The human arsenal might be as expansive as one could possibly imagine, but it has still never possessed anything more valuable that tendency of ours to grow on a consistent basis. This is because the stated tendency has already got us to hit upon some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a pretty major member of the group. The reason why technology enjoys such an esteemed stature among people is, by and large, based on its skill-set, which ushered us towards a reality that nobody could have ever imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, if we look a little bit deeper, it will become clear how the whole was also very much inspired from the way we applied those skills across a real-world setting. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence, and consequentially, kickstarted a tech revolution. This revolution, as we discovered, went on to scale up the human experience from all conceivable directions, but even after achieving such a monumental feat, technology will somehow continue to deliver the right goods. The same has grown to become a lot more evident in recent times, and assuming a new collaboration works out like envisioned, it should only make that trend bigger and better moving forward.

Ding, a global leader of mobile top-up service, has officially selected Gr4vy’s cloud-native payment orchestration platform (POP) to offer a diverse set of payment methods at the checkout, as well as increase flexibility in other related areas. This, on a more granular level, means leveraging the platform to connect with leading PSPs (payment service providers), and doing so without any code whatsoever. Apart from it, Ding will also use the stated platform for delivering that core infrastructure which is integral in terms of addressing PCI compliance and fulfilling all global payment data regulations. But why did it pick San Mateo-based Gr4vy? Well, the answer talks to the company’s unmatched technological prowess. You see, Gr4vy’s cutting-edge payment orchestration layer makes it possible for merchants to deploy, manage, customize, and optimize any payment method they deem fit in an individual case. Moving on from the operational value, the solution also lets you access multiple Gr4vy instances across the cloud, thus significantly reducing the potential points of failure.

“Meeting customer demand for new ways to pay can be both challenging and complex. Added to this complexity is the ability to keep customer payment data secure while still meeting current and future payment data regulations,” said John Lunn, Founder and CEO of Gr4vy. “We’ve built our cloud-native POP with the utmost concern for merchants and their customers’ payment needs and data security. Ding shares this same commitment to payment diversification and security. We’re pleased to partner with Ding as they continue to build the safest, simplest, most convenient top-up service for mobile anywhere.”

Another reason why this could be a big deal is, of course, centered upon Ding’s stature. Founded back in 2006, Ding has successfully sent over 500 million top-ups via its official app and through 600,000+ retail outlets worldwide. To give you a snapshot of the company’s size, it delivers a top-up every second via more than 850 operators across 150-plus countries.

“The partnership with Gr4vy will support Ding’s payment strategy and expansion plans, removing the complexity of offering new payment types and accelerating speed to market when entering new markets,” said Micheál Egan, Head of Payments at Ding. “Ding chose Gr4vy’s cloud-first API offering as it stood out from other payment orchestration providers, allowing us to be more flexible and agile in supporting Ding’s long-term goals.”
