Papaya Global, the global people management platform for the remote working era, announced that it has agreed to acquire Azimo, the international digital cross-border payments service, making it possible to pay employees almost instantly regardless of geography and typical payroll limitations.

The acquisition of Azimo will significantly expand Papaya’s capabilities in payroll payments and strengthen its promise to help companies smoothly manage their remote workforce from onboarding to payments.

Eynat Guez, Papaya Global CEO and Co-Founder said: “Payroll payments made easy regardless of geography are what set us apart from other technology vendors, and this acquisition will make it possible for companies to make instant payments to their global teams. Azimo’s global digital payment network, multiple payment licences, and deep FinTech expertise will also enable us to build new payroll-related services for our business customers and their employees.”

The deal brings Papaya’s deep expertise in remote workforce management technology with Azimo’s long experience building digital cross-border payment networks to move money quickly and smoothly worldwide.

Azimo Chairman and Founder Michael Kent said: “Combining Azimo’s assets and expertise with an emerging global leader in remote working enablement like Papaya will allow them to deliver even more value for their business customers, especially those increasingly paying and managing remote employees.”

Azimo CEO Richard Ambrose said: “Papaya’s customers will benefit hugely from our long experience in building payment technology and operating as a regulated payments business.”

The acquisition is subject to standard closing conditions, including regulatory approval. The two companies will continue to operate independently until closing. All Azimo employees will join Papaya. Upon closing, Papaya Global will gain payment licences in the UK, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia and Hong Kong, and a global digital payment network reaching more than 160 countries.
