Payments platform Paysafe has entered into a partnership with mobile development operations company Bitrise.
Leveraging Bitrise’s mobile development platform, Paysafe has automated and accelerated the core mobile practices behind its digital wallets Skrill and NETELLER, which provide popular alternative payment methods for millions of users around the world.
The move to Bitrise has enabled Paysafe to automate and scale the operational processes and workflows that ultimately influence users’ in-app experience leading up to and including payments. Paysafe is now releasing updates to app stores more frequently and faster than ever before, and has exponentially accelerated its app build times from hours to minutes, while also decreasing the overall cost of builds by as much as 50%.
The collaboration with Bitrise has enabled Paysafe to eliminate the need for manual troubleshooting. It now understands more quickly how new pieces of code affect live apps. Working with Bitrise, Paysafe can identify issues that might interfere with the user experience before submitting releases to app stores. Importantly, Paysafe has maintained its high security standards without sacrificing speed. With Bitrise, Paysafe can now automatically run a number of security tests and checks at a faster rate, which frees up developers’ time to focus on driving innovation and efficiency for its consumers.
“Paysafe runs hundreds of builds per week, resulting in thousands of build minutes on a monthly basis. Bitrise has been instrumental in helping us run these builds more efficiently, increasing their overall speed and reducing maintenance efforts,” Sujit Unni, Chief Technology Officer at Paysafe, said.
“At Paysafe we’re committed to attracting and retaining the best developers in the world. When investing in and retaining top-level talent, it is critical not to waste their skills on troubleshooting, waiting to test builds, or manually fixing problems. By automating our processes we’re not only increasing efficiency but also enabling our team to focus on driving innovation – both of which improve the end user experience,” Unni added.
“Moving fast is the only way to succeed in iGaming. And with mobile payments accounting for nearly $132 billion of all digital payments over the last year, the payments part of the mobile process is a very expensive place to be slow. Paysafe continues to be a leader in mobile and iGaming because it has committed to automating every process possible and reserving its talent for innovation. We’re honoured that they have partnered with us to do that,” Barnabas Birmacher, CEO of Bitrise, said.
