Fast, simple, and digital – "Digital first" is customer first

Customer experience needs to be at the center of your digital strategy. "Mobile first" became a slogan in the early days of the mobile device era. Today, "Digital first" is a paradigm that is changing today’s world.

The "Digital first" trend is guiding those financial institutions that want to provide extraordinarily convenient and seamless payment solutions, and boost activation as well as credit card and debit card transaction rates. We offer a secure, end-to-end banking experience throughout the customer lifecycle, providing digitalized services that are ahead of the competition. These digital bricks are enabling the consumer to immediately start transacting both in ecommerce and card present/POS use cases.

By adopting our "Digital first" service offering, you can benefit from:

  • Creating a seamless digital experience that fosters customer loyalty
  • Increasing instant card activation and transaction rates with debit and credit cards
  • Supporting multi-channel issuance, and blending digital and physical issuance
  • Providing out-of-the-box offerings for banking and issuance as a processing service

In short, "Digital first" is an important consumer trend in the payment ecosystem that has been growing progressively stronger. Recent experience, better technology, and deeper levels of adoption in society of that tech, have brought great changes in consumer expectations, and how service providers seek to fulfill them. G+D’s consistent product suite around "Digital first" just recently got certified as the Mastercard Digital First Integrator.
