"With regard to MarketEye I would say that it’s one of the better digests, in my opinion. Gives me what I want, when I want it and in a concise, straightforward manner. I don't have time to read everything that's available on screen but Market Eye is worth making time for."

Phil Davies, Managing Director - PSI-Pay Ltd - UK

"I like MarketEye not only for updates but also for the insightful comments. The March 2014 issue is a good example: Ref. HCE: Putting a focus on attempting to integrate existing technologies into new and emerging environments doesn’t seem the most prudent direction that an industry can take."

Ernst Verbeek, Managing Director - Trionis - Belgium

"MarketEye is an excellent concise digest which keeps me regularly updated with essential market developments."
