Network International to showcase comprehensive card solution portfolio at Gitex

“Recent consumer behavior surveys indicate a trend towards a cashless economy in the Middle East. The increased preference for cards over cash coupled with the EMV mandate calling for smart cards by 2006 means that member banks are expected to move to chip-driven cards starting this year. The ever increasing volume of transactions makes it necessary to have an efficient processing solution in meeting both card scheme mandates as well as customer expectations. Outsourcing not only enables a reduction in costs, but also helps capitalize on knowledge and expertise by allowing clients to focus on core competencies such as Strategic Development, Product Development, Marketing and Customer Service,” said Ram Chari, Senior Manager, Network LLC.
