Change Financial launches payments platform Vertexon, to grow recurring revenue base
The launch of payments platform Vertexton is a critical milestone as Change Financial looks to grow not only in Oceania, but also in crucial markets like the US.
Global fintech, Change Financial (ASX:CCA), is set to further accelerate its recurring revenue base after launching its payments platform, Vertexon.
Vertexon is Change’s new Payments as a Service (PaaS) offering, which provides quick-to-market card and payments solutions to banks and fintechs around the world.
The software integrates seamlessly with the clients’ core systems, and is able to deliver both physical and digital card solutions, as well other features such as Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL).
The Vertexon SaaS platform is today being launched on Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Sydney, to service banks and fintechs across the Oceania region.
In addition to SaaS, Vertexon offers full support for digital and physical card issuing, and is currently supporting over 16 million cards across the US, Latin America, Southeast Asia and Oceania.
“This market leading technology simplifies the payments experience, helping to lower the barriers of entry for new payment products,” commented Change CEO, Alastair Wilkie.
“It delivers a fast-to-market solution that gets digital and physical cards into consumers’ hands.
“Vertexon will be a key driver as we grow our annual recurring revenue.”
Vertexon SaaS offering
Vertexon is accelerating growth and scalability for banks and fintech clients around the world by providing card and payments solutions.
Through the unifying of cards, payments and processing technologies, the platform effectively delivers a modern digital solution for prepaid, debit and credit cards.
It supports transactions processing by major card schemes including Mastercard and VISA, CB, UnionPay and AMEX.
It also supports core banking interfaces and loyalty programmes, integrated by APIs.
With the launch of Vertexon, Phase 2 of the platform project has now been delivered on schedule and within budget.
BDO Unibank, the largest bank in the Philippines, recently upgraded its card platform to the latest version of Vertexon, which includes new BNPL features.
The BDO’s Credit Card Systems team said the new version added expanded features and carried over bespoke business functions that could potentially give the bank market leadership.
The multi-tenancy design of the platform is indeed highly scalable, with future growth expected in multiple geographic markets.
The platform’s seamless integration also enables it to be easily implemented in any location worldwide in just a matter of days.
Change chief product officer, Vinnie D’Alessandro, said: “We started the build phase of our SaaS platform in April this year, and to have launched our customer ready platform on schedule and within budget has been a huge achievement for our business and clients.”
D’Alessandro added that the cloud architecture can be deployed into new regions in days, showcasing Change’s extensive payments and technical expertise.
The company is now working with existing and new Vertexon clients to establish their PaaS solutions, as Change grows its sales pipeline further into FY22.
