The Juma al-Majid Group, a Dubai retailer, has switched to a payments processing system provided by S1 Corp. of Norcross, Ga., and Network International LLC.

S1 said Monday that its Postilion unit supplied the software that Network International, a Dubai processor, uses to handle the retailer's transactions.

Network International said it is the United Arab Emirates' largest payments processor.

Imad Yassin, the chief financial officer of Juma al-Majid, said in a press release that it had switched to this payments system to give better customer service and that the system will also support cards that use the Europay, MasterCard, Visa smart card security format. "By working with Postilion and Network International, we have a system in place that will grow along with our business," he said.

Ram Chari, the general manager of Network International, said in the release that "using Postilion" lets the processor "reduce the amount of hardware required at the payment desk and provides a secure payment system that meets the latest card scheme regulations," and would "result in significant amounts of time saved per transaction."
