introducing apple pay to the region and beyond
When it comes to Apple’s products, they are widely recognized for its great UX/UI and security and Apple Pay is no exception. Now, their mobile wallet finally comes to the cardholders of Privredna Banka Zagreb, CIB Bank, and Intesa Sanpaolo Bank Slovenia. In collaboration with the banks, Visa, and Apple, we have worked on facilitating the service and became the first ones to make it available for the regional banks.

WHERE WE STEP IN
Our role in introducing the service was in the security part, one of our key strengths that has been recognized regionally if not globally and now has passed the Apple tests. The Visa Token Service facilitation is where we once again excelled at, after bringing Google Pay. Being part of this project was a great achievement for our Company and a valuable experience to the team that worked on it.
For now, we have worked on facilitating the Apple Pay service with Privredna Banka Zagreb in Croatia, CIB Bank in Hungary, and Intesa Sanpaolo Bank Slovenia in Slovenia. Since this initiative was driven by carholders' expectations it puts our clients, the banks, ahead of the competition. One of the employees involved in the project Ladislav Grgac said that “This service confirmed technological leadership in digital services both for Mercury PSI and Privredna Banka Zagreb alike.”
From the banks social media channels, the cardholders seems more than happy with having a new, additional option of payment.
