How Jan is building a better working world

“I am helping to build a better working world by supporting clients in turning payment into a more convenient, secure and cost-efficient process. The results can be experienced every day through new, innovative and better ways of paying.

The way we pay is changing dramatically. Established markets are being disrupted by new means of paying, developing markets are leapfrogging to new payment technologies.

Incumbents and challengers in these markets require deep industry insights and innovative ideas at the same time to navigate these changes. Successful players act upon them and improve the way we pay every day.”
