First Data’s Universal Commerce (uCom) Recognized as Best Mobile Solution at CNP Expo

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

First Data (FDC), a global leader in commerce-enabling technology and solutions, was presented with the CNP Award for Best Mobile Solution at the CNP Expo, held May 23 in San Francisco. The company was recognized for its work on First Data’s Universal Commerce (uCom) technology that enables merchants to connect the “digital to the physical” via a single integration that supports in-app payments, unparalleled security, and loyalty from a connected device.

“First Data is proud to accept the CNP Award for our uCom solution, a product that is helping merchants bring their digital strategy to life through connected experiences,” said Nandan Sheth, Head of Global Digital Commerce at First Data. “Whether ordering ahead at your favorite restaurant, interacting with retailers through the dashboard of a car, or providing an in-app payment experience to sports fans, uCom is revolutionizing the ways in which consumers pay for goods.”

First Data’s uCom enables commerce to follow consumers across omni-channel devices, including mobile phones, connected cars, and IoT devices. By providing connectivity to otherwise disparate merchants – such as automakers and gas stations, or restaurants and sports venues – uCom effectively bridges the gap between digital and brick-and-mortar commerce, powering a frictionless consumer experience while allowing businesses to maximize their footprint in the digital world.

First Data’s uCom safely and securely enables payments, through any channel, and is compatible with a wide array of payment methods. The solution also enables frictionless payment experiences like order-ahead, pay-at-the-table, pay-at-pump, scan and go, delivery and pickup, in-car ordering, loyalty payments, and more.

Held each year, the CNP Awards are the only awards honoring the companies, programs and solutions that have distinguished themselves in the card not present space throughout the year.
