Saudi Payments selected IBM Global Business Services, the services and consultancy arm of IBM, to lead the project as the System Integrator partner and an end-to-end digital payments solutions provider.

IBM GBS designed the solution, built a technical platform and integrated Mastercard's instant payments platform into Saudi Payments' existing infrastructure while connecting it to the IT systems of locally operating banks.
