Payments are in a renewal and expand beyond banks to all kind of businesses. Digitalization drives value from the transaction and card towards the user experience, identification and payment data. The cloud as technology platform and Fintechs drive operational and business models that rather quickly outgrow the established ones of traditional payment service providers and banks. rieger.fi along with all EPCA members understands where the puck is going in payments, and – as timing matters – approximately at which speed.
rieger.fi customers are issuers, larger merchants, payment institutions, payment technology and service providers and FinTech scale-ups.
The Specialization and Mission is still to be written but EPCA can add those in after.
