Global payment services company Worldline has agreed to migrate its operations to Google Cloud Platform as a part of its “Move to Cloud” program. Following this partnership, the payment service company will use Google’s Could Infrastructure and Google's data analytics and AI offerings to develop new payment products and systems. In exchange, Google will use Worldline as one of its key payment providers in Europe and will have access to support for more payment networks and cross-border conversion.

Gilles Grapinet, CEO of Worldline, said, “To trailblaze changing payment environments and not only meet but anticipate customer expectations, it is key to couple our Paytech DNA with the technological capabilities of a true market leader. We are very proud to expand and strengthen our partnership as a payment provider for Google in Europe. Our deep market infrastructure understanding, combined with Google Cloud's technology expertise and scale, will accelerate our time-to-market and drive tangible success for our customers and markets."

Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian added, “Our partnership with Worldline underscores the wide range of opportunities that secure and reliable cloud technology, data analytics, and AI can bring to merchants and financial institutions. By bringing together the strengths of our two companies, we can accelerate innovation in the payment industry."
