London – June 22, 2023 – Tuum and Marqeta (NASDAQ: MQ) have partnered to offer a pre-integrated fintech solution, accelerating time to market for Tuum’s customers by working with Marqeta’s open API platform. European banks and fintechs will be able to build flexible card programmes that deliver industry-leading modern digital payment experiences while saving resources, time and money.
Marqeta’s modern card issuing platform, which is certified to operate in 40 countries, empowers its customers to create customised and innovative payment cards. The company’s platform is powered by open APIs, democratising access to card issuing technology and giving customers the ability to build more configurable and flexible payment experiences.
As a result of the new partnership, companies that already use Tuum’s cloud-native, next-generation core banking solution will be able to launch and manage their own card programmes, issue cards and authorise and settle transactions. Embedded finance is a significant trend, and banks and fintechs are looking to deliver highly personalised customer experiences, through highly configurable core banking and issuer processing platforms.
The partnership between Tuum and Marqeta combines Tuum’s solid and sustainable core banking solution with Marqeta’s modern digital payment experiences to be more efficient for customers. The time-to-market of embedded financial services is not only accelerated, but also cost-effective and can be tailored to meet the customers’ individual needs.
