The payment solution was chosen in an open tender over a number of payment solutions and it will facilitate payments up to 1,000 public offices, including all municipalities, Finnish Transport Safety Agency Trafi and Finnish Patent and Registration Office PRH among other authorities.
"This is the biggest public sector related bid regarding e-commerce payment systems in Northern Europe and all Finnish citizens with bank account or payment card are potential users of the system," says Jukka Sorvali, Project Manager at the State Treasury. "The State of Finland is investing heavily in the digitalisation of its services and a shared integrated solution related to payments is one good example of it, " continues Jukka Sorvali.
"Winning the bid to provide online payment system to the State Treasury of Finland is a great continuity to our strong tradition of serving both businesses and public sector with latest technology and payment innovations in Finland. Together with Paytrail we can offer customers all online payment methods like payment cards, online-banking, account payments etc." says Heikki Kapanen, Country Manager of Nets in Finland.
"We look forward to the cooperation with the State Treasury. Competition is hard in this market and our successful bid confirms that we have a very good and secure product and that we have the right pricing," says Markus Laurio, CEO of Paytrail.
