However we are finding Valitor’s willingness to localize solutions for each country within its licensed region is what really sets them apart in the market today.”

The European market is very interesting for Valitor and we see this agreement with hyperWALLET Systems Inc. as a significant step in expanding our issuing services across Europe.”
