"Businesses operating the terminals will automatically gain access to Provenco's advanced payments technology and customer services."
American Express' VP Merchant Services, Membership Awards and Engagements in New Zealand, Stephen Powell, said: “The terminal business is becoming more specialised with the introduction of the latest security standards. Having a technology partner like Provenco made a lot of sense for us."
