Trustly and Remote Partner to Align the Future of Finance with the Future of Work

SAN CARLOS, Calif., May 12, 2022 -- Today Trustly, the global leader in Online Banking Payments has partnered with Remote, a leader in building, managing, and supporting global, distributed workforces. Trustly's Open Banking connectivity will deliver on  Remote's needs for high-quality data access to support multiple areas of its business operations including payroll, compliance, and fraud mitigation.

Remote empowers companies of all sizes to pay and manage employees and contractors around the world. Through the Remote platform, clients  can onboard new employees in minutes, pay teams in their preferred currencies, offer benefits and stock options, and remain compliant with local taxes and regulations. As more clients turn to Remote as a partner to transition to the new world of work, Remote looked to Trustly for Open Banking Data and ACH verification technology that could help them provide broad, global coverage, seamlessly identify account types, and ensure payroll processes are executed promptly and securely for their growing customer base.

"As a remote-first company ourselves, the team at Trustly is proud to do their part to help Remote optimize their products and services by leveraging accurate and actionable data via our Open Banking technology," said Ross McFerrin, VP Enterprise Growth at Trustly Americas.

"At Remote, we are committed to continuously improving our robust and secure platform. Leveraging Trustly's capabilities, we can get access to a rich set of Open Banking data that will allow us to quickly verify our US-based customers and focus on what matters most: enabling and supporting their global workforce," said Nikos Theodorou, Senior Director of Payments at Remote.
