The online payments sector is one of the most dynamic markets in the financial world. It’s come on leaps and bounds in the past decade, with advancements in technology constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. If merchants are to grow and be successful, they need to present a variety of payment options. Mollie helps merchants tackle this challenge, offering a simple and clear API that offers multiple payment methods in a concise, uniform way. However, beyond the technology, there are a number of compliance, security and risk challenges that the online payments sector faces. When Mollie partnered with SureCloud, the company already had a dedicated risk and compliance function, but its technology supporting the team needed to be modernized if the company was to take advantage of the growth opportunities it had identified. The company’s primary focus was around integrity, IT, cyber, operational and data privacy risk, and Mollie needed a platform to monitor and manage all aspects in an easy, simple way before they began their program expansion. Mollie wanted an end-to-end solution that would allow them to easily link data together and spot control gaps. User experience was of paramount importance, and Mollie wanted an interface that even non-compliance/risk employees would be able to use effectively with minimal training.
SureCloud’s solution is designed to help organisations like Mollie tie disparate processes together, while fully integrating them in an easy-to-use risk and compliance solution. The primary goal is to eliminate duplicate work, lower administrative overhead, eradicate manual reporting, and reduce the need for additional manual communications such as email-based instructions. This results in better record-keeping, easier decision-making, and the ability for the business to demonstrate how risk, compliance, security and data privacy impact the organisation today and any future growth plans. Through SureCloud, businesses can effectively demonstrate and manage regulatory compliance requirements with an interactive dashboard that displays connections to controls assessments, risk and remedial actions.
Within the next year, Mollie hopes to achieve real visibility of risk and compliance throughout the organization, fully automated control monitoring, and a shift in their processes to become more data-driven. These are Mollie’s key metrics of success, and so far, the organization is well on track to achieving them with SureCloud. Eline van der Lugt, Head of Risk at Mollie, said, “In SureCloud, we’re delighted to have found a partner that shares our culture and vision, as well as our appetite for simple, clear communication. SureCloud’s solution has helped us take things to the next level at Mollie. We’re already enjoying better visibility with more detailed information and insights, and this is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what will be possible as we continue with the implementation.” Eline continued, “In an age where compliance and data security are of paramount importance, financial organizations like ours must demonstrate that we’re in control. SureCloud is helping us to gain that control and demonstrate it in a clear, organized way. We’re still in the deployment phase at the moment, but we can already see the incredible potential and we can’t wait to continue to the rollout; the implementation and support team have been extremely helpful.”
