BNL-BNP Paribas Chooses TAS Group for Card Services

BNL-BNP Paribas has selected TAS Group for card services. TAS Group was awarded the contract following BNL’s call for tender as part of BNP Paribas Group’s Domestic Market 2020 Strategic Plan. The plan sees the complete overhaul of the Bank’s existing debit, credit and prepaid card platform.

The main goal behind such a move is to upgrade its technological infrastructure to be able to better respond to the needs of the market, enable an improved Customer Digital Experience and strengthen the relationship with its Retail and Corporate customers.

The latest generation issuing solution, developed by TAS Group and part of its cashless 3.0 suite, goes beyond the traditional idea of a card management system, acting as a platform to manage all payment products independent from any physical support. The platform is customisable to the target end-users and can be interfaced by a number of different devices and channels.

The technological architecture that underlies CARD 3.0, common to all TAS Group’s product releases in the global payments area, is aimed at optimising and making all individual micro services that make up the payment processes accessible, to give the bank greater flexibility and speed of implementation for new features and new use cases, also in collaboration with third parties.

TAS Group’s cashless 3.0 suite covers the entire card and digital payments lifecycle, including fraud management, disputes, clearing with international card networks, tokenisation and security. A cloud-ready platform, progressively activated through its many modular components, which integrates with the core banking framework of the target environment.

One of the first milestones in the roll-out of the card management platform will be the issuance of prepaid cards for the Group’s business customers, followed by credit products for the retail market.
