Agrobank, one of the largest state banks in Uzbekistan, together with Tieto has implemented a range of Card Suite systems to issue and process Visa International payment cards.
The solution will ensure smooth operations and a wide spectrum of services to be offered to Bank's customers, thereby supporting the development of the bank.
Agrobank is now able to issue different card products - international, domestic, debit and credit with the possibility to apply different credit schemes.
