Six hundred outlets in the VBI network will be able to use SIA-SSB’s technology infrastructure to manage operations relating to payments carried out with credit and debit cards. SIA-SSB will manage the entire authorisation process for all types of cards, clearing and settlement services, anti-fraud monitoring, ATM and POS terminals and other value-added services for Volksbank.
Michel Ivanovsky, member of managing board and COO of VBI, said: “With this new infrastructure, we will take a big step forward. Magyarországi Volksbank in Hungary and Volksbank Romania are the first VBI banks at pan-European level to have chosen to use the innovative services developed by SIA-SSB for the international financial system.”
