Strategic Sourcing


Our Strategic Sourcing team supports initiatives such as vendor selection, contract negotiation, program implementation, conversion activities, and operational benchmarking. The scope of our services covers the entire payments value chain – processing, servicing, specialty functions, and payment networks.

Our clients include the world’s leading financial institutions, retailers, credit card companies, merchant acquirers, ATM deployers, and payment processors. These clients’ payment programs encompass consumer credit (general purpose, co-brand, and private label), commercial credit, small business, signature debit, PIN-network, prepaid debit, ATM, and alternative payment programs. In addition, our team supports both traditional and emerging payment form factors such as mobile and EMV.

We are experts on the vendor community, competitive selection processes, program start-ups, in-sourcing/outsourcing assessments, and contract negotiations.

Our Strategic Sourcing team draws on a pool of professionals with years of experience. The diversity of our client base coupled with the longevity of our client relationships allows us to bring truly unique insights. In addition, our team supports both traditional and emerging payment form factors such as mobile and EMV.
