Network International Joins Huawei to Consolidate the UAE’s Leading Position in E-Commerce

Network International, the digital commerce enabler across the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, has joined forces with Huawei, the global provider of ICT infrastructure and smart devices, to provide end-to-end card processing and managed payment services for financial services customers.

Network International revealed it will support customers in the market by providing omnichannel digital payment offerings, including card issuing and acquirer processing services, transaction switching capabilities, as well as value-added services.

By combining Network’s card processing solutions with Huawei’s technology, the firms hope to support new payment players in the market as they attempt to capitalise on new revenue-generating avenues, including value-added services like cardholder self-service, control applications, and loyalty services.

Network also has a comprehensive bouquet of payment services including virtual cards, tokenisation, and world-class fraud prevention, among other solutions.

Nandan Mer, group chief executive officer at Network International, commented on the collaboration: “We are thrilled to collaborate with Huawei as we jointly strive to offer customers secure, effortless, and memorable digital payment solutions and experiences.

“Our collaboration builds on Network’s three decades of experience and expertise in creating world-class digital payments infrastructure and services for clients in the region.”

Reacting to ‘a dramatic shift in consumer attitudes’

As the region’s largest payment solutions company, Network will also facilitate the transition of institution, fintech and mobile financial services players to a digital-first approach, generating faster payments and adding convenience for customers.

Navneet Dave, managing director and co-head of processing in the Middle East at Network International, also added: “The last three years have witnessed a dramatic shift in consumer attitudes towards digital payments, leading to a higher demand and expectation for seamless digital interactions. We look forward to supporting Huawei through our best-in-class solutions, to facilitate the digital journey of digital payment players.”

Huawei provides all-in-one service offerings, based on HMS Core device and cloud capabilities, facilitating digital players in retail banking, digital wallet, and wealth management app development in the finance industry, characterised by an enhanced user experience and improved operations efficiency.

Felix Liu, managing director of the carrier network business group at Huawei UAE, explained: “It is our pleasure to collaborate with Network International to explore innovative paths to accelerate the development of digital commerce.

“Operating in the UAE for more than 22 years, Huawei has been continuously acting as a solid foundation for the digitalisation of the country. As a joint force, we believe that we will further help to consolidate the UAE’s leading position in e-commerce in the region and beyond and further enhance the experiences of our customers.”
