Berner Group Chooses Wirecard for E-Commerce Processing

Jan. 31, 2011

The Berner Group, a German direct sales company specializing in small components for use in the construction and automotive industries, has chosen Wirecard AG to process payments at its German online store. Eventually, customers in 14 countries will be able to order Berner Group products via the Internet. Munich-based Wirecard will provide processing, risk management and credit-card acceptance for e-commerce ordering processes. “After extensive investigations, we opted for a single-source solution,” said Alexander Emmert, head of international alternative distribution channels at Berner. “This is because our international orientation calls for convenient and transparent contractual structures. What was also important for us was to work with a service provider who is able to provide optimum support for our strategic objective of boosting profitability. By working with Wirecard, we are able to simplify our back-office processes substantially, thus reducing time requirements and cutting costs.”
