Smartphone-locking FinTech platform NuovoPay has teamed up with B2B Software as a Service (SaaS) platform PaygOps to enable accessibility for smartphone financing through digital technology procurement along with solar home equipment, according to a ProMobi Technologies press release Thursday (May 5).
PaygOps connects energy and utility appliances and payment methods within an enterprise’s applications suite or application programming interface (API) services, the press release says. It also allows distributors to manage their last-mile operations.
Last-mile distributors can now offer NuovoPay smartphone financing to their end users through this integration, complementing their existing processes with PaygOps to manage finance, sales, after sales and inventory.
“As we continue tailoring our IT solutions to serve multiple industries, we believe that NuovoPay is not only a key player in the digital sector, but an important partner whose mission aligns perfectly with that of Solaris Offgrid, which favors PaygOps platform to support them in reaching more households with reliable products and facilitating greater access to consumer financing, while we combine efforts to close the digital gap in the developing world,” said Thibault Lesueur, co-founder and CCO at Solaris Offgrid, in the joint press release.
