ASORS transaction system
A central transaction system for processing EMV card payments on CSOB terminals.
The solution delivered
ASORS, a comprehensive authorization system, is the central component of all payment card acceptance processes at more than 30,000 ČSOB terminals and also on its 3D Secure payment gateway in the Czech and Slovak Republics. The system forwards payment transactions to transnational card processors and optimizes bank card acceptance processes and costs. The distributed part is represented by the management and payment applications implemented in POS terminals.
The benefits delivered
The robustness of the system makes it possible to authorize more than 1 million transactions per day with availability exceeding 99.9%. Primary business partners include ČSOB and several of its important customers in transport, e-commerce, the retail sector and firms operating fuel stations.
“ASORS is the digital heart of our card-based operations, both on the premises of our business clients and beyond them. It provides cashless experiences for the masses and enthusiasts of digital technology. ASORS is also applied in a number of additional services we provide (such as card acceptance aimed at increasing the effectiveness of payment terminals and enhancing the end user experience). ASORS combines user-friendliness and managing secure payments with additional services; hence it creates a system for mutual interaction between traders and their customers. Thanks to cooperation with Monet+ on a wide array of business and retail solutions we can bring unique services to the market, meeting the most demanding requirements of our clients.”
