Fraedom and UMB plan to create a new mobile app and launch it in the first half of next year. The new solution is intended to provide mobile first experience that supports current browser-based platform.

Wilson added: “This solution allows us to evolve the platform to support the growth we are experiencing with our card portfolio.

“By partnering with Fraedom, we aim to alleviate the complexity associated with managing a card programme for our end customers and at the same time drive adoption and automation of processes and payments.”

Earlier this year, Visa acquired Fraedom in a bid to expand its suite of solutions for addressing the needs of B2B payments industry.
