ieDigital completes digital payments project with Ikano

ieDigital announces successful completion of an update to retail finance and loyalty specialist Ikano’s digital marketing and finserv platform.

New digital payments and marketing portal successfully rolled out at Ikano partner businesses New Look and IKEA

London, 24 January 2013 – ieDigital, a leading provider of digital money software, today announces it has successfully completed a project to update retail finance and loyalty specialist Ikano’s digital marketing and financial services platform in the UK. The move enables Ikano to provide customer-led payments solutions to some of the country’s biggest retailers through a market leading online platform.

Through integrating Intelligent Environments’ solution with its back office systems, Ikano is now able to provide customers of leading brands such as New Look and IKEA with a full summary of their storecard accounts. More than 18,000 storecard holders have already signed-up to the system since mid-November 2012. Intelligent Environments was chosen to partner with Ikano for the project because of the company’s status as a leading provider of digital money solutions, its UK regulatory and market knowledge, and strong existing client list.

The solution has been so successful to date that Ikano expects to roll it out to all of its storecard portfolios this year.

Via the new platform, New Look and IKEA storecard holders can derive immediate benefits such as being able to view their transactions 24/7, update their personal details, and make payments online through the Paypoint payment portal at their convenience. Notifications can be sent directly to storecard account holders, reminding them of a monthly finance payment and providing them with a link to the relevant payment page. These services help consumers to manage their finances more effectively and conveniently, at the moment of need.
