Rapyd는 이번 새로운 투자금을 바탕으로 모든 상업 용도에 핀테크와 결제 역량을 신속하게 통합하도록 기업을 지원하는 통일된 클라우드 기반 기술 플랫폼을 계속 구축할 계획이다. 또한, 이번에 유치한 자금은 신용카드를 넘어 다양한 현지 결제 방법으로 40억 명이 넘는 소비자를 지원함으로써, 현지와 국제 시장에서 확장을 단행하도록 기업을 돕는 Rapyd 국제 결제망을 더욱 견실하게 구축하는 데에도 사용될 예정이다. Rapyd는 전자상거래 매장, 긱 경제 플랫폼, 금융기관 및 고도로 현지화된 고객 경험을 지원하고자 하는 기술 공급업체 사이에서 증가하고 있는 세계적인 핀테크와 상업 현대화 흐름을 위한 길을 견인하고 있다.

Oak HC/FT 공동설립자 겸 상무이사 Tricia Kemp는 "금융 서비스가 점점 디지털화되고 세계화됨에 따라, Rapyd의 서비스로서의 핀테크 접근 방식은 매우 큰 성장 잠재력이 있다"라며 "현지와 국제 디지털 결제의 복잡성을 해결하도록 기업을 지원함으로써, 금융 서비스 부문에서 가장 큰 문제 중 하나를 해결하는 Rapyd 팀을 지원하고, 이 팀과 손을 잡게 돼 매우 기쁘게 생각한다"라고 말했다.

Tiger Global Management 파트너 Scott Shleifer는 "Rapyd에 투자하면서 큰 기대를 걸고 있다"며 "Rapyd는 세계 인터넷 기업이 신흥 시장에서 현지 결제를 지원하는 능력을 높이도록 돕는다. Arik과 그가 이끄는 팀을 비롯해 Rapyd가 구축한 차별화된 플랫폼에서 깊은 인상을 받았다"라고 말했다.

Rapyd는 별도의 여러 현지 결제 시스템을 연계하는 복잡성을 관리하고, 모든 유형의 현지 결제 방식을 통합하며, 현지 규제와 준수 요건을 충족시킴으로써 통일된 단일 플랫폼에서 다양한 상업이나 핀테크 응용 유형을 위한 현지와 국제 기업의 확장을 지원한다.
