Vital Processing Services has formed a strategic alliance with AMS LLC, which services and resells point of sale equipment.
Vital, a merchant processor owned by Visa U.S.A. and Total System Services Inc., will help market AMS' Just-In-Time point of sale equipment and supplies.
"Our relationship with AMS combines the best of breed in POS processing and product deployment services," said Stevan Berardo, executive vice president of Vital. "This agreement enhances our back-office fulfillment capabilities for acquirers, giving them single-outsourcing convenience."
AMS, of Sacramento, Calif., is a three-year-old company that employs 80 people and services one million merchant locations.
