A Thing Total Systems Services, Inc.

Total Systems Services, Inc. (TSYS)

There doesn’t appear to be such a thing as the word “no” in the vocabulary of Total Systems Services, Inc. (TSYS®). For example, their company motto is “There’s Always a Solution.”

TSYS provides global commerce solutions for credit, debit, retail, commercial, and stored-value products. Through its companies, TSYS provides solutions for e-commerce, account acquisitions, online bill presentment and payment, online target marketing, credit evaluation, transactions, and authorizations “To be the pre-eminent global solutions provider for e-commerce.”

“We strive to be the best in the industry,” said TSYS President, Philip W. Tomlinson. “With our phenomenal team members, our vision to become the global solutions provider of choice is within our grasp.”

TSYS is on its way to fulfilling its vision with 210 million accounts worldwide, which translates into more than 300 million consumers. TSYS is also an 80 percent owned subsidiary of the bank holding company Synovus Financial Corp®, which ranked number 5 on Fortune magazine’s list of “The 100 Best Companies to Work For” in 2000. They have been as high as number 1, as recently as 1999.

In 1998, TSYS won the 64 million-account portfolio of Sears, Roebuck and Company. TSYS will process Sears accounts until 2010 with this year’s signing of a one-year extension of the original contract to include processing of any new Sears consumer credit products scheduled in 2000. In 1999, TSYS successfully converted the Sears portfolio of 64 million retail cards in the industry’s largest conversion ever.

Plenty of ISO opportunities exist with TSYS. Like many companies, TSYS has a stored-value program, this is where the ISO enters the picture. ISOs are invited to help market TSYS Stored-Value SolutionsSM. The ISO brings the merchant to the table, TSYS brings card issuance, processing, acquiring, and customer service. TSYS stored-value solutions include gift cards, employment cards, insurance cards, and general-purpose cards.

On March 21, TSYS rolled out DotsConnect, a commerce connection for the development and hosting of e-payments applications. DotsConnect enables and services payments via the Internet, which (as we all know) allows buyers and sellers to conduct commerce in our wired society.
