WE WORK TOGETHER

PULSE, a Discover company

PULSE has the financial strength through our parent company, Discover Financial Services, to retain our position as a debit market innovator and leader. And as a part of the global payments brand, Discover® Global Network, we power our partner’s progress and move their vision forward.

A deeper understanding

Discover is a regulated financial institution. We understand the changing regulatory environment and the scrutiny and reporting requirements our financial institution partners experience.

A unique perspective

Our relationship with Discover enables PULSE to provide you thought leadership in areas that other debit networks simply cannot. We’re able to leverage expertise and leadership in emerging technologies and partnerships that are only available to “front-of-card” brands.

A partner in innovation

PULSE, and you, benefit from investments made by Discover Financial Services in innovation that improve the payments ecosystem.

We have a great PULSE rep that is always easy to get ahold of. He makes a point to come out and visit with us and keep us up to date on things going on in the payments world. I think that’s where they do an excellent job.
