(NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of payments and financial services technology solutions, today announced it is positioned as a Leader among the companies that Forrester Research, Inc. invited to participate in its industry evaluation, “The Forrester Wave™: Merchant Payment Providers, Q2 2022.”

“We believe our position as a leader in this Forrester Wave is a testament to our ongoing investment in the Carat operating system, and to the thousands of Fiserv associates globally that consult with our clients to enable differentiated experiences across channels, devices, and regions,” said Suzan Kereere, Head of Global Business Solutions at Fiserv. “We are proud that our strong heritage in payments, innovative technology, and unparalleled global reach are helping create a smarter future for our clients.”

Forrester analysts evaluated the most significant merchant payment providers based on 36 criteria related to the strength of each provider’s current offering, strategy, and market presence.

In the report, Forrester notes that the scale of Fiserv impresses, its value-added services are substantial, and its customer-centric transformations are starting to pay off, stating, “Merchants choose Fiserv because they can often work with [the company] across the globe for all of their needs…The company has overhauled its organizational structure, contracting, and client success model and launched Carat, the brand under which Fiserv has organized its omnichannel payment portfolio. Fiserv is a best fit for enterprise merchants that desire a more consultative relationship with their partner.”
