TERHULPEN, Belgium, UTRECHT, The Netherlands and EREMBODEGEM, Belgium, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Ultimate convenience for customers and billers with One Click Pay and Maestro
From now on, email invoices can be paid in a single mouse click, with One Click Pay and Maestro. UnifiedPost, PaySquare and Paybox are launching this new, fast payment method in conjunction with MasterCard in the Belgium market. The ultimate convenience of One Click Pay facilitates faster invoice payment. Energy supplier Eni Belgium is the first to offer this new payment method to its customers.
One click and it's paid
One Click Pay eliminates the need to enter reference numbers, invoice amounts and credit accounts. Only the initial email invoice needs to be paid using the debit card and the bank's card reader.
In subsequent invoices the same card information is automatically populated and encrypted, allowing the customer to make future payments quickly and securely with a single mouse click. Customers remain in control of their budget at all times by checking and approving each e-bill. Invoices are stored in PDF format in an online archive for two years.
Facilitating faster payment
The tool is suited for companies with a large number of recurring invoices, for example energy, water and telecommunications providers. With One Click Pay, businesses can simplify the invoicing processes and offer their customers ultimate payment convenience, facilitating faster payment as a result.
Retail Director Jan Dobbenie of Eni: "One Click Pay is right in line with our motto, 'simplicity in energy'. As a supplier of electricity and natural gas, we want to make a difference by offering our customers simple and innovative solutions. This new payment method is a perfect example of this."
David Dechamps, General Manager Benelux of MasterCard: "We wanted to bring a fast and easy payment solution for today's consumer which would also result in a reduction in late payments for businesses. This tool is available on the web right now but will soon be accessible on a variety of devices, including the smartphone."

Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
