Global Payments Inc. now calls its integrated solutions division OpenEdge.

The OpenEdge supports new technologies and improves software applications for developers and their customers, according to an Oct. 1 press release. OpenEdge serves more than 2,000 technology partners across 60 industry verticals in the United States and Canada. The platform supports out-of-scope payments, EMV, encryption and tokenization.

"Software developers integrating our payments technology into their applications will see an agile organization with the full worldwide support of Global Payments," Eddie Myers, president of the OpenEdge division, said in the release. "We, too, are technology developers and are deploying secure solutions for a rapidly changing payments environment."

The integrated solutions division was formed after Global Payments acquired PayPros in March and combined it with Accelerated Payment Technologies, which Global Payments purchased in 2012.
