Review opportunities and impact of Multi-Issuer card operation

One of the key blocking factors for Multi-Issuer card operation, which has been confirmed in the course of the Omnipurse project, is the reluctance of Banks to team with non-banks on a common "image carrier", like a plastic card is.

The fact that the technological issue has been taken away thanks to the Omnipurse project allows restarting discussions with Banks on this Multi-Issuer issue.

Additional available arguments for Business Model for relationship between banks & transport operators:

One of the obstacles to a further cooperation between banks and Transport Operators is the perception that they can't agree on a business model where they would both find their interests.

The Omnipurse project allows to re-initiate the discussion on this issue.
