“In Europe, SMEs form the backbone of the economy and represent two thirds of jobs in the private sector” comments Luca Moroni, Head of Visa Business Solutions Southern Europe. “They are therefore playing a fundamental role – continues Moroni – in the path of Europe’s economic recovery and their ability to embrace and integrate digital technologies has never been so important”. “Visa – adds Moroni – is constantly committed to supporting the digitization of businesses by helping them understand the benefits offered by new payment technologies. We are therefore delighted with this partnership with Tot to offer new payment solutions dedicated to businesses and merchants to digitize and optimize business processes, reducing costs and consequently increasing competitiveness “.
