I look forward to working with the combined team to accelerate transformation across the market.”
The teams will work quickly to unify the two platforms, expanding offerings for all clients and partners while continuing to deliver the high-quality segment specific experiences that both organizations are known for, further solidifying Fortis’ position as the leader in embedded payments for software providers in North America. As part of Fortis, the La Jolla based team will continue to innovate and offer payment solutions tailored to the specialty retail and hospitality markets with the power of Fortis’ enablement, payment facilitation and engagement engine.

This acquisition strengthens our existing tools and infrastructure at Fortis, enabling us to amplify our tech stack for software partners and extend our suite of popular integrations for businesses. Additionally, it improves our ability to enhance the merchant and customer experience with embedded payments.”
With a growing product portfolio and market reach, Fortis is quickly becoming the payment solution of choice for software companies and business leaders who want to make commerce a competitive advantage.
