Forter Readies Merchants with Launch of PSD2-Compliant Solution25.4.2019 11:25:00 CESTPressemelding

Forter, the leading e-commerce fraud prevention company, today launches its PSD2-compliant merchant offering, Forter PSD2 Solution for Merchants . The comprehensive, payment processor-agnostic solution enables merchants to dynamically route customers to the path of least friction required, prevent all types of fraud and violations of business policies, and optimise the customer’s payment experience – all while meeting full PSD2 compliance.

Under SCA, merchants have to introduce additional friction into the purchasing process for customers, which will lead to increased drop-off rates, reduce overall conversion rates, and provide a poor customer experience. These changes could ultimately hurt revenue, so merchants must mitigate these challenges and minimise the impa

The Smarter E Europe – Explore Sector Coupling for Yourself at Europe’s Largest Platform for the Energy Industry25.4.2019 09:53:00 CESTPressemelding

The innovation hub The smarter E Europe, encompassing the exhibitions Intersolar Europe, ees Europe, Power2Drive Europe and EM-Power, was launched in 2018 and has seen impressive growth ever since. It will be held for the second time from May 15–17, 2019 at Messe München and will now cover 10 exhibition halls, making it Europe’s largest energy industry event. This growth is due in large part to the upward trend in renewable energies. Since 2010, the proportion of energy generated worldwide from renewable sources has risen from 20 to 25 percent. By 2030, we’re looking at a jump to around 60 percent. In Germany, an average of 45 percent of all electricity generated already came from renewables in the first quarter of 2019. This dynamism is stimulating innovation and shaping the modern energy industry. The buzzword of the hour is sector coupling – a unification of the previously independent electricity, heating and transportation sectors. For instance, a photovoltaic (PV) installation in
