08 Dec Highlights from the Swedbank Card payment Forum
On the 11th November, the 6th annual Swedbank Baltic Card Payment Forum took place in Riga. At the event, retail and hospitality industry managers were introduced to the latest trends and developments in the payment field.
Event included the Swedbank technology partner’s exhibition where we presented for the first time fully functional EMV mPOS solution for use in Baltic countries. The solution includes the Ingenico mPOS device (iSMP or iCMP) with EMV Chip and PIN and Samsung Note3 based SmartPhone. We also created special Android app to demonstrate capabilities of the integrated solution.
Swedbank forum is the largest meeting place of merchants, banking professionals and technology partners. The common goal of the event is to learn how the card industry develops, which common strategic challenges are ahead, and what are the solutions that provide value to merchants and are cost effective at the same time.
