A group of 117 banks and saving banks in Denmark have joined together
with PBS in creating a full service SEPA Direct debit-solution. PBS will
be the service provider to these banks, when combining a SEPA-compliant
Direct debit product with advanced additional services, including – for
a start – surveillance facilities, interactive information etc.
“Although Denmark currently is not a euro country, we are fully aware
where the future market lays. We want to be ready in time, and we
welcome that PBS, with whom we have a long well established business
relation, is capable of bringing this service to market”, says Anders
Dam, CEO, Jyske Bank. Jyske Bank is one of the banks signing this contract.
PBS has one of the most advanced and secure payments infrastructures
available, and wants to maintain this position. That?s why PBS is
investing heavily in future payment and information systems.
“This contract represents PBS initial SEPA effort. We are looking
forward to continuing and expanding our cooperation with this large
group of banks. PBS is sending a clear message: We want to provide SEPA
services to banks and their costumers – in Denmark and abroad. We are
pleased to take part in meeting the challenges of the upcoming
SEPA-market”, says Flemming L. Jensen, CEO, PBS.
