They really appreciate the comprehensive consultancy of Wirecard CEE, especially the support hotline always helps in any cases. The quick support, good conditions and the problem-free hardware convinced Sonnentor to cooperate with Wirecard CEE.

Mobile Commerce: Usage of Smartphones and Tablets for online shopping
