PCT has built a sound reputation for its ability to offer flexible solutions ranging from ‘off the shelf’ products suitable for small scale operations, through to fully branded and bespoke cards for organisations requiring a tailored solution.

As preferred suppliers to MasterCard and Visa, PCT boasts a client portfolio with the likes of easyJet, FairFX and Angry Birds. A partnership between Travel Welfare and PCT saw the creation of a first for the travel industry, a prepaid card that airlines can issue to delayed passengers to buy refreshments in place of traditional paper vouchers.

Alternatives to major bank accounts are picking up momentum and a new transactional account designed for people who are missing out on the benefits of banking is being supported by PCT. The Change Account is an inclusive proposition that endeavours to change financial behaviour in the United Kingdom, targeted at those seeking an alternative to existing banking products. It is innovative solutions like these that are cementing PCT’s position as an industry leader.
