Gareth Williams, Chief Product and Innovation Officer at Travelex comments:
“The platform is the culmination of years of hard work by Travelex and collaboration across the Finablr network. By revolutionising how we work, the technology we use, and the partners we work with, we have combined four decades of experience with a new microservices architecture to build a market-leading global fintech platform. Critically, working with Finablr, we have adopted a modern engineering culture with self-organising teams in order to create and iterate on a new and innovative suite of services.
“Not only does this allow Travelex to continually innovate and improve its products and services, but it gives our customers the services they need within one solution—and the developer centre means that our customers and prospects can experiment with our capabilities at their own convenience.
Travelex Business ensures companies get to market quicker, increase revenues and boost customer value with agile services available at the click of a button.”
