EFM Asset Management Supports Payment Processor as Major Program Launches Take Shape for 2020

QRails, a cloud-based, open API issuer-processor that enables innovative payment solutions around the world, announced the closing of a $8 million Series A funding round led by EFM Asset Management. The announcement comes as QRails, in partnership with payroll service providers, is about to launch a novel earned wage access solution in North America, Europe and Australia. This fundraising round brings total funds raised to date by QRails to $18 million.

Less than a year after launching its processor and after co-founder Gerard Griffin took the helm as CEO, QRails has won significant customer mandates on the strength of its technology, its domain knowledge and its commitment to customer service. QRails customers include fintechs, banks, and insurance companies. The company is about to launch an innovative instant pay solution, available globally on a white-label basis to human capital management, workforce capital management and payroll processing platforms. With its first customer, QRails will be providing instant access to accrued wages to more than one million hourly employees, enabling up to $20 billion in annual payments when the solution is fully deployed.

We look forward to continuing to power payments innovation within financial services, including instant wage payments, open banking and the digital payment of insurance claims.”
