Technology

Digital Transaction Processing

We build our own platforms, and have developed secure encrypted processes that deliver thousands of transactions every day.

sQuid’s core system

A powerful and sophisticated enterprise application that sits at the heart of our global payment and data transaction system - the core manages all interactions between the customers, merchants and wider-banking system.

Payment platform

Our secure, reliable and scalable eMoney payment platform is compliant with PCI-DSS Version 3.1, the highest level of PCI compliance. The platform integrates with multiple front-end web applications and processes, reconciles and settles millions of transactions every month.

Data platform

The sQuid data platform and accompanying technology captures and creates digital data profiles for individuals, enabling real-time reporting, sophisticated data mining capabilities and advanced analytics.

Web-based applications

We have developed a range of intuitive web applications for our clients and their end-users. These are used to manage client and end-user accounts, and we also build bespoke applications if required.

Mobile applications

We understand that the technological landscape has changed; that our users are much more likely to access their customer account using their smartphone. That’s why we developed our own mobile App, to ensure that our customers were able to access their account anywhere, at any time.

NFC-enabled tablets

We upgraded and evolved our reliable, tried & tested merchant terminals to our new Android based EPoS system that uses a bespoke tablet. We made this move to cater for our growing number of Humanitarian Aid & Development clients, and for our increasing activity in Africa.

Contactless cards & other identifiers

Our eMoney application can be added to contactless smart cards that feature sophisticated multi-wallet functionality. Other identifiers, such as biometric or wristbands can also be used.

Integration

Integrating with our technology is easy.

We provide our sQuid application programming interface (API) and develop against several API’s as well to provide a better solution for our clients. We also work with major equipment and service suppliers to deliver our fast, flexible and secure payment solution.

Africa

We see the potential in Africa; we understand the local environment

It’s a market with the potential for exceptional growth in the immediate future, so we’re continuing to build upon our capacity to better service our clients and attract new business.

Our dedication to this region extends further than just partnering with organisations to deliver specific humanitarian aid programmes. We operate a dedicated, knowledgeable office and team based in Nairobi, Kenya, to oversee our African operations - who also manage the on-the-ground efforts for the iMlango programme.
