Worldpay Group invests in US payments start-up Pazien

Worldpay Group has made an investment in Pazien, a start-up founded by industry veterans David Burrows and Jason Pavona, located in Boston, Massachusetts.

Pazien is creating products that simplify the payments ecosystem, which is becoming more complicated for businesses of all sizes around the globe to understand and manage.
From selecting the optimal payment ecosystem partners and products for their business to maximising the value of those solutions, the Pazien platform will ensure merchants efficiently and effectively leverage the payment ecosystem. 
Floris de Kort, CEO of Worldpay’s eCommerce division, says: “Our vision is to be the world’s most progressive and reliable payments partner, sharing our insights and expertise to ensure our customers prosper. Pazien’s veteran team mirrors this vision, combined with a proven history of innovation in payments technology and solutions that create value for merchants. During the past 18 months, Worldpay has invested substantially in its products and insight offering. It’s not often that we see real innovation in payments, but we believe that this is one of these times and we could not be more excited about this investment.”
Jason Pavona, CEO of Pazien, says: “The payments ecosystem continues to evolve and become more complicated for merchants and service providers. The need to clarify and automate the decision-making process, data aggregation and marketplace choices for merchants has never been greater. Worldpay’s global leadership, customer first philosophy and innovative approach towards building a payments marketplace of the future through a shared vision of universal access to data, analytics and services makes it the ideal partner for Pazien.”
