The company will be presenting its entire EMV Kernel product range at Cartes North America 2012 in Las Vegas on 5-7 March.

With a complete product portfolio covering the most popular platforms, CreditCall can assist any payment device manufacturer or terminal integrator to seamlessly make their products EMV ready.
