Neu-Isenburg, March 2023 - efcom gmbh (Germany) and MonetaGo (USA) have signed a partnership agreement. In this agreement, both companies confirm that they will integrate the products and services of the other company into their own portfolio and promote them in the best possible way. MonetaGo is one of the world's leading providers of fraud prevention solutions. With Secure Financing, their customers have access to a wide range of options to combat double financing in the context of trade finance. Secure Financing uses state-of-the-art encryption technologies, is internationally recognised by numerous industry organisations and is based on globally applicable standards. MonetaGo is headquartered in New York and has offices in Singapore, Mumbai and London.
"Effective fraud prevention is undoubtedly one of the biggest and most important challenges facing the finance and thus also the factoring industry - every day anew, and this will concern us more rather than less in the future," notes Arnulf Romann, CEO of efcom. "From that perspective, our partnership with MonetaGo is a hugely significant step towards additional confidence in our mature factoring solutions." Neil Shonhard, CEO of MonetaGo also affirms: "Recent events around the world show that we can no longer think in closed ecosystems, but must look at risks across borders. This is where our solutions - in future side by side with efcom - ultimately make a significant contribution to maintaining international supply chains. Not least by enabling key decisions to be made in real time."
MonetaGo's Secure Financing system will be integrated into efcom's solutions (ef3 and efX) in the future. The launch will initially take place in efcom's core markets of Germany, Slovenia and Austria, before expanding across Europe and worldwide.
