ASHBURN International will offer Rietumu Bank a diverse range of acquiring machines on outsourcing terms, including standard EFTPOS terminals and Android OS devices. Modern equipment and software are expected to streamline payment processes, giving end users and merchants greater convenience.
Sigitas Šniukas, Head of Sales at ASHBURN International, remarked, “I hope this partnership between our companies will inspire other banks to take on new challenges and develop innovative solutions. Based on our extensive experience in acquiring network development, we are ready to collaborate with active market players to drive further progress.”
