GoCardless, a global firm focused on bank payment solutions, has integrated with Zapier, the key player supporting no-code automation, in order “to help businesses save time and energy when managing their payments.”
Businesses can now “build Zaps — Zapier’s automated workflows — for GoCardless, eliminating manual labor for routine and repetitive tasks, such as creating a new payment mandate or tracking failed payments.”
Zapier’s platform “includes over 5,000 apps, making it easy for businesses to connect GoCardless to the software they use every day.”
Seb Hempstead, VP of Partnerships at GoCardless, said:
“Our mission is to take the pain out of getting paid. That’s why we’re excited to partner with Zapier, helping businesses tap into real-time information flows to turn manual admin into automated processes. This will give them more time to focus on their top priorities. And it’s simple to use – there’s no code involved.”
Businesses can “find the new GoCardless integration on the Zapier App Directory page and learn more on the GoCardless landing page.”
The announcement “adds another leading name to GoCardless’ roster of more than 350 partners.”
These partnerships “allow businesses to seamlessly integrate GoCardless into the software they already use, managing payment and other business activities in one place.”
As covered recently, former CEO, CPO and CTO of Nordigen are expected to hold leadership roles in data, connectivity and engineering as integration of the two companies continues.
GoCardless, a global firm focused on bank payment solutions, has “appointed three executives from open banking provider Nordigen, which it acquired last year, to its leadership team.”
Rolands Mesters, co-founder and former Chief Executive Officer at Nordigen, is now Vice President of Bank Account Data at GoCardless.
Fellow co-founder Roberts Bernans, previously Chief Product Officer at Nordigen, has been named Vice President of Connectivity, and former Nordigen Chief Technology Officer Jake Sebastian-Jones has joined the Product team as a Director of Engineering.
Mesters and Bernans will “lead key areas of the business as the fintech unicorn seeks to capitalise on the $400 billion global open banking opportunity and become a leading provider of open banking data solutions.”
In his new role, Mesters will “lead GoCardless’ new Bank Account Data group, helping more businesses to use open banking data to offer new services, make quicker and more efficient decisions and reduce fraud.”
Bernans will be “responsible for building and scaling GoCardless’ connections to payment schemes around the world and rapidly expanding its open banking connectivity footprint.”
The ex-Nordigen team will “play a pivotal role in transforming GoCardless into a leading open banking provider for any business that wants to tap into open banking data or payments.”
