You have reached this page and do deserve to get the real history of why we do use ViA as a name, so here is the background:
The history to the name and the use of "via", came-out of the idea to operate Dubai as a eHUB between East and West, whereas the name naturally became "ViA DUBAI".
The definition of the word ‘via’:
The via preposition
traveling through (a place) en route to a destination. "they came to Europe via Turkey"
by way of; through. "they can see the artists' works via a camera hookup"
by means of. "a file sent via electronic mail"
The acronyme for ViA:
‘via’ become first the acronym for ‘Virtual Instant Access’, but the co-founder Mats Engstrom, did not like the use of ‘virtual’. Which we debated for a few years.
The argument Mats was highlighting was that virtual’ s definition states: (a) almost or nearly as described, but not completely or according to strict definition. (b) COMPUTING: not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so. And (c) carried out, accessed, or stored by means of a computer, especially over a network. "a virtual library".
(a) almost or nearly as described, but not completely or according to strict definition.
(b) COMPUTING: not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so. And
(c) carried out, accessed, or stored by means of a computer, especially over a network. "a virtual library".
So actualy, Mats Engström did put the correct acronym for what we actually do: ViA Instant Access that’s the history behind the name of ViA and why adopted ViA as a brand.State:, Lars Olof Känngård
The ViAcard is a registered trademark.
When the ViA® concept was created back in 2004/2005 we did only use the name "ViA®" as the name for the card, but as time did pass, it become more obvious to say and use "ViA® CARD" as our registered name for our own card program. The ViA® Card has also become the name for our Thailand based operation, which was started already 2005 under the name of Payment Solution and when the ViA® Global Holding AG and its founder acquired two Thai companies under the name of Payment Solution 2008 (Thailand) Co Ltd, which came to be changed to ViA® Card (Thailand) Co Ltd in 2011.
For your information, the first public ViA® Card was launched as The ViA® Gold Card in 2007.
ViA® Care is another registered trademark which will be used for our charity programs, within the ViA® Group. The hart-formed "C" makes it very lovely.... and caring...
Here we have the ViA Single Character also another registered trademark. If you look closely, you can see all three letters or graphical images in ViA made into one single character.
The reason for us to create this, the ViA Single Character has its history from that traditional card-brands, had (before) a single character symbol imprinted as part of what was imprinted (embossed) in a credit card.
In the future we may use the ViA Single Character as a symbol for our e-money.
Another interesting development which came-out from the creation of the ViA Single Character, was a number of animations and graphical explanations where the character came alive. If you like to see the movie (animation)
The ViAns were actually concurring the ViA Single Character, which had become a clown, so if you like to read the full story on how the ViAns came to live,
When the ViA model came to be created, we were working with many proposed slogans, such as "ViA the best way" but after internal battles, the founder Lars Olof Känngård convinced the team that "VIA A BETTER WAY" always can make things better and solve problems and present solutions. It is a slogan which never can be a limitation.
Another 'cool' thing with the slogan is that "ViA" means "the way through" and "a better way" also points out that we are on the way, so it is a slogan which has a so called double synonymy....
