Accelerate card service roll-out with Star's CardPro Accelerator

Star, a leading global technology consulting firm, links strategy, design, and engineering to assist businesses in propelling their growth and maximising value.

Given the rise in companies launching their own card services to better manage expenses and retain customer loyalty, Star saw an opportunity. Amid a competitive market and the prevailing cost of living crisis, these card services provide customers with flexible payment options and efficient rewards management.

Star operates as a global technology consulting entity. Their unique approach integrates strategy, design, and engineering, serving as a comprehensive partner in clients’ digital evolutions. Their distinctiveness lies in their focus on end-user empathy and a commitment to societal and environmental considerations.

The CardPro Accelerator, introduced by Star, is a middleware solution that integrates effortlessly into current technology infrastructures. It’s a collection of pre-developed software modules, featuring connections to card issuance and processing allies. Notably, CardPro Accelerator can potentially cut down the development duration and expense for card services by up to 50%.

Businesses looking to launch their card services now have an alternative to starting from scratch or opting for restrictive white-label solutions. CardPro Accelerator offers a reduced time-to-market by half and minimises costs through its pre-structured modules. It incorporates features like app design, card issuance, KYB processes, and real-time notification capture. Companies can benefit from Star’s guidance during design and development, ensuring they partner with the best in FinTech for various card services.

CardPro Accelerator boasts features such as a partner-neutral gateway for card issuance and processing, a RESTful API for client-server communication, and a developer-centric API suitable for any cloud provider or personal infrastructure. Furthermore, it provides a versatile library of UI resources, including design layouts, foundational applications, and adaptable UI widgets.

Star Head of the FinTech division Olivier Bessi said, “More companies are launching their own card services. They help employers manage employee expenses and fleet costs. More smaller retailers are launching loyalty, debit and BNPL cards to keep customers returning to their stores during a period of intense competition for customer share of wallet during the cost of living crisis. Cards provide convenient ways for customers to control how they pay for goods and services and manage rewards such as loyalty points or voucher redemption.”
