We are excited to announce that we have integrated our Alpha Anywhere development environment with Worldpay, a leading global payment provider, to speed the creation of payment-enabled mobile business apps.
By combining Alpha Anywhere, a unique mobile and web app development environment featuring offline capability, with Worldpay’s payment processing expertise, enterprises can now easily add premium payment processing services to mobile and web applications.
"Forrester Research recently reported that, ‘over the next five years, US mobile payments will grow to $142 billion,’"1 said Richard Rabins, Alpha Software Corporation CEO. "As enterprises seek to meet customers’ demand for payment-enabled apps, they will be challenged to quickly deploy apps while maintaining robust security. As we continue to add innovative capabilities to the Alpha Anywhere environment, this combination of products will enable our customers to take advantage of the mobile payments revolution."
Alpha Anywhere developers can now leverage Worldpay’s fast and simple set up to accept payments anywhere. Worldpay adds a wealth of global payments experience, with an average of 9.4 million transactions daily in the US alone. Through the Worldpay relationship, Alpha will support the numerous payment types provided by Worldpay."There is a real opportunity for enterprises today to offer robust, payment-enabled apps to their constituents, however many are challenged with quickly and easily developing and deploying these apps," said Hunter Menton, Vice President, Worldpay. "By partnering with Alpha, an application development market leader, together we can help enterprises expand their mobile apps ecosystem and simplify mobile payments."
Case Study: athleticloudCloudworks Global recently released a robust, scalable payment-enabled application using the Alpha/Worldpay API. The athleticloud app from Cloudworks Global serves as a mobile information hub for high school athletic directors, coaches, athletes and parents. It was built, tested and deployed dramatically faster than typical app development timeframes that Cloudworks Global had previously experienced and at significantly lower cost than alternate approaches. The Alpha Anywhere platform flexibility allowed Cloudworks Global to quickly update the app to meet requirements, while seamless integration with Worldpay saved significant development time. The application quickly expanded from high school athletics into a complete solution for anyone within a school system that needs to manage resources, scheduling and payments.
