We are sharing some of the key learning Quisk has gained from building a next-generation digital payments/FinTech SaaS platform from scratch. While there are some common design themes and architectural patterns employed to build enterprise-grade SaaS platforms, there are also very specific demands on fintech startups that focus on selling to banks and other financial institutions. Quisk’s SaaS platform interfaces with multiple entities, end-user consumers, issuing banks, merchants, acquirers, processors, etc., with each entity having its own unique requirements and expectations. We are describing how we have built and delivered a holistic platform that satisfied these diverse customer needs.

Key takeaways:

  • Architecture models for B2B2C-oriented fintech SaaS platforms
  • Security considerations in cloud-based fintech platforms
  • Performance and scalability considerations in next-generation fintech platforms
