GlobeSet Signs Turkish IT Integrator as OEM Partner

GlobeSet Inc., a provider of SET Secure Electronic Transaction software for OEM solutions, signed a partnership agreement with Info Otomasyon & Entegrasyon A.S. of Turkey to license the GlobeSet Payment System.

The GlobeSet Payment System is a SET solution that allows consumers, merchants and financial institutions to conduct secure payment card transactions over the Internet.

The deal with Info provides the company with an entry into the Turkish IT, financial and retail markets. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.

Since 1981 Info has been a systems integrator in the Turkish IT marketplace, completing large-scale electronic commerce and banking projects for customers in the finance, telecommunications and public sectors.

A full SET e-commerce implementation with Yapi ve Kredi Bank is already complete. Info will integrate GlobeSet products into its customer's existing payment infrastructure. Istanbul-based Info also offers application development and 24x7 support services.

"Partnering with an extensive, talented and experienced organization such as Info gives GlobeSet the advantage we need to make significant progress in the Turkish marketplace," said Dennis Jolly, vice president, sales, marketing and operations of GlobeSet.

"There is tremendous interest in the Turkish marketplace for electronic commerce, and Turkish financial institutions are among the first in the world to implement new technologies," said Aydin Ersoz, the general manager of Info Otomasyon. "I believe that GlobeSet's product range, combined with Info's systems integration capabilities, will play a significant role in developing the infrastructure for e-commerce in Turkey."
