Judopay launches Sho~dan to shake up the tech landscape and enable rapid innovation
The platform, built with a cloud native architecture and automation engineering, enables payment processing with peerless performance and reliability
London, UK, 31st January 2022- Judopay, the leading mobile payments provider, today announces the launch of a next generation technology platform, Sho~dan. Built with a cloud native architecture, the platform has allowed Judopay to forge ahead in the market and further enables innovations such as Judopay’s payment orchestration. This will allow for peerless performance and reliability, whatever the volume, time of day, or wherever the location.
The new platform allows for scalable, robust, and consistent software delivery, focusing on maximising merchants’ business agility. These traits are essential for merchants as they continually look to adopt solutions that not only perform but enable rapid scale and innovation. Legacy players with dated tech stacks are struggling to keep up with these market advances, and just 1% of Financial Institutions have the entirety of their IT or payments systems in the cloud. With its latest offering, Judopay are working to support the industry in growing this figure.
Sho~dan uniquely equips developers with a central toolkit to build microservices, accommodating a reference standard of common service templates and rich programming paradigms to enable the rapid, frequent and reliable delivery of large, complex applications.
Merchants benefit from faster access to the latest products and features, as Sho~dan’s infrastructure is built to upgrade and launch in record time. Furthermore, with each project auto-embedded with standards that have been thoroughly tested and certified, the platform offers rapid delivery to the highest quality, security requirements, and regulatory compliance.
The solution is optimised for pay-tech, with all of Judopay’s Alternative Payment Methods (APMs), including PayPal, Klarna and Pay by Bank App, now backed by Sho~dan. This illustrates the ability of a seamless transition from Judopay’s existing processing platform and allows its customers to benefit from access to the latest products and features, and best-in-class quality.
Speaking on the launch, Robert Howes, CTO at Judopay, says: “Here at Judopay we are continually working to enhance our technology and solutions for our customers, which is why we are extremely excited to be launching Sho~dan – a new standard in payment tech. After executing a data centre exit to Google Cloud Platform in 2019, we have gone from minimal to complete Cloud Native adoption with this solution, allowing a degree of global performance, resilience and scale that is unprecedented within the industry.”
