OUR TEAM ON SMARTCARD 2019
This year's SmartCard didn't go without our participation. We had a team of two - Jelena Kolega, Head of New Solution Design, and Gordana Breyer, Head of External Relations. They held an impressive presentation on the subject of digitalisation of every aspect of our lives including payments too. In line with this, Jelena and Gordana explained how 62% of consumers now own a smartphone, 55% of smartphone owners use their phone for social networkind and 48% of users regulary download apps. And this is why there is an increase in digitalisation of services and constumption as well as increase in mobile and online payment transaction.
How does this apply to us? Well, we are at the forefront of digitalisation and the challenges that surface before every organization involve finding new and innovative ways to grasp the consumers’ attention and direct them towards their products and services, but also creating products and services that deserve consumers’ attention, time and involvement - and that is what we do too.
meeting the IT and WorkIn Science STUDENTS
Mercury Processing Services International regularly participates in the Career Week of Faculty of Organization and Informatics in Varaždin, and this year is not an exception. Our representatives were mingling with FOI students today, alongside 50 IT companies who nurture relations with academic community. The focal spot is our stand in the Faculty hall where students stop by to collect information about working in our Company.
Aljoša as our innovation guy was taking part in the panel discussion debating over blockchain and constant growth of the fintech industry. As expected, these two topics proved to be of great interest for the student population eager to always stay at the top of technology trends. And to students we wish good luck in the future professional endeavors, hoping to see some of them also in our ranks.
We were also present at the WISe event for the first time and we were very impressed with everything, and so were the students.
What is WISe? WorkIn 'Science - WISe - that is, a career day at the Faculty of Science, organized by students and staff of the Faculty. It brings together and represents companies of different fields of interest. The aim of the event is to inform and familiarize students of all departments with the job market and to bring to the students employment opportunities after and during their studies. WISe brought together companies that hire people from one or more departments of the Faculty and in that way introduced students to potential employers, as well as other opportunities they are not familiar with during their studies.
We were there in an attempt to acquaint the future scientists with the work opportunities in Mercury Processing Services International. Everything happened around our purple, out of this world stand, where students stopped by to collect information about all benefits of working in our company.
Furthermore, we were showcasing our flagship digital products, explaining the cutting-edge technology deployed in the payment industry.
Besides the products we had our people who took on the ambassador roles and fed the students with all the relevant info about Mercury Processing Services International as employer.
