ealex was founded in 2000 by entrepreneur Colm Lyon and has offices in London and Dublin looking after over 3,500 clients across Europe including The AA, Virgin Atlantic, Vodafone and Aer Lingus as well as a number of major online gaming sites including PartyPoker.com.
Dublin-based CryptoLogic revealed that it needed to expand its payment processing capabilities as a result of continued growth and selected Realex to provide increased functionality and additional capacity. The deal will see Realex supply payment processing for CryptoLogic across a variety of currencies, regions and card types, acting as a gateway service for its card acquiring partners.
“Although we had a very tight deadline and an extensive wish list of specific requirements, Realex was able to implement the solution quickly and efficiently, meeting our demands in the timeframe required,” said Kieron Nolan, Director Of Treasury for CryptoLogic.
“As well as providing an impressive cost-effective solution, Realex offered a high level of support and consultancy. Compared with other solutions on the market, Realex’ technology and operational approach is far more advanced, modern and fitting to our needs. We receive concise and easy-to-follow monthly reports and we always deal with a very professional, prompt and responsive dedicated account manager.”
As a result of the partnership, CryptoLogic stated that it has been able to ‘significantly improve its technical infrastructure, which will support future growth plans and demands around security and reliability’. “We are delighted to announce this deal with CryptoLogic,” said Lyon. “It is a dynamic and fast-growing company that, like Realex, focuses on delivering innovation to its clients. We have grown our business by delivering best-of-breed payment processing services, which include market-leading support and payments expertise.
“For Realex to be selected at CryptoLogic’s global payment partner ahead of an incumbent demonstrates our leadership and our ability to deliver bespoke requirements within a tight timeframe,” he concluded.
