Kalixa are able to offer retailers and other omni-channel merchants a full suite of end-to-end services: in-store, online and mobile payment processing and acquiring solutions.  All delivered from a single integrated technology platform. One contract, one partner.  It really couldn’t be simpler.

In addition, they offer e-wallet, money transfer services and pre-paid cards, together with value-added services such as fraud management, risk mitigation, chargeback handling, reconciliations, and a wide scoped ‘alternative payment’ suite.  Perfect for domestic and international trade.

Our work with Kalixa

Digital Works Consulting initially worked closely with Kalixa to help develop their 5 year growth strategy, successfully applying our strategic planning and development methodology. We then helped bridge early gaps in sales, new product development and core system deployment. And we have subsequently provided further assistance in acquisition target insight and planning, with appropriate follow-on due-diligence.

“Clear expertise in strategy development, knowledge of the emerging payments industry, flexible/ inclusive approach, all delivered on time and to budget, made for a great experience.” Ed Chandler, CEO Kalixa
