  • Provided guidance on how to resolve problems with the PIN management on the card.

Steve Carter, Delivery Manager at Savantor, emphasised how Savantor’s industry knowledge and structured approach can pay dividends for the client.

“Our ability to utilise our knowledge and explain the business benefit of EMV parameter settings was seen to be of great value when no such expertise existed internally.
