Smartpay is Australia and New Zealand’s leading independent fintech, with over a decade of experience in payment technologies. We develop customised payment solutions used by our customers and partners across multiple industries, enabling frictionless payment integration and EFTPOS solutions with a strong focus on delivering a seamless customer experience.

What has been the company's biggest milestone to date?

We recently released our Smart Connect platform which is an efficient, scalable and secure cloud-based API integrator platform. It pairs any API-enabled payment initiator, to any compatible payment termination device and is suitable in both traditional and non-traditional markets.

What’s your most useful advice for having a productive day?

Start the day with some exercise; it focuses the mind and body, setting you up for a productive day.

Where do you see the company in 12 months?

We see a fantastic opportunity for disrupting the payments value chain and providing merchants, suppliers and corporate customers easy, secure and simple cloud-based integration capability. We would see this part of our business growing significantly in the next 12 months.

Which book has had the most influence on your professional mindset?

I’m a big fan of history – any book that shares lessons from the past can help us make better decisions in the future.
