Business description: Valista’s mission is to advance the next technology epoch by designing, constructing and delivering open and scalable payments and merchandizing software, accelerating digital content and premium services adoption for on-portal (walled-garden) and more open ecosystems (off-portal). Our global customers gain market share, increased revenue and competitive advantage by presenting more services to their users that can be paid for easily and conveniently at home, at work, at play, or on the move. These wireless and fixed line operators, ISPs, merchants and other enterprises can create new relationships with customers by facilitating a wider choice of purchase and payment options - increasing customer loyalty and ensuring a return on investment. Valista PaymentsPlus™ enables consumers to purchase various goods and services using any access channel and any payment instrument, for off-portal and on-portal content and services or a combination of both. It provides comprehensive, end-to-end micro and macro payment functionalities that span the entire payment lifecycle including transaction acquisition, real-time accounting, clearing and settlement and account administration.
