Card-as-a-Service Business Model


"With payment modernisation gaining a lot of attention, the dynamic in the card business is shifting. According to HPS, banks and financial institutions are at risk of loosing US100billiontoUS100 billion to US150 billion in revenues globally if they don't modernise their infrastructure.

Although card payments have been around for a long time, recent entrants in the payments landscape have brought about significant disruptions. The rapid pace of innovation within the fintech sector coupled with challenges stemming from outdated technology and intensified competition is inflicting a new pace in the card ecosystem. As a result, FIs are forced to re-evaluate their current infrastructure and payment capabilities to service this dynamic environment.

Banks and issuers are turning to core processors to enter new markets in order to increase scale and sustain growth and profitability. The card business model is evolving from a primarily transactional model to one that focus on the creation of value-added services for customers, forcing banks to redefine their strategies to navigate emerging challenges and maintain their competitive edge.

#CaaS, Card-as-a-Service is one of those innovative business model that provides a way for FIs to innovate.
