“We are pleased that Nordea is partnering with us for the production and personalisation of its Mastercard and Visa payment cards, following our agreement to modernise the bank’s payment services that was announced last December. The agreement both consolidates our leading market position and validates our partner network approach with leading card suppliers,” says Jarmo Rouhiainen, Head of Card Production and Personalisation in TietoEVRY.
Recently, TietoEVRY, MYPINPAD and Surfboard Payments have announced a partnership with an aim to bring about a significant digital transformation in the payments industry in the Nordics. The partnership brings a newly developed payment solution to the Nordic market that enables merchants to securely accept payments via any Android or iOS device without the need for single-purpose card terminals.

The software is based on MYPINPAD’s “Tap on phone”, a contactless payment solution. The solution is available for acquirers, banks and partners to offer Nordic and international merchants and retailers.
