What Makes
Us Different?

At TSYS, we can say with confidence that we're the industry's leading choice for payment solutions — all under one roof.

In an industry that's changing every day, we’re unlocking opportunities in payments around the world. Our story begins in 2006, when TSYS® acquired Card Tech Limited (CTL), a card management software company based in London, which was known in the industry for developing the first PC-based card management system, and its predecessor – the PRIMESM card and payments solution.

Today, PRIME's established footprint covers approximately 70 countries across the Asia-Pacific, Africa, the Commonwealth of Independent States, Europe, India and Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East.

We also draw from industry insights and adopted best practices from our more than 30-year history and experience with approximately 200 TSYS clients around the globe.
