PCT Technology

They have experience in providing prepaid card solutions to clients handling travel, finance, airline, corporate and government markets.
They currently manages over 20 major programs ranging from large corporates for example: EasyJet, Angry Birds and Brittany Ferries, to specialist prepaid currency providers FairFX, through to the provision of Debit Cards for small banks, such as Ghana Bank. As part of the Corporate Expense program, they also have over 200 business customers covering a range of different sectors in the UK and throughout Europe.

The Problem

Their technical objective is to develop a ‘Platform as a service’ prepaid processing platform which will support rapid delivery of complex prepaid program and reduce time to market. The card programs should be highly configurable to use different profiles and URLs, based on the card product /design and institution code, for accessing third party services provided by FIS and IID.

The Solution

IQSS provided a bespoke solution in the latest technology which includes web services, administration website and a set of supporting backend processes. This new platform is more configurable and ensures easy and rapid setup of new products. The backed processes will take care of the overnight file from card provider and segregate data relevant to each of the participation program. We have also re commissioned their existing legacy programs built in different development languages.

Benefits:
