Savantor is the new name for the Global Insight Group, one of the leading experts in cards, payments, transaction processing and banking across Europe and beyond.
The specialist firm provides business and technical expertise to many well known banks, card schemes, third party processors and hardware/software vendors. The name change will avoid confusion with a similarly named American company which has recently increased its presence in the UK and Europe.
Established in 1997 by directors Geoffrey Down and Geoff Durham, Savantor's current client base includes such names as AIB Bank, APSS, BOI, Experian, Post Office Financial Services, Primeline, RBS Group and Visa Europe.
According to managing director Geoffrey Down "Savantor is an extension of the word 'savant' meaning 'a learned person' - which reflects the reputation we have built in the market place regarding the quality of our services."
