London, UK – Wednesday 16th 2022 – Caxton, the leading UK fintech payments provider, today announced a major partnership with Banking-as-a-Service provider OpenPayd to offer customers a simplified payments experience. To meet the demands of rapid growth, the collaboration will upgrade and automate Caxton’s payments infrastructure, to drive faster processing of payments in and out and deliver a better customer experience.
The deal enables Caxton to issue IBANs (International Bank Account Numbers) unique to each of its consumer and corporate clients. This will reduce time spent on payment reconciliations, remove the possibility of human error and significantly speed up payment processing time. The capability, integrated into Caxton’s platform in just two weeks, is part of OpenPayd’s embedded finance infrastructure for payments businesses – offering plug-and-play banking products and services through a single API.
“For over 20 years, Caxton has provided its corporate and consumer clients with a world class payments experience, combining best-of breed financial technology with an award-winning level of customer service,” said Rupert Lee-Browne, CEO. “As we continue to grow, we’ve chosen to partner with OpenPayd to overhaul our operations. OpenPayd’s unique API-driven infrastructure will help our teams continue to shape the future of payments, automating time-consuming processes, delivering improved operational efficiency and an even better service for our customers.”
“Embedded Accounts are fundamental elements of embedded finance infrastructure. They power critical operational processes which enable embedded finance use cases,” said Iana Dimitrova, CEO of OpenPayd. “No matter how quickly Caxton scales, embedded IBANs give them the infrastructure they need to deliver an efficient finance operation and improved customer experience. We are proud to support the bold growth ambitions of a business with such an established presence and reputation for innovation.”
