
resources they need to be successful," said Chris Davies, Managing
Director of Global Payments. "This App Store within the Customer
Centre provides cost-effective tools and applications that help
customers improve and streamline operations, more easily manage
finances, and ultimately helps boost top and bottom-line results."  
Not only does the App Store provide Global Payments' customers with a
wide variety of business and educational tools, but customers can
also take advantage of "try-before-they-buy" free trials. The App
Store's cloud-based business applications are all scalable,
customisable and easily accessible to our customers and include:
Accounting and Finance; Data Management; IT; Sales Security; Website
and Content Management. 
SaaS Markets is extremely selective, running each potential
application through a rigorous acceptance process. "Our process is so
rigorous that only 18% of apps actually make it into the app store,"
said Ferdi Roberts, founder and CEO of SaaS Markets. "Our process and
platform give Global Payments customers confidence that they will
easily find the right app for their business, which will deliver the
features, functionality and performance they need to be successful."
