Five years ago, Mercator’s leadership was challenged with meeting aggressive growth goals that would expand their business across multiple countries in a short period of time.

They needed a trusted partner with the experience, capacity and innovation to quickly align with Mercator to support multi-country storefront and card member expansion.
