They enabled the credit union movement to expand their service offering and afforded a low-cost structure to support unbanked customers in emerging markets.

In 2015 GPC launched their North American entity, Global Processing Centre NA (GPCNA) to deliver premium payment processing solutions to the Canadian market by leveraging the strength of the GPC Antigua payment platform.
