Mr. Abdul Naushad, CEO of PayCommerce, stated, "I welcome the Akshay team to PayCommerce. We are excited at adding SWIFT technology and Akshay’s expertise to our payments solutions portfolio. Adding SWIFT to our own payment network has been a critical part of our business strategy and the Akshay acquisition completes this part of our business plan. I look forward to meeting with Akshay clients as we complete our integration process."

Mr. Anant, C.V., Chairman of Akshay Software Technologies Limited, the parent company, stated, "Akshay, with MAS as advisor undertook a lengthy process to explore strategic partners for the U.S. based payments business.

Mr. B.V. Venkat, the senior executive of the Akshay US operation joining PayCommerce, commented, "PayCommerce as a business focused on payments platforms and technology for financial and non-financial institutions across retail and institutional market segments is an incredible opportunity for Akshay clients and staff. Akshay USA has become a business unit of PayCommerce. The Akshay high level of service will continue to our clients but with the opportunity to expand solutions and services as well.” Venkat also added, “We have appreciated for many years the support of Akshay India for the US based payments business. Now we become part of a larger and well capitalized entity whose vision and scope of operations are payments centric and payments related.”

Both companies are customer centric in their solution structuring, services delivery, and orientation to customer satisfaction. This transaction meets the needs of both of the parties and yet continues the ”high level of customer servicing”.
