Global Trading System (GTS) from IMX Software – the global leader in currency trading and travel money technology – empowers bureau de change operators to seamlessly manage prepaid travel cards in the same system they use for foreign currency trading.

The GTS platform allows bureau de change operators to automate the entire process of trading prepaid cards, from managing inventory and processing customer payments to issuing them at the point of sale or via online channels. It supports multi and single currency prepaid cards across multiple card programmes and global issuers such as Visa and MasterCard. A number of current IMX customers in the UK, Australia, South Africa and Europe are already using GTS to manage the prepaid card lifecycle.

Says Mars Miocic, Product Director at IMX Software: “As a convenient, low-cost and secure way for people to travel with foreign exchange, prepaid cards are one of the fastest-growing product lines for travel money providers. Prepaid cards are enjoying significant growth because they protect customers from exchange rate volatility by locking in best value rates, provide good security in the event of card loss and help them avoid overspending.

“We have developed GTS Retail to offer a flexible, fully automated, end-to-end solution for travel money providers who want to offer customers instant issue or personalised prepaid cards. Our modern, easy-to-use, multi-language point of sale system makes it simple for our clients to serve their customers quickly with prepaid products and services such as reloads, cash-outs and balance enquiries, while efficiently managing their regulatory and compliance needs.”

GTS offers centralised administration and reporting features that provide a clear view of performance and our highly flexible, parameter driven solution ensures trading, AML, KYC, local forex regulations, and other business-specific rules are enforced. With the addition of GTS Analytics, travel money providers can analyse customer trends, turnover and profitability through customised dashboards delivered via web or mobile devices.
