Hi Jacques. Baie Dankie vir jou aanbod. Ek het intussen 'n span mense gekry wat al begin konsulteer het maar daar is nog heelwat informasie wat duidelikheid nodig het. Hoe kan ons mekaar ontmoet? Ek wil meer weet oor banking interconnection of data sharing van bank account activity.

Help spread the word!
