Episode Six, a next-generation financial technology provider, has been selected by Visa as a partner in its Fintech Fast Track program for hosted financial and payments product solutions in Asia Pacific (APAC). This follows closely after Visa announced its collaboration with the technology provider to streamline the way fintechs build, test and launch new products.
As part of their relationship, Episode Six has implemented Visa functionalities such as Visa Direct and Visa Token Service (VTS) into its software technology platform, thus expanding access to Visa’s core digital capabilities and its global payments network. Episode Six’s platform can be licensed for use by fintechs and other companies and hosted in their own data center or cloud, giving them full control to customize and manage financial and payments products.
“We’ve built a future-proofed solution that benefits those in the fintech space and the broader financial services industry, but also any company that’s looking to participate in digital transformation,” said Episode Six CEO John Mitchell. “We’re happy to have partnered with Visa to expand our growing footprint in APAC. We look forward to working closely with them to enable clients to get to market faster with more innovative and customer-centric product solutions.”
Episode Six’s platform provides a comprehensive set of more than 500 APIs to facilitate a higher level of innovation and customization, thus allowing its clients to build consumer and business products to meet their customers’ different and evolving needs. Its global solution has the capability to handle different languages, currencies and country-specific regulatory requirements, as well as flexible cloud or on-premise hosting options. These capabilities unify and simplify the management of product solutions across countries and regions.
This announcement comes shortly after Episode Six announced its expansion in Japan, Southeast Asia and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), as well as the addition of three executive leadership team members in these regions. Episode Six also recently rolled out its latest product enhancement, IONIC Technology, which allows its clients to bind their own code and behavior requirements into Episode Six’s existing system framework.
