Summing Up the Year. Looking back in the past, we create the successful future

Dear Partners!

On the eve of the most glorious, felicitous and anticipated holiday, it becomes time to sum up the results. To this end, we evaluate work accomplished, and analyze fulfilled assignments. It's a kind of feedback, an opportunity to consolidate the results of our efforts to courageously enter into the coming New Year. 

Today we decided to summarize the work of NT.Payments system in the tradition of the country in which we conduct our business with you, we would like to compare our company with the highest building in the world – Burj Khalifa. 

Burj Khalifa was designed as the most grandiose endeavor ever in the history of mankind. Also, our project initially had a goal of becoming the Arab market’s leading provider of payment services through payment terminals. 

The author of Burj Khalifa project was the architect Adrian Smith, who has ample experience in skyscraper design. He and hundreds of other experts worked on the creation of a solid foundation, which is unique among its kind. The founder of our project is Alexandr Chub. He had more than ten years of experience in the business of payment technologies, and he deeply believed in the success of our company in the United Arab Emirates. In 2013, Alexander Chub and a group of professionals from different countries, jointly developed and launched a business project, which we consider as the foundation of our Burj Taunigma. 

The construction of Burj Khalifa proceeded at a pace of 1-2 floors per week. The floors of Burj Taunigma are also being laid at a very high speed. From the moment of beginning of the project in the UAE market, our company actively has been developing and growing, building floor by floor in a sustainable manner. This all is a kind of allegory, where the floors of the tower are our achievements over the past two years of productive work. 

Consequently, the very first floor of the tower is opening of head office in the United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi. After all, this is the place, where the most creative ideas are born and the planned objectives implemented. Currently, the company has four main offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and Al Ain and several service offices in other regions. 

Second floor – more than 90 staff members, who work every day in a close-knit and friendly team, and more than 20 outsourcers, located in different countries of the world, who collaborate with us for a common cause. 

Third floor – our partners and customers: People, who are always full of faith, enthusiasm and determination. At the moment, there are more than 12.000 people, working in partnership with us out of more than 87 countries. 

Fourth floor – sold franchises. The number of "smart investments" is increasing daily, and today our customers own more than 2400 «Taunigma-Kiosk» franchises. 

Fifth floor – installed kiosks. At the moment, more than 2200 NT.Payments system terminals have been set up in different regions of the United Arab Emirates. 

Sixth floor – accessible services in our terminal. The number currently stands at more than 500. With a variety of options, our services are available to users of more than 120 countries worldwide. 

Seventh floor – participation in international exhibitions. Over the past two years, our company has participated in various dedicated exhibitions, such as the Cards & Payments Middle East, Gitex, Retail Banking & EXPO, Middle East Franchise EXPO, where we presented ourselves and shared experience with companies at international level. 

Eighth floor – more than 2.1 million unique customers use our payment system, that is, every fourth resident of the United Arab Emirates! 

Ninth floor – more than 100.000 transactions, that pass through the terminals of our payment system daily. 

The tenth floor – turnover growth. Compared with December 2014, the company increased the volume of received payments seven-fold, despite of the fact that the number of new kiosks only has doubled. 

Eleventh floor – actions and promotions. Since the inception of our project in the UAE, we have repeatedly carried out various promotions for our partners and users of the NT.Payments system. Participation in promotions helped our customers to get additional bonuses, great gifts and high spirits. And we, in turn, through active work with clients, gaining inspiration for further work and scale new heights in business. 

Twelfth floor – the new construction began recently – this is an advertising project InDoor.TV and franchise «Taunigma-Display». Despite the fact that the project was launched in December 2015, we can confidently say that it will have incredible success. After all, as experience shows, advertising is one of the most profitable lines of business and the main way to promote products and services. 

And these are only the first 12 floors, built in the course of just two years. Each of them is becoming more stable, and the speed at which Burj Taunigma is growing is surprising. 

Burj Khalifa in 2009 was declared as the highest above-ground structure in the history of the construction, and it’s the building with the largest number of floors. In turn, Burj Taunigma,by the results of work accomlished work by the end of 2015, is the largest company in the number of installed terminals and successful business, which firmly occupies the market niche of providing services to receive payments in the UAE. 

Burj Khalifa – it is a completed, successful project, but adding a floor, unfortunately, is no longer possible. The Burj Taunigma, however, is growing every day, and we hope that together with you we will construct a building of an incredible height, where it soon will be difficult to count all the floors. 

The Taunigma company, payment system NT.Payments and the advertizing network InDoor.TV congratulate you with coming 2016 New Year!
Our team is grateful for the contribution that each of you brings to our common common cause. We are confident that our business relationships will only strengthen, and our cooperation will be even more fruitful in the New Year.
We wish you prosperity, personal success and smiles, symbolizing wealth and fulfillment of all your plans. Let 2016 will become for you as year full of hopes and fulfillments, year that opening the new horizons and year, that bringing success.

Sincerely,
Taunigma & NT.Payments & InDoor.TV

Our Employees’ Hobbies

Dear partners! 

Employees of Taunigma and Kiosk IT System Trading are not only professionals whose experience and knowledge help to turn ideas into reality, but also people who lead an active lifestyle. Hobbies play an important role in their lives. Despite their business, our colleagues find time to escape from the daily routine and gain strength for further fruitful work. Today we’ve decided to learn how our experts spend their leisure time. 

Natalia Kvasnaya, Marketing Manager

I like traveling very much. It is an incomparable feeling when you watch the beauty of the world around you! It is travels that make your world outlook change, and the boundaries of the ordinary thinking expand. No wonder they say that one day spent in a new interesting place is equal to a year of your usual life. Recently, I have had an opportunity to visit the Indian Ocean, where mountains form a maze of twisty bays. Externally, rocks and mountains resemble fjords; no wonder this place on the north of Oman is called Arabian Norway. Officially, it is called the Musandam peninsula. This is a great place to go, where you can boat, see dolphins in a bay, take a swim on a wild beach and watch the colorful marine life! To see beauty in ordinary things and to be able to enjoy your life – in my opinion, this is one of the most important qualities of a modern person. 

Olan Karsybekov, Co-Director of the Development Department

Our work requires concentration and attention, and if you do not spend your spare time doing something that helps to overcome the load, you can quickly “burn out”, which is often observed in the IT field. Therefore, 10 years ago I began to meditate. This is a very good method to preserve the internal balance, reduce stress and calm the mind. Meditation has a mental effect that improves concentration, increases performance at work and helps to get rid of unnecessary thoughts. Moreover, I get a good energy effect which helps me to feel many things and manage my energy body. Very often people are not able to completely relax and turn off all their thoughts. I can say that this ability will not come quickly. You should not struggle your own thoughts. As teachers of meditation say, “Thoughts are a lake, which is full of water, and if you have constantly thrown stones into the water thus making waves, there is nothing you can do but just wait until the waves calm down”. 

Yana Nadolinskaya, Content Manager

Today we live in a dynamic world where everything is boiling, rapidly developing and changing. But, you know, sometimes you need to stop for a moment to look around and understand what beauty surrounds us. So, for already 5 years, I have spent my free time with a camera in hands. This activity brings me a lot of pleasure. While people are running around me, I stop to pay attention to reality that surrounds us, to focus on details, and to see the beauty around me. I like to notice moods, feelings, character and look for interesting stories. The genre is not important; this may be portraits, animals, nature, architecture. I would like to continue to develop in this direction, and create objects for shooting myself. This activity helps to relax, to get inspired and get away from everyday life, to turn my attention to something else. 

Roman Kvasny, Co-Director of the Development Department

As a child, I dreamed of becoming an astronaut, because I wanted to experience the feeling of weightlessness. Unfortunately, for health reasons, I could not even become a pilot. So I’ve got interested in diving. As an amateur, I’ve been doing this sport for 10 years, and professionally – 3 years. Now I can dive to a depth of 18 meters, and enjoy all the beauty of the underwater world. Since water occupies 2/3 of the surface of our planet, the primary life is not on land but under water. The variety of underwater inhabitants is impressive: fish, jellyfish, stingrays, coral reefs, crabs and many other animals. It's great to feel a part of this world, to get to know its inhabitants, not to think about anything and enjoy weightlessness. 

Andrew Dygan, Technical Service Expert

Sport is my hobby. Exercise not only helps to be healthy and keep yourself in a good shape, but also gives an opportunity to relax after work. 3 times a week I go to the gym, and once a week I play football. Football develops many qualities such as speed, accuracy, reaction, endurance and quick wits. In addition, this is a team game, which teaches solidarity and a team spirit, which is a useful skill in our work.

All our employees are amazing and talented people, but all of us share a common business – our work. Follow the news in the Taunigma blog, and you will learn more about our employees’ work and passions, and about the company's life. 

Sincerely,
NT.Payments (Taunigma FZE & Kiosk IT System Trading LLC)
