Upon becoming Orchestrate, the startup became a more significant payment infrastructure. With Orchestrate, businesses could now access various payment platforms easily and instantly. Moreover, they (companies) can use multiple payment methods by various providers, all in a single setup. This is not limited to Nigeria alone but to different nations, a few of which are Eygpt, Ghana, South Africa, and the United States of America. There are also intentions to launch out to other nations.
According to the statement, “This acquisition will enable Bloc to focus its core product strategy on delivery seamless Banking as a Service (BaaS) API products to its customers while Orchestrate leads its FinTech infrastructure with its proprietary payments orchestration API.”
Bloc, which also has CBN-issued PSSP and Microfinance banking licenses, is significant in providing exclusive and concentrated API that lets businesses (fintech) offer banking and financial services to their clients while being the one to handle the majority of the compliance and regulatory requirements on the business’s behalf.
Due to the acquisition, Orchestrate by Bloc will be a separate application under the umbrella of Bloc’s suite of products. This is proposed to strengthen the company’s payment proficiency and user experience.
