Pioneering strides in new generation payment technologies

From cash to card to contactless payments, Network International has been at the forefront of payment technologies, providing complete card payment services which are replicated at an alternate site to ensure uninterrupted services to consumers.

The introduction of Near Field Communication (NFC) has added a new dimension to Smart Cards, which is why banks and credit card companies looking to provide consumers with trendsetting payment solutions are moving to contactless NFC technology for their payment needs. As the leader in the regional cards industry, the task of bringing this technology to the Middle East naturally evolved with Network International. Network International’s contactless card services are provided through MasterCard International’s PayPass and Visa’s payWave platforms.

To cater to the rapidly growing consumer finance market, Network International provides banks and financial institutions with processing services for car, personal, auto and home loans.

These offerings, together with state-of-art origination and collection modules which Network International also provides to clients, represent an exceptionally powerful service proposition.
