TSYS



TSYS (Total Systems Services, Inc) began in 1959 as a bankcard department within Columbus Bank and trust (CB&T) to develop a system for issuing credit cards and processing transactions for one of Georgia’s first bank credit cards. This new and unique payment option revolutionized the global economy over the next half century, and by 1975, TSYS was electronically processing card payments for other banks. Later, TSYS developed a new processing technology that became the industry standard. In 1983, TSYS separated from CB&T becoming a separately managed and publicly traded company, and in 1999 built its global headquarters-the Riverfront Campus-in downtown Columbus. As a leading global payments provider TSYS has played a key role in Georgia’s rise as a technology hub.
