We can offer manpower and brainpower. We do not shy away from tedious work as loyal team members. And can take a role as transformation agents. Or simply be called in once in a while as facilitators or subject matter experts. And when needed call upon extensive relationships with other experts, built over the years by our own team of experienced and educated professionals.
What we would really like is to participate in programs and projects that support banks to accelerate revenue growth with existing clients and new clients, with existing products and new solutions. For instance by using payments, FX and trade finance products embedded in what bank clients do with other bank customers. And as such allowing customers to remove friction from local and international trade. Accelerating for bank customers sales to their clients. While strengthening resilience and compliance with international regulations. That affect both banks and their clients.
By reducing the complexity and cost of both banks and their clients of a multiplicity of formats, channels, delivery methods, apps in the app store, API keys, connection configurations and additional software modules. And by enhancing the right user experience.
With truly transformational digital and business transformation of banks and their clients.We enjoy our work and our proud of our results. We are experienced, international and eager.

The internet continues to make it easier to find and buy products. What is lacking is the speed and simplicity of identifying trusted suppliers and buyers, starting a relationship and get to business as quickly as possible. And then deal with orders, invoices, returns, credit notes, partial payments, non-payments, credit and – yes – successful payments in real-time. Anywhere and at any time of day.
Businesses are increasingly using electronic solutions in order to work more efficiently with their customers and suppliers and improve their working capital and cashflows.
BUT users are challenged with increased complexity and cost through a multiplicity of formats, channels, delivery methods, apps in the app store, API keys, connection configurations and additional software modules.
The user experience is sub optimal as the focus has been on one-sided system-to-system automation driven by major buyers, sellers and banks.At the same time market conditions and regulators push businesses to speed up and improve their processes, such as around e-Invoicing, customer and supplier identification & verification, tax administration and data security.
In years of experience, EDGE professionals have found a multi-faceted obstacle in removing Friction taken out of multiple processes, between companies and with their banks. Technologies were created by solution providers to tackle these challenges, but always in relation to the sector they operated in or the company that paid for the technology.
Because buyers want to control their suppliers, minimise spend and maximise quality of products and services delivered. Suppliers want to have independence from dominant clients and minimise their business risk. Banks want to safeguard the money they handle and need to underpin all their activities by the highest standards of risk management and governance.
Large companies need to deal with many internal departments. And small companies want to get things done simply, even if this means not perfectly. And all wish to have control as much as they can over what the others do and don’t.
