Washington D.C April 2023 – Paymentology joins the SME Finance Forum as the newest member of our global membership network. Our members are SME financing experts from 80+ countries who share the common goal of expanding access to finance to small businesses worldwide through knowledge exchange and innovation.
“Since 2016, we’ve been implementing our mission to build a global membership to support better SME financing, and since then, we’ve established a network with over 240 active member institutions, which operate in over 190 countries sharing the common purpose of helping under-served enterprises. We are delighted to welcome Paymentology and their global expertise on cloud-native digital payments,” said Matthew Gamser, CEO of the SME Finance Forum.
In March 2021, a merger took place between Paymentology and Tutuka, (founded in 1998 by now Paymentology CEO, Rowan Brewer) resulting in a payments and card processing powerhouse. The move combined the ultra-advanced, multi-cloud platform of Paymentology with the global reach and experience of Tutuka to revolutionise cloud-based processing globally. Today, Paymentology is the leading next-gen global issuer-processor. They give banks, fintechs and telcos the technology, team and experience to easily issue and process any type of physical or virtual card, putting cards and payments into the hands of millions of people, anywhere in the world, rapidly and at scale. Their multi-cloud platform enables fast and seamless deployments, even as a dedicated instance in-country or in-region, in compliance with changing regulatory environments.
“By becoming a member of the SME Finance Forum, Paymentology looks forward to being part of a respected, authentic global network, contributing our strong voice and and supporting more fintechs, banks and telcos to achieve their ambitions with our global payments technology,” says Rowan Brewer, CEO, Paymentology.
