B2B businesses working with Nuvei are now able to offer their customers in Canada a holistic payments solution including Card-Not-Present and account-to-account processing capabilities, Level 3 processing and Nuvei’s advanced proprietary accounts receivable (AR) solution, directly integrated with their enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Benefits of Nuvei’s AR solution include simplified workflows and back office efficiencies, unique payment capabilities designed to handle the nuances and complexities of business to business commerce, and shortened invoice to cash cycles.
B2B payments is a rapidly growing sector of the Canadian payments landscape, as well as a requirement for the ongoing growth of many businesses focused on domestic or cross-border commerce in Canada.
Nuvei is leveraging existing deep integrations into many of the leading ERP solution providers operating in Canada through partnerships in other geographies to accelerate its launch in the country.

We’ve had tremendous success supporting our partners and their customers with leading payments solutions in the U.S., so we are thrilled to be expanding our capabilities internationally.”

MeridianLink, Inc., a leading provider of modern software platforms for financial institutions and consumer reporting agencies, today announced its new point-of-sale (POS) solution for MeridianLink® Mortgage as part of the MeridianLink® One platform. MeridianLink® Mortgage Access meets borrowers’ demands for a more frictionless digital lending and account opening experience.
The highly configurable POS solution for mortgage origination looks to assist financial institutions to slash their application and approval times for consumers. Additionally, the product further strengthens MeridianLink’s innovative SaaS-based mortgage loan origination system by seeking to enhance the borrower’s experience and significantly increase efficiencies.
“In today’s economy, borrowers expect to be engaged in their financial experience, whether it’s checking their account balance, transferring money, or originating a mortgage,” said JP Kelly, SVP of Mortgage at MeridianLink. “Mortgage Access functions to make it easy for borrowers to buy or refinance their loans, reduce the friction in the mortgage experience, and decrease turnaround times. In doing so, these efforts will create a smoother process for consumers.”
The Mortgage Access launch comes at a time when American consumers expect an increased level of support from their financial institutions. A recent study conducted by MeridianLink discovered that one third of Americans (31%) feel less confident in their ability to afford a home compared to five years ago, and 41% of respondents believed their financial institution did not provide them with sufficient mortgage lending support.
The launch of Mortgage Access adds to MeridianLink Mortgage, the Company’s mortgage loan origination system (LOS) with a natively built product and pricing engine and automated underwriting. Other features of the LOS include the capability for financial institutions to customize user interfaces and automate workflows, manage electronic document packages, and access hundreds of partner integrations. The Mortgage Access product completes MeridianLink’s mortgage lending platform, delivering an end-to-end digital mortgage experience.
Mortgage Access is the latest offering in a series of investments MeridianLink has made to further grow and improve its product offerings related to mortgage lending. In late 2022, MeridianLink acquired OpenClose™, an award-winning provider of residential mortgage software, to offer omnichannel mortgage solutions and leading POS capabilities that improve efficiency while reducing costs and time to close. In March 2023, both MeridianLink and OpenClose received a HousingWire Tech100 Mortgage Award in recognition of their best-in-class mortgage lending products.
MeridianLink® powers digital lending and account opening for financial institutions and provides data verification solutions for consumer reporting agencies. MeridianLink’s scalable, cloud-based platforms help customers build deeper relationships with consumers through data-driven, personalized experiences across the entire lending life cycle.
MeridianLink enables customers to accelerate revenue growth, reduce risk, and exceed consumer expectations through seamless digital experiences. Its partner marketplace supports hundreds of integrations for tailored innovation. For more than 20 years, MeridianLink has prioritized the democratization of lending for consumers, businesses, and communities.

GK today announced its latest solution, GK Engage, a modern, comprehensive and AI-powered loyalty program for every omnichannel retail touch point. This solution empowers retailers to create highly contextualized and personalized outreach including messaging, discounts and rewards that improve customer lifetime value and enrich a retailer’s competitive differentiation. GK Engage was announced at GK’s first-ever Retail Innovation Summit for the Americas, which is taking place Sept. 25-26 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Attendees can view GK Engage, alongside other GK solutions, at the newly unveiled GK Customer Experience Center.
GK is a world leader in point-of-sale (POS) technology and, as a result, its product team has talked with retailers who wanted more out of their loyalty systems. To fill this gap, GK developed GK Engage, a modern take on loyalty. The solution draws inspiration from two successful GK solutions, MCA, GK’s mobile loyalty program, and T+ Loyalty. These predecessor technologies have serviced more than one billion transactions per year for over six million registered users. Now, GK Engage customers will reap these benefits at scale using one comprehensive platform that works across a diverse range of online and in-store retail touch points.
GK Engage provides retailers with real-time, AI-driven, personalized loyalty offers that surprise and delight customers. The complete solution creates loyalty tiers that automatically track all customer interactions and generate relevant campaigns to safeguard long-term retailer relationships and customer lifetime value. GK Engage can be integrated with merchandise master data and customer data to ensure all recommendations, promotions, coupons and more are beneficial to the individual customer, as well as the retailer’s current inventory availability and financial goals.
What’s more, GK Engage is already integrated into GK’s OmniPOS solution across all touch points including traditional POS, self-checkout kiosks, mobile, and frictionless store technology like GK GO.
“GK Engage was created for any retailer, regardless of where they are in their loyalty journey,” said Michael Jaszczyk, chief digital transformation officer, GK and CEO, GK Americas. “The solution is extremely flexible. For some retailers, GK Engage will serve as a complete solution, while others may integrate the solution into a CRM or an existing customer offer system. I look forward to presenting GK Engage alongside our other innovative solutions at the now unveiled GK Customer Experience Center.”
Today and tomorrow, GK customers and partners from across the U.S., Latin America and Canada are gathering at GK’s US headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina to take part in the 2023 GK Retail Innovation Summit. In addition to hearing from renowned retail experts like Greg Buzek, founder and president, IHL Group, attendees can visit GK’s new Customer Experience Center.
The center showcases GK technology and allows viewers to envision a modern, efficient and exceptional shopper experience across various key touch points including the point-of-sale, the fuel pump and the e-commerce site. At the Customer Experience Center, prospective retail customers can hear from solution experts who will help them to design the best solution deployment for their end-customers. The technology featured in the center includes GK Engage, GK OmniPOS, self check-out, GK Drive, GK GO, GK AIR (artificial intelligence for retail) and fraud prevention solutions from Fujitsu, which invested in GK as a strategic investor earlier this year.
GK breaks down the barriers to unified commerce with its open CLOUD4RETAIL platform and a broad portfolio based on it, like OmniPOS for point of sale, mobile POS, mobile customer engagement and a full range of store/back-office solutions. The company is a recognized leader in omnichannel retail, offering a single, global software platform for all retail formats and touch points. Ten of the Top 50 retailers worldwide rely on GK, and GK is the fastest growing global POS provider in new installations over the last three years. For more information, visit www.gk-software.com.
