Judopay teams up with the UK Government to boost digital payments adoption
By Megha Bhattacharya
Mobile payments provider Judopay today announced that it has been selected by the UK Government’s Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Payment Acceptance Framework. The partnership is expected to help public sector entities reduce costs and enable better payment experiences. Judopay will be offering its payments solutions to customer organisations that come under the framework.
Judopay’s CEO, Jeremy Nicholds, commented, “It is a real honour to be selected by Crown Commercial Service as the only British fintech in the framework and have that recognition for how our innovative payment solutions can help deliver a great customer experience at lower cost.”
“We were very impressed with CCS’s framework and its forward-looking perspective on the requirements around payment acceptance. We feel that as a leading digital and mobile-centric payment service provider, we are perfectly placed to assist in the framework and contribute to the public sector payment offering.”
Judopay aims to streamline payment experiences during and post-COVID along with the provision of its ‘acquirer agnostic’ approach for allowing public sector entities to benefit from innovative payment solutions without having to uproot existing acquiring relationships.
Judopay’s Frederick Becker, explained, “Payments are fast becoming cashless – especially following the COVID-19 outbreak. Moving forward, with the CCS, we will help public entities adapt to this environment, with digital and mobile-centric solutions that drive innovation in the sector.”
The CCS framework is part of the UK’s Cabinet Office, providing policies, advice and commercial services to the public sector. It also aims to increase savings for taxpayers by centralising buying requirements for common goods and services.
Recently, Judopay entered into a partnership with Mastercard in a bid to expand its network with a direct route to Mastercard’s Payment Gateway Services global acquiring ecosystem. The partnership benefits Judopay’s customers with the addition of acquirer optionality, resiliency, faster deployment and support in business expansion.
