General Information

Corporate History

ASSIST was developed by Reksoft (www.reksoft.com), one of the leading Russian IT companies. It was launched into operation in April, 1998 as internet payment gateway for OZON (www.ozon.ru) to provide it with credit card payment option. OZON made a success story in Russian internet and still is the leading Russian internet shop selling the variety of Russian books, videos, music, software etc. It is also one of the key clients for ASSIST.

In April 1999 ASSIST was deployed for full commercial operation. By that time negotiations were started with major Russian banks and processing companies. As a result, ASSIST integrated with processing centers of STB Card and Alfa bank in the year of 2000 and with UCS processing center in the end of 2001.

In 2002 ASSIST continued to develop as a multi-banking system providing new services to internet shops. It was ASSIST that was the first in Russia together with Alfa bank to introduce SET™ technology for internet payments. In excess, ASSIST became the first Russian internet payment system that started to offer web-services to Russian internet shops based on Microsoft technologies.

ASSIST spun off from Reksoft, its mother company, in April 2002 to continue developing according to new strategic plans. These plans include new acquiring banks, e-wallets, m-commerce and e-commerce, solutions for various businesses.
