We improve Time-to-Market, mitigate Risk and reduce Cost

complex payment world

A complex FinTech world.
Real life executive experience: 

  • Point of sale and mobile payment technology

  • POS and card-not-present acquiring/processing

  • Acquirer – Processor – PayFac – ISO – VAR – ISV

  • Underwriting, merchant onboarding, fraud in payment

We understand the economics of the industry and have an extensive network that can be engaged


Merchant Life Cycle.
Treat your customer right – and yourself:

  • Merchant identification and sales process

  • The first 90 days of processing: Volume, risk, profitability

  • Chargebacks and disputes

We value your customers but also your money

Inefficient processes across the organization - posing risk, costing money, wasting opportunity:

  • Complex systems/tools that do not communicate or share efficiently

  • Company-wide processes that are not coordinated

  • Back office (pricing, underwriting, legal) or customer facing (onboarding, ongoing support, account management)

We reduce risk and cost and improve time-to-market


Big Data. Hurdles to overcome and realizing its value:

  • Often siloed in different systems (CRM, ERP, BI…); useless or expensive to mine

  • Structured and/or unstructured (i.e. from social media)

  • Lack of resources to collect/standardize/query/report/analyze

  • If you introduce third party/augmented data, can you enhance the value of your BD?

  • Once BD works: generating… internal efficiencies, customer stickiness, monetization opportunity!

We design a robust platform and add third party data to provide maximum value of BD
