Panini will ensure its long term commitment to the North American market, the largest Group segment in terms of turnover/revenue, where it maintains relationships with industry technology providers, channel participants, Financial Institutions, and end users as key elements of comprehensive market coverage.
While doing business globally, the Group will be also increasing its presence in a number of strategic markets in Europe, Asia, and Latin America, to develop a deep market understanding of local customer needs and to facilitate cross-exchange of technology and experience between different markets.
Panini will look for ways to provide additional value for current customers and new targeted market segments through the development and delivery of new capabilities in the areas of products, software, and services.
Panini plans investments in new products and technologies for the distributed capture market and for a wider range of applications in the payments sector, including solutions for corporate, small business, retail and banking customers.
