MIGRATING TECHNOLOGY Project Manager responsible for bringing the first prepaid card platform from the USA to Europe. This required a blend of infrastructure build and deployment matched by an extensive program of software development in the USA to ensure the solution met the international standards as mandated by Visa and Mastercard International.
To deliver the new technology sometimes following the old methods needs to be reviewed. Working with different cultures and project teams whose background and approach to delivery have contradictory standards requires new thinking to bring them together. Gerry invested time in the UK and USA to understand the disparate teams and create the environment where the thinking and understanding joined up and a shared common goal became the target for success. Continual communication and review of the progress facilitated by daily meetings and video calls ensured that no-one went off at a tangent and that timescales and budgets remained intact.
