Cardtek USA Expands North American Technology Support Group

ISTANBUL, January 7, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Cardtek USA, a division of Cardtek Group, a global leader in software for financial transactions, has added NFC mobile expertise to the company's technology support office in Des Plaines, Illinois to support the existing and future customers who are choosing many of the company's EMV products.


Current customers doing EMV card migration, Instant EMV Card Issuance, EMV kernels for hardware devices and needing EMV training, are being supported from the office conveniently located near to O'Hare airport.

Now with the addition of Serdar Akyel to the Chicago staff, these customers will have access to NFC Mobile expertise, as a result of his experience in major projects in Europe.

All members of the office staff have over 10 years of experience in EMV projects in Europe and Canada.

"Being centrally located in the US, and near a major airport gives us excellent access to our existing and new customers. Our 10 years plus of EMV experience in Europe and Canada has allowed us to develop very robust, high quality and cost effective solutions for the many financial institutions needing EMV products in the US EMV rollout," says Gregg Smith, NA Sales Manager.

"We feel that Instant EMV Card Issuance will be very important for banks and credit unions starting in 2013. Our award winning Palmaris Instant EMV card issuance product is low cost, easy to install, and is now supported by our Chicago team," says Esabil Bulbul, NA Product Management Director.

About Cardtek The first company of the Group, SmartSoft, based in Istanbul, was founded in 2001 as a service provider for Turkish banking sector. After continuous success, SmartSoft was accredited by MasterCard in 2010, making the company the first accredited consultancy and training provider for EMV card technologies in Turkey.

In order to offer higher quality products, Cardtek Group founded CordisNetwork and CredoWork in 2009, offering solutions for payment systems, loyalty cards and city banking solutions, processing services, projects for public sector as well as hardware solutions.
