"We're very happy with the way Serverside operated. They worked very closely with us and responded quickly to any issues that arose. Despite a tight schedule, this resulted in a smooth implementation. Thanks to Serverside, we can now offer our customers a unique opportunity to pay with their own 'One of a Kind' card, which they can easily change at any point in the future. We believe that personalized payment cards make our proposition special and more interesting."

"The technology is amazing. We thought there might be problems, even though the process is simple, but we have had none. People upload their picture, which pops into the template.
