Bank South Pacific, which recently acquired Westpac Bank’s operations in Samoa, Tonga and the Cook Islands, Bank South Pacific, has chosen to retain Euronet Software Solutions’ existing Euronet ITM Payment Hubs in these locations.

Cindy Ashcraft, vice president of Euronet Worldwide and managing director for Euronet Software Solutions, said: "BSP has the largest fleet of POS and ATM devices in the Pacific Islands. As such, the ability to provide BSP with a solution that securely, accurately and efficiently serves this large, geographically dispersed territory is paramount.

"We’re honored that BSP has chosen to continue with ITM. We look forward to working with BSP, ensuring a smooth transition as ITM is integrated with their other regional operational assets."

Additionally, BSP has taken steps to acquire Westpac’s operations in the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, pending regulatory approval.

Euronet Software Solutions is a division of electronic payments provider Euronet Worldwide.
