Utilising TNS’ Dial and TNSConnect technologies, the network aims to delivers a single solution which harmonises the payments infrastructure across the diverse range of countries and telecommunications environments.
“Asia is an important growth area providing us with a strong position in rapidly evolving emerging markets,” says Lisa Shipley, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of TNS’ Payment Network Solutions.
“We are delighted to provide our highly available, resilient and secure network technology for Global Payments in Asia, where we are ideally placed to help organisations that need pan-regional support.”

In addition, the party line is that it is adaptable and scalable, allowing users to cost-effectively expand and enter new markets as opportunities arise.
