New Service for Business from Citadele and ASHBURN International

For the first time in the Baltic countries, Citadele Bank, together with ASHBURN International, has launched a project on the operational issuance of mobile payment terminals as part of the network acquiring. Representatives of various enterprises can get mobile EFTPOS terminals at the bank branches in Latvia and Lithuania.

If before the contract process for the rental of payment terminals and their installation took 2-4 business days, now the activation of mobile EFTPOS terminals takes 3 hours. Bank staff provides customer training on how to use the device.

“Our task is to help business representatives achieve even greater success. Mobile payment terminals are necessary for all trade and service organizations that accept plastic cards for payment, but for those companies that provide services not in the stationery retail, but at fairs, exhibitions or festivals, they are indispensable,” says Ivo Ansbergas, Head of Citadele ATM and Payment Card Services.

In Latvia, a new service was appreciated during the feast in Durbe, where are no ATMs, but it was urgent to organize a payment service for the guests of the event.

Mobile payment devices are in demand by delivery services, taxi, and restaurants; because they allow you to quickly make payments without using cash in any place convenient for the client.

“Service companies appreciate the ability to receive payment terminals quickly, and good customer reviews are the best assessment of our work,” says Žoržas Šarafanovičius, Executive Director of ASHBURN International. “This operational service was implemented due to the flexibility of the unique TransLin.iQ terminal network management solution developed by our company.”
