In an announcement made by Solace , the company has furthered its partnership with Intelligent Wave Inc. to develop next generation payment platforms in Japan.

The aim of the partnership is to help Japanese financial institutions to provide seamless payment experiences for customers.

"We are pleased to deepen our partnership with Solace to help modernize the payment processing systems for our customers, who provide mission-critical services in the financial services industry," commented Tsukasa Iseki, CEO, IWI. 

"By enabling smarter capacity planning and on-demand scaling, Solace's messaging infrastructure brings about unparalleled performance and reliability to the payment systems of today."

The two organisations have been working together since 2013, to provide Japan with innovative IT infrastructure solutions for the financial services sector. The two organisations will continue in their ambitions to provide a robust technology foundation that can support the increase in demand for contactless payments.
