With established business relationships within these countries, Trans Screen Group will leverage Consorteum’s expertise to provide financial services to their existing partners.

Consorteum has also been in discussion with other companies within the payroll industry to develop new payroll card programs. With proposals presented, the company will continue to develop these relationships to reach the deployment phase.

Additionally, the company announced that “My Golf Rewards” has finalized its pilot program over the summer, completing all testing and platform development. Their next objective is to add 20 new golf courses to the program in early 2010. Consorteum is also planning to further expose the My Golf Rewards program to golf course owners and end consumers through trade shows and industry publications.

The company continues to explore adding industry professionals and experts who have experience in the areas of banking, credit card issuance, payment processing, rebates and payroll. Currently, Consorteum is looking to expand its Board of Directors and Board of Advisors with financial services industry experts and senior executive level professionals running successful and profitable organizations.
