Who is Modulr Finance and what is your role?
Modulrfinance.com is the 2nd fastest growing tech company in the UK. Our technology removes the need for bank accounts to make payments, automating payment flows and embedding payments within its clients existing architecture. Clients include Revolut, Sage and Liberis. I run marketing, responsible for numerous content, event and demand generation programmes throughout the year.
What are the current trends shaping your market?
We’re interested in the way that businesses of all sizes are leveraging payments as a way to add or enhance their services as part of what they do. There are also exciting regulatory shifts happening in Europe, and as a result many innovative business models and players are embedding payments into their solutions making it easier for customers to make and receive payments instantly.
What is your key challenge for 2021?
To date we have been singularly focused on building our secure and resilient payments platform. We are currently investing heavily in content and virtual events programmes, to educate and get to know the customer. Part of this, supported by TechPros.io is to entertain our prospective buyers through collaborative thought leadership interviews, roundtables and workshops. Our strategy is to help teams learn more about the payments ecosystem and in doing so get to know people along the way.
How are your TechPros.io programmes going?
We have had a fabulous start to the year with over 50 C-Level interviews for our Laggards and Leaders: Fast-Tracking Financial Technology Innovation in a Legacy Ecosystem programme. We started in the banking sector and TechPros has produced the first of two publications on the subject, recently opening up interviews to other sectors whilst launching a new topic ‘‘Instant And Convenient’ – How Businesses Are Winning Over The Digitally Demanding Customer. We are also ramping up our virtual roundtables as well as a new virtual workshop programme.
