Payment services (card/mobile)

Forming specialized teams to respond to an industry undergoing dynamic transformation

Providing uniform service in the payments industry from strategy formulation to execution, centering on card and mobile device use

The necessity for new business strategies in an industry where structural reform is underway

Originally an equipment manufacturing industry, this is an industry now in the midst of the tidal shift of structural transformation. The roadmap of the industry is being transformed by changes in forms of payment brought on by the use of mobile devices, as well as by the entry of competitors from telecommunications, EC and other Net-based industries that can leverage their Internet technology advantages. At the same time, opportunities brought on by the trend toward borderless operations have come to the fore. This is a time when every competitor is redefining its business on its own from the standpoint of the value and advantages it can deliver to the consumer.

From strategy proposal to operational support, as well as IT implementation and operation, we provide a menu of services in step with the times.

At ABeam Consulting, we work from our foundation in business consulting and IT consulting to provide a diverse range of support that makes up the kind of solutions needed to move payment business forward. We have in-depth knowledge and experience of business processes, and the organizational presence on the ground to support deployment of business operations overseas. And our advantages also include a proven track record of performance in the finance industry, as well as the ability to respond to the key concepts that define the future directions of the payment industry, including mobile and point systems, prepaid transactions and digital marketing.
