SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FIME today announces its partnership with Bsmart to further enhance its strategic consultancy, implementation support and certification tools and services offering to the Brazilian marketplace. The collaboration will be of particular value to issuing and acquiring banks implementing EMV-based technology in the region.
“Brazil is an important market for FIME and we’re pleased to offer extensive implementation support in local language and the ability to bill in local currency,” comments Francois Gaignard, Sales Director at FIME America. “While EMV® migration is near completion, we have witnessed many customers preparing for contactless and mobile payment deployments in recent months due to the influx of overseas visitors for the 2016 Olympics. We believe this trend will continue. Bsmart’s expertise and unparalleled local knowledge means it is the perfect partner to support our customers and drive new business in this region.”
Bsmart specializes in helping companies maximize opportunities in Brazil and has extensive experience within the payments and technology sectors. Bsmart will also support FIME in working with local customers to bring card and mobile transaction services to market effectively and confidently using secure chip or cloud-based solutions across the telecoms, transit and identity markets.
