ATLANTA, June 11, 2019 – EVO Payments, Inc. (“EVO”), a leading global provider of payment technology integrations and acquiring solutions, announced today it has formed a strategic partnership with Vend, a leading developer of cloud-based retail point-of-sale (POS) software, to provide semi-integrated EMV payment processing for merchants.
