Dubai Bank Selects PayWare CMS from Trintech to Provide Flexible and Robust Credit Card Management in the United Arab Emirates

Bank Implements Trintech's Innovative PayWare Solution to Manage Card Processing Capabilities


DUBLIN, Ireland, and DALLAS, Dec. 15, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- Trintech Group Plc (Nasdaq:TTPA) (Prime Standard:TTP), a leading provider of transaction management and payment infrastructure solutions, today announced that Dubai Bank has selected Trintech's PayWare CMS solution to manage all its card processing requirements.

Dubai Bank, the UAE's newest and most innovative bank, plans to expand its Credit Card issuing operations through its branch network in Dubai and later through other branches across the Emirates. PayWare CMS provides Dubai Bank with an enterprise card management solution that is designed to handle multiple card products and technologies.

Within a short span of less than a year, Dubai Bank already ranks as one of the fastest growing credit card issuers in the UAE banking sector. Its success can be attributed to the unmatched value and numerable unique and innovative benefits and services that it offers -- many of which are firsts in the market.

Commenting on the new partnership, Ahmed Kalim, Vice President, Operations and IT, Dubai Bank, said "We are confident that Trintech's PayWare CMS solution has the flexibility we need to manage all our credit card processing requirements. We needed a platform that would help us to grow our card issuing business by offering a broad suite of card products to our customers. PayWare CMS gives us that capability and we can now provide new and existing customers with a range of products to meet all their present and future requirements."

Since its launch last year, Dubai Bank has pursued a proactive strategy with third party, best-in-breed service providers. This complements the bank's own commitment to providing fast and flexible financial solutions.

"Dubai Bank has quickly established itself as a customer focused financial services provider in the UAE," says Tom Trainor, EVP of Sales at Trintech. "PayWare CMS makes it easy to develop and deploy tailored card products for different customer segments enabling Dubai bank to expand their portfolio while maintaining the high level of service that their customers demand."
