Cardtek’s PCI DSS, MasterCard and Visa certified Processing Center is serving over 50 customers with its reliable infrastructure.

Cardtek’s dedication finds its roots in its founders who are still actively involved in the management of the company. Building on their vision and state-of-the-art engineering, Cardtek has had the opportunity to bring to market over 20 “Global First” projects, from the first contactless credit card back in 2006 with Garanti Bank (now part of BBVA), to the first contactless prepaid card for public transportation in India with Axis Bank and NPCI in 2015.
