Nantian has been a leading IT company in the banking automation business in the Chinese market for approximately twenty years. Nantian specializes in providing reliable hardware and software products and solutions to the banking and financial industries.

VendTek and Nantian will develop a new software application that will be aimed at servicing one of the largest mobile operators in China.
