Skaleet partners with Thunes to expand cross border payments capabilities for customers worldwide! 🌍

Paris, April 26th, 2022 - Skaleet, an international fintech providing a next-generation Core Banking Platform (CBP), announces a partnership with Thunes, the leading global cross border payments provider to complement its existing ecosystem. 

French residents send nearly 13 billion euros abroad according to the European Central Bank. This makes France the 3rd country in Europe for outgoing remittances behind Switzerland and Germany (May 2021 data). While the money transfer market in France has historically been dominated by liquid transactions, digital transfers are becoming more and more important. However, it is important to find the best solutions to transfer money in the best conditions. 

Skaleet wanted to find a partner that could offer an instant, global payment service to both B2B and B2C customers. With Thunes, Skaleet is now able to offer a wide range of fast, competitive payment services that connect directly to its customers' accounts. 

A partnership on the cutting edge of technology 👨‍💻

Thunes is a unique and simple instant payment platform that allows businesses to make payments in all corners of the world. Thunes supports over 79 currencies, enables payments to over 125 countries, and helps businesses and individuals accept over 285 payment methods. Skaleet enables financial institutions to launch new banking products and offer their customers new experiences at a competitive price. Through its open, modular and flexible CBP, Skaleet offers its customers increased customization of its solution in a limited time. 

Versatile, agile and scalable, the Thunes platform is capable of supporting a variety of payment use cases. This opens up new opportunities for members of the Thunes payment network. With Thunes, it is possible to interconnect players around the world with a single API (payment gateway) to provide processing for peer-to-peer money transfers, bulk payments, commercial payments and virtual accounts. 

On the technology side, the partnership between Skaleet and Thunes means that customers with bank accounts on the Skaleet platform can transfer money internationally with payment tracking to the beneficiary. In addition, e-money institutions have the ability to verify beneficiary information in advance. 

Through this collaboration, Skaleet expands its range of expertise and offers its customers a competitive advantage. In particular, cross-border payments will be one of the differentiating services that the fintech will now be able to deploy. 

A common vision 🤝

Both companies share a common set of values focused on expertise, technological innovation, customer service, people, and a Best-Of Breed approach. As a result, a large number of customers will now be able to access the Thunes solution more quickly and easily, while Skaleet will be able to compete more effectively in the marketplace. Skaleet and Thunes' shared ambition is to help their customers disrupt their respective markets with innovative and accessible services.
