Whether you have an existing project underway, are planning an extension to an existing scheme or are considering how to tackle a new initiative, Smartran is uniquely placed to assist.

Smartran has experience assisting new entrant payment service companies in the development of relationships with international banking partners. We can advise where a company is seeking partners to take advantage of a highly flexible and secure international payment service. One of these services is at a pre-launch and pre-announcement stage, however it has already generated significant interest from the banking representatives who have tried the production test service and been taken through the service proposition. When compared to existing solutions, the service and supporting technology has significant advantages for the web surfer, the website hosts and facilitating banking partners.

Smartran has added biometric based security controls to its client offering. As standards mature, stringent security requirements become more commonplace and the technology becomes more affordable, the use of biometrics is set to become standard practice. This area of service and access security controls complements Smartran’s existing expertise in smart card applications, end to end design and implementation of systems.
