A leading embedded finance platform company has struck up a new partnership with a business-to-business (B2B) payments solution company.

Alviere will use its modular application programming interface (API) technology to provide corporate clients with financial services options.

As well as making provision for existing customers who want to take up the offer, the move will also be available to those who are not yet on the company’s books.

‘Embedded finance’ refers to the practice of including financial services in different product and customer environments for a better user experience.

“There is a real demand from our customers for cross-border functionality and it’s a strategic component of our growth,” he explained.

“We are excited to launch our partnership with Currencycloud to offer a combined solution to existing and new Alviere clients.”

For Currencycloud, its vice president of sales and general manager of North America said in a statement that the companies shared a view on the importance of “embedded finance”.

David Heitzman pointed out that the relationship between the firms was positive from the start.

“There was an immediate synergy between us and Alviere – their customer-focused approach to delivery mirrors ours and it felt like a perfect match from the start,” he explained.

“That we both see embedded finance as the next big step for business is fantastic and we are thrilled to support Alviere in delivering that for its clients.”
