About Savantor

When you need specialist business or technical advice and help, it always pays to seek the best expertise - and no-one knows more about the cards, payments, transaction processing and banking industry across Europe and beyond than Savantor.

Since 1997 our team of senior people from financial services, software, processing and related industries has completed major projects for many well known banks, card schemes, third party processors and hardware/software vendors. The value of that combined experience is incalculable to our current and future clients.

Savantor provides a wide range of strategic advice and operational implementation, based on detailed knowledge of the latest thinking within the industry. The results we deliver are both rapid and practical because, as you would expect, we've encountered similar circumstances before so we know what's coming next.
