The Serrala Group, fintech company and provider of payment software, has acquired the majority of the shares of AcceptEasy, a Dutch software-as-a-service provider (SaaS) for digital payment functions for both online and offline business relationships.
The acquisition of AcceptEasy is the fifth acquisition in four years for Serrala. The strategic takeover aims to expand Serrala’s SaaS range in the areas of EBPP and RTP solutions in the B2C and increasingly in the B2B environment. It will also strengthen Serrala’s offerings in connectivity and digital payment methods.
AcceptEasy was founded in 2006 and offers an omnichannel SaaS solution for electronic invoice digitization and processing. The cloud-based platform enables payments through unique request-to-pay links via contextual communication channels, i.e. email or WhatsApp. Recipients can immediately pay using local or international payment methods and receive an instant confirmation.
The management team will remain on board after the acquisition and will be responsible for and further expand the Request-to-Pay (RTP) and Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment (EBPP) business within the group. The company’s office in Amstelveen near Amsterdam will be retained and further expanded in the future.
Serrala excited to welcome AcceptEasy
“The acquisition of AcceptEasy is an important step for Serrala, as it further extends our expertise in offering ‘order-to-cash’ inbound payments automation for corporations globally”, says Sven Lindemann, CEO of Serrala. “AcceptEasy’s solutions meet the complex requirements of alternative payment methods through advanced invoice digitization and a smooth collection process.”
Peter Kwakernaak, CEO of AcceptEasy, says, “We are thrilled to expand our market position under the Serrala umbrella. With the help of our cloud-based software, Serrala’s customers can now build seamless customer payment journeys on connectivity and integration. Furthermore, this will pave the path for organizations to benefit even more from increased bank connectivity in the PSD2 and instant payment environments.”
