Information technology (IT) services company Wipro has won a multi-year cloud services contract from San Jose, California-based payments and commerce solutions firm Verifone.

The Bengaluru-based firm will develop new features, capabilities and interfaces for Verifone’s cloud services offerings to enable seamless and flexible transaction processing, according to a statement.

“Buying patterns have been disrupted by the pandemic and the payment industry is undergoing an overhaul, accelerated by the cashless economy and contactless payments. We look forward to supporting Verifone navigate this upward trend and bring enhanced value through our deep expertise in cloud engineering offerings,” Harmeet Chauhan, senior vice president, engineering and R&D services, Wipro, said.

Wipro will leverage its global engineering support team to accelerate time-to-market to enhance Verifone’s customer partnerships.

“Wipro services will complement our in-house talent, tools and expertise to ensure we remain the most trusted, secure and innovative payments company, particularly in terms of providing a flexible, all-encompassing omnichannel commerce solution,”said Bruce Gureck, executive vice president, global product and engineering, Verifone. 

Last month, Wipro won a five-year contract to provide software engineering services for Sunnyvale, California-based technology company ThoughtSpot. As part of the agreement, Wipro is expected to improve various components of ThoughtSpot’s search and analytics platform, and help the company scale its feature development efforts. 

Wipro has recently inked a strategic partnership with German software firm SNP (Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE) to build digital transformation solutions for its customers. 

The company announced a major rejig of service lines and markets last month to remodel itself with a new operating structure to get closer to its global customers. The changes will be effective January 1, 2021.
