When we decided to consolidate the acquiring of credit cards in the Nordic countries, it was a natural choice to receive assistance from Bankbrokers. They added considerable expertise regarding the different suppliers, the market and what prices that a multibillion retailer should achieve.

Bankbrokers assisted in producing tender documents, meetings with potential suppliers, assembly of the offer and the final negotiations. We experienced that the processes was managed efficiently and resulted in a highly competitive deal.
