Offering EMV solution

The chip and mobile software solutions provider, Aconite, has announced that Tutuka, a South African third party processor, has selected Aconite’s Smart EMV Manager solution to deliver full EMV compliance in their card processing platform.

Tutuka provides South Africa’s prepaid card service for clients issuing Visa and MasterCard prepaid products. The upgrade of this service to full EMV capability will ensure that clients, who include Standard Bank, Vodacom and MasterCard, can benefit from the enhanced security that EMV brings.

“Aconite is delighted to be assisting Tutuka to deliver a fully EMV-compliant solution.” said Cathy Bracewell, EMEA Head of Sales at Aconite. “With EMV migration now well advanced in the major credit and debit issuers in South Africa, it is imperative that other card products follow suit. Aconite’s Smart EMV Manager provides a fast track, low risk method of bringing advanced EMV capability to an existing card processing platform.”

Drisha Nair, Tutuka Director said “EMV capability is increasingly necessary in the card issuing environment. Tutuka is excited to move forward with Aconite in completing the project and remaining a leader in the issuing space in Africa.”
