Card payments

End-to-end, high-performance management

Payment solutions play a critical role in the success of downstream retailers. Customers value the benefits they deliver, and innovative payment solutions are proven to significantly increase customer loyalty for retailers, generating significant profitable growth opportunities.

Fuel cards and other specialty payment cards have saturated the oil and gas market as preferred payment options, and the need for effective card payment processing has never been greater in the face of increasing competition, cost pressures, business complexity and compliance requirements.

CGI has been involved with the technology supporting card payments since it first emerged. We understand the challenges and requirements of effective card payment management and have an extensive track record of successfully executing card payment strategies, approaches and systems for major downstream retailers across the globe.
