Computop, the global payment processor, today announced that it has won the coveted Merchant Payments Ecosystem (MPE) 2019 “Best Merchant Payment Implementation” award. The MPE Awards are the only European awards to celebrate and honour the achievements of companies across the spectrum of the European merchant payments ecosystem.

As such, Computop earned the accolade thanks to its role as the central payment service provider of international mobility service provider Sixt. The integration of Computop into the Sixt system landscape - which has a high number of transactions and the special process requirements of the car rental business - was only possible due to the extreme flexibility of the Computop Paygate payment platform. Thanks to the broad range of financial service providers that the payment platform offers, Sixt is now able to centrally control its various payment channels, including the POS terminals, and enable cross-channel transactions. The use of standard P2PE card terminals in the Sixt corporate countries simplifies its system landscape and also offers its customers maximum security.

Ralf Gladis, CEO and founder of Computop: "It’s a great honour to have been granted this prestigious award. It reflects all the challenging work undertaken on behalf of our team and the great results achieved in implementing a truly global omnichannel solution for Sixt that is exemplary for the future industry of mobility.”
