THE NETHERLANDS | Payment solutions and web shop software specialist CCV acquires Belgian software developer J4S. Whereas CCV offers payment solutions predominantly for physical shops, J4S specialises in software solutions for Internet payments and customer card systems. The acquisition makes CCV a significant Payment Service Provider targeting the Dutch, Belgian, German and Swiss ecommerce market.
Following its earlier takeover of web shop provider Biedmeer in March this year, this acquisition is another important step by CCV towards fulfilling its ambition of offering omni-channel solutions to the European market.
Webshop and Payment Solution
The acquisition of J4S is CCV’s response to the constantly changing payment behaviour of consumers. CCV will offer its customers a transparent portal that includes not only a web shop solution and payment solutions but also allows them to manage discount coupons, gift cards and loyalty programmes.
Provide PSP services in 4 markets
The integrated off-line and on-line solutions will be rolled out across the entire operating spectrum of CCV Group and cover the Dutch, Belgian, German and Swiss markets. The first new products from the cooperation between CCV and J4S are expected at year-end 2015.
Enny van de Velden, Managing Director of CCV Group, said: "The shop and payment landscape is changing all the time and rapidly. We are striving to simplify the increasing complexity for the merchant. Through the acquisition of J4S, CCV has obtained the missing link to complete the online sales chain. It allows us to offer a turnkey solution for an integrated off-line and on-line approach to customers. It means that CCV now holds all ingredients for fulfilling its omni-channel ambition."
"Our ambition is to use our technical expertise to strengthen and materialise CCV’s vision of e-commerce and m-commerce. Among other things we can bring together the off-line and on-line worlds and ultimately create the ultimate shopping experience for the consumer.", added Joury Gokel, General Manager of J4S.
