by May 15, 2024

Global issuer-processor Paymentology has announced a strategic partnership with audax Financial Technology, a digital banking solutions provider backed by Standard Chartered Ventures.

This collaboration enables financial institutions in Southeast Asia and the Middle East to launch and manage branded card programmes in the span of a few months.

The Cards-as-a-Service (CaaS) solution provided by this partnership allows banks and financial institutions to offer seamless payment experiences without the traditional complexities and costs.

By combining audax’s digital banking and Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) solutions with Paymentology’s advanced card processing capabilities, the partnership addresses the demand for scalable and quick-to-market card solutions in these regions.

Paymentology’s multi-cloud platform, supporting various card types, and audax’s comprehensive digital banking technology empower banks to modernise infrastructure, manage large volumes of data, deploy innovative card programmes, and enhance customer experience efficiently.

This collaboration comes at a time when banks face economic uncertainties, with many institutions operating with lower reserves and less stable funding.

The partnership aims to help banks and financial institutions streamline operations, reduce time-to-market, and navigate complex regulatory frameworks.
