Kesko has a new growth strategy with increased focus on the customer experience related to mobile and online sales. Nets' ability to provide a strong expertise in payment and a proactive approach towards new payment methods is a key driver behind the new agreement.
The card settlement services offered by Nets are competitive and based on high availability and security. Nets was able to meet Kesko's requirements by offering competitive pricing, short settlement times, a gross settlement feature and a comprehensive customer service.
"Kesko expects our payment services to be reliable and cost efficient, but above all easy and smooth for consumers to use. We have made significant investments in the development of our merchant services," says Nets Account Director Jesse Partinen and continues, "Nets is a Nordic organization with a strong local foothold and long-term customer relationships. We want to further develop our cooperation with Kesko and offer them the best possible payment services. "
