“With Francisco Partners we have found an investment partner that shares our vision for secure and seamless enterprise payments and sees the opportunity in front of us,” commented Asif Ramji, president and CEO of Paymetric. “This partnership will provide the capital and support we need to continue to deliver value to our increasingly diverse global customer base.”
