Management inventory and GAP-analysis


A European processor intends to extend their business area into the German market and requires an inventory and GAP-analysis of their technical systems in order to ensure that they meet the relevant specifications set by German issuers.


  • Inventory of the technical systems and essential processes based on existing data and expert-workshops
  • Implementation of a GAP-analysis, especially for market- and issuer-related as well as legal requirements
  • Target customer segmentation of German issuers
  • Recommendation for action based on the GAP-analysis
  • Evaluation of the potential for the envisaged market entry
  • Analysis of benchmark-data for issuer processing
  • Selection of potential provider


For the processor‘s future positioning in the German card market, we realised a significant profit improvement by modification of the product offering, and presented and implemented a turnkey concept.
