The World beyond your card

We are a Czech company operating on the market already since 1991.
We provide banks, retailers and other businesses with complex services in the area of payment technologies.

Our company is in line with the Quality Management Standards: ISO 9001:2008.

 

How we work

The values our company′s philosophy is based on

RELIABILITY

We have been operating on the market for more than 25 years now.
During this period, we have developed our own know-how, acquired rich experience, and established cooperation with the best ones.
Together we can manage to improve your business as well.

SECURITY

All our processes and technologies are certified according to the PCI DSS security norms. They assure high-level data security standard of card payments. The norms are applied to all hardware, software, or any other devices, such as servers, networks, and applications within the payment process.

PROMPTNESS

We are aware of the fact that prompt project implementation is crucial for our clients. Although we are one of the biggest players on the market, we have not lost the flexibility of a family business. Where large corporations are only on the point of approving the processes, we are already delivering the solution.

PERSONAL APPROACH

In our communication with our clients, we put emphasis on the personal approach. Each project is assigned with
a project manager, who leads it from the beginning to the end. We are personally responsible for our products as well as the subsequent service.

HIGH LEVEL OF EXPERTISE

Expertise and specialization is very important for us. We regularly participate at specialized trainings, seminars, and conferences. We are a member of the Czech Bank Card Association and
a partner of the Slovak Bank Card Association. We present ourselves at the CardForum and CardSession conferences focused on payment cards and the related areas.

SOLIDARITY

Also thanks to you, our clients, we can meaningfully help the local community by means of Rotary Club Brno City Endowment Fund, for example. We are also a long-term partner of the Czech Philharmonic Choir Brno and Mahen Theatre of the Brno National Theatre.

Behind every good project, there is a team of experienced professionals.

The Tereza Maxová Foundation to Children

The Tereza Maxová Foundation to Children

The foundation supports institutionalized children in their return to the family environment. It strives for holding the biological family together if it is considered otherwise safe for the children and thus prevent their institutionalization. It supports mothers in need in order to manage to bring up and take a good care of their children themselves.

Rotary club Brno

Rotary club Brno

In cooperation with the Rotary Club Brno City Endowment Fund, we can help disabled children housed in the Kociánka Brno Disabled Youth Care Institute and Diakonie.
Kociánka is an open facility for weekly as well as all year-round stays of children and youth. It provides social care services and assistance to children and youth with physical disabilities and secondary mental disorders, which significantly hinders their standard upbringing, education, and vocational preparation.
Diakonie ČCE provides social, health, educational, and pastoral services to those, who are affected by an unfavourable life situation resulting from their age, disability, or any other distress.

The choir collaborates with all of the Czech and many foreign choirs and conductors. They are also a regular guest at international festivals and concerts worldwide. They recorded a CD for prominent Czech as well as European publishers, which is, of course, not the only reason for us to support them in their effort.

National Theatre Brno

The proof of our genuine interest in the world of culture, among others, is our support of the Mahen Theatre of the National Theatre Brno (NDB).
Within its activity, we have become the sponsor of the international prestigious production of the classical work of world drama Othello by William Shakespeare. One of the most known Shakespeare′s plays is primarily the tragedy about two human passions, particularly envy and jealousy. The production of this play for the Mahen Theatre Company of the NDB is being arranged by the director Rastislav Ballek, who is currently one of the most original and recognized Slovak theatre personalities.
