Card Suite Acquiring Management System is an end-to-end solution designed to manage the acquiring activity of financial institutions: the system covers the comprehensive range of tasks to accept payment cards for payments at merchants. The new Card Suite version implemented in the Bank allows expanding the variety of offered payment services and improving current business processes according to requirements and scope of activity of acquiring partners. The system also includes multilevel hierarchies of merchants, supports a variety of transaction and settlement currencies, and can be flexibly configured in line with business needs.


With the new system Russian Standard Bank is able to develop solutions for different merchants and provide customers various payment and settlement options based on their wishes. Moreover, the new system allows creating catalogues, thus ensuring the integrity of stored data and streamlining registration and maintenance of points of sale, as well as it provides opportunities for automated processing and defining the task execution order.

As part of implementing the new solution, data arrays of several thousand points of sale (bank partners) were successfully migrated with allowance made to merchant hierarchies, including agreements and financial terms. The Bank’s acquiring database was created for further statistics and reporting. Tieto specialists provided full project maintenance, whereby the new system was launched as promptly as possible.

As the Director of Card Suite, Tieto, Māris Ozoliņš, noted: “We are happy to celebrate the successful completion of such a complex and large-scale project. We give our teamwork full credit for this success. Owing to Tieto`s and Bank`s specialists’ notable depth of expertise, the project goals were accomplished fully and at the scheduled timeline.”
