Esker Integrates Stripe Connect to Offer Secure Online Payment Capabilities to Its Customers
LYON, France, and MIDDLETON, Wis. — February 11, 2020 — Esker, a worldwide leader in AI-driven process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, today announced the integration of Stripe Connect, the technology infrastructure powering the world’s most ambitious platforms, to its core product. This integration will expand Esker’s order-to-cash (O2C) solution by offering secure online payment capabilities globally and help businesses get paid faster.
Stripe Connect seamlessly integrates with Esker’s solution, giving Esker customers the convenience of working with a single payment provider across the globe, instead of having to pick from different local providers. Esker customers can now collect payment on their invoices using credit and debit cards (e.g., Visa, Mastercard or American Express) and direct debit methods (e.g., ACH, SEPA) in more than 40 countries and 135 currencies within Europe, the U.S., Canada, Latin America and Asia.
“As the most innovative player in financial technology, Stripe was the clear choice for us. Stripe’s PCI Service Provider Level 1 certified solution offers the stringent payment protection our customers worldwide expect,” said Jean-Michel Bérard, CEO at Esker. “By enriching our O2C solution with online payment, we increase businesses’ operating efficiencies and help them get paid faster, particularly in the collections process. This will also accelerate the launch of new Esker products and simplify the onboarding of our customers.”
“We’re proud to support the global ambition of Esker,” said Guillaume Princen, Stripe General Manager for Continental Europe. “By integrating with Stripe, Esker will move much faster, provide better customer experience and develop their business across the world. This is exactly what Stripe is about: giving time back to its customers so they can focus on what they do best.”
