Nexi and Microsoft join forces for enterprise digitisation in Italy and Europe

Nexi, the European PayTech, and Microsoft have strengthened their partnership for the digitisation of payments in Europe, first announced
in July 2022. The expanded partnership will see Nexi integrate its digital payment solutions (both in-store and online) within Microsoft solutions, in particular in the Commercial Marketplace, Microsoft’s catalogue of solutions and products for developers and Independent Software Vendors (ISV) platforms, available in more than 100 countries and regions.

Through the partnership, ISVs will be able to provide SMEs and enterprises with comprehensive and vertical management solutions, which will allow them to integrate omni-channel payment acceptance within sophisticated purchasing experiences and business management tools.

ISVs and software developers will be able to leverage the strengths of Nexi’s solutions, including easy integration, and the availability of ‘features’ such as national debit circuits, scalability, security, and tailored partner support. Thanks to Nexi’s integrated payments solutions, ISVs will be able to focus on the user experience and completeness of software solutions, with the PayTech managing complexities including regulatory issues, which are typical of the payments universe.

Microsoft will continue on its path of integrated solutions to support developers, for example in the field of artificial intelligence, working with Nexi to develop features for new use cases like embedded finance.

The two companies will launch joint go-to-market and communication activities, following a one-stop-to-digital approach, including partner evangelisation and technical training activities. The plan will start in Italy and then be extended to other key markets in Europe, such as Germany.
