Prepay Technologies Ltd, trading as PrePay Solutions, is a one-stop-shop for prepaid programmes. It is a Mastercard Principal Member and an FCA regulated Electronic Money Institution (FRN 900010), offering a range of services including processing, BIN sponsorship, eWallet provision, compliance and fraud services, supply chain management, customer services and end to end program design and management.

The ‘Now’ culture or ‘Instant everything’ has become a part of everyday life, particularly within the millennial generation that leads a lifestyle on the go. This includes the way they manage their finances. People want to be able to move money, make a payment or check balances on the go, not set aside extra time to do it. Today it has become immersed in the morning commute or in the coffee queue, thanks to mobile apps. This widespread culture change means financial institutions and card providers must have the right technology and licenses to be able to support this including instant real-time notifications that allow users to be instantly informed about any movement of funds in their account. 

Ray Brash, Managing Director at PPS, said: “At PPS, we wanted to ensure that faster payments became instant, moving away from batch file payments to instant payments in order to provide a faster, more efficient movement of money and enhanced user experience”.

The challenge of the 'Now' culture

Choosing the right partner

A detailed research and selection process was carried out by the PPS strategic partnerships team to choose solution partners who were not only a good fit technically (the solution) but also culturally. PPS wanted to work with providers who thoroughly understood their immediate and future needs but also had integrity, transparency and great engagement across the organisation. PPS have a long-standing relationship with Barclays, as has Form3, who provide instant faster payments service to PPS.

“People want to be able to move money, make a payment or check balances on the go, not set aside extra time to do it.”

PPS has over 200 client programmes across 30 countries
