Singapore, 3rd October, 2013 – Multos International announces the launch of the new Discover D-PAS Dual-Interface application available for EMV migration on Discover, PULSE and Diners Club International networks.

We are happy to work with Multos International and offer these dual-interface products ready to meet the needs of our expanding acceptance of Discover, Diners Club and PULSE brands.”
