“Collaboration is key to establish a secure and reliable digital payment ecosystem”
PayerMax, an omni-method global payments solution supporting more than 350 local payment methods across Southeast Asia, South Asia, MENA and LATAM, made its Asia debut at the Singapore Fintech Festival earlier this month. Sharing the stage with key fintech players like Ant Group, GCash, and Coinbase, PayerMax shared expertise from its strategic playbook on post-covid cross border payments and navigating diverse regulatory landscapes.
Singapore Fintech Festival made its first return as an in-person event since the pandemic, with attendees belonging to key sectors like finance institutions, fintech solutions providers, blockchain, higher education and even policy makers and more. This year, along with SFF’s theme of ‘Building Resilient Business Models amid Volatility and Change’, PayerMax spoke on the evolving digital habits of consumers spurred by the pandemic and how to be future ready. They highlighted that collaboration is the key to shaping the future of digital payments, especially stressing on the need for public and private sectors to work together in the ecosystem.
At a regional level, the digital payments landscape in Southeast Asia is expected to reach US$1.5 trillion by 2030, underscoring the saliency of cashless, contactless, and cross-border payments. Online businesses have mushroomed across Southeast Asia which has made it imperative for the governments to set up a digital payments infrastructure that ensures a safe, secure and reliable ecosystem for all. Leveraging on its partners across Southeast Asia and around the world, PayerMax intends to drive the industry forward by powering businesses to seize opportunities for growth within as well as beyond borders.
“Today, 6 in 10 Southeast Asians remain underbanked or unbanked. Technology is opening doors to newer solutions to enable financial inclusion and we expect to see the digital transformation of banking only grow with time,” says Rinkesh Sharma, Regional Director for PayerMax. “The on-going payments revolution has given way to growth opportunities for microbusinesses and SMEs. But to establish a secure and reliable digital payment ecosystem, collaboration is key. ”
PayerMax empowers global merchants to achieve borderless growth, by providing a full-stack solution where localized payment methods are accepted at scale, within a highly secure, robust and compliant environment.
PayerMax is the world’s leading omni-method global payment solution, with over 350+ payment methods over 5 continents focusing on empowering the #borderless growth of the world’s top grossing digital merchants from developed markets.

United BioChannels Acquires ORFLO Technologies to Expand Market Share and Enhance Customer Engagement
United BioChannels (UBC), a commercial strategy consultancy, announced its acquisition of ORFLO Technologies, LLC, from Gemini Bioproducts. The acquisition represents an opportunity for both ORFLO and UBC to collaboratively increase the commercial presence of ORFLO and build market share using UBC’s Modular Method of developing commercial strategy and tactical execution. ORFLO, a leading manufacturer of cell counting and characterization technologies, will be led by Varshal Davé, UBC’s Managing Partner, who will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer. The acquisition is funded through a collaboration between UBC and BroadOak Capital Partners.
“We are very excited to bring ORFLO Technologies into the United BioChannels family,” said UBC’s President Jeff Whitmore. “ORFLO has historically lacked a strong commercial focus, so our expertise presents an opportunity for a synergistic relationship. We believe that our processes will lead to increased visibility and revenue for ORFLO.”
“We have been tracking the progress of ORFLO Technologies for quite some time,” added Bill Snider, Partner at BroadOak Capital Partners, “and we see some great potential that the UBC team can unlock. ORFLO has a strong market presence and we think UBC’s leadership can only help the company grow.”
Cell and gene therapy, amongst other bioprocessing applications, require robust instrumentation as integral components of their workflow. Cell counters in particular serve critical quality control functions in multiple stages of these complex processes. Ketchum, Idaho, based ORFLO Technologies has excelled in these processes, having been implemented as standard instruments in regulated workflows for many leading bioprocessing companies. With a strong market presence having over 3,000 instruments installed worldwide, ORFLO has an established customer base that the company can build upon under UBC’s leadership.

Singapore's Largest Car-Sharing Platform Tribecar and Charge+ form partnership in a push for green mobility in Singapore
Tribecar aims to electrify its fleet, with support from Charge+’s nationwide EV charging network
Tribecar, Singapore’s largest Car-Sharing platform and Charge+, a leading electric vehicle charging operator serving Southeast Asia, signed a collaboration agreement. Tribecar, with over 1,300 vehicles, plans to electrify its car-sharing fleet and tap on Charge+ as a powerful enabler with its extensive EV charging network across the island.
Charge+ is on track to grow its EV charging network to 1,000 charging points by the end of 2022. This rollout includes fast chargers, which at a power rating of 120kW, are the fastest public charging network in Singapore. In addition, Charge+ is the only EV charging company in Singapore today that has comprehensive EV charging operations across public housing, condominiums, shopping malls and office buildings. This pervasiveness brings added convenience to Tribecar users and eliminates any range anxiety arising from renting an EV.
“The collaboration with Charge+, a key player in the proliferation of EV charging in Singapore, further solidifies our leading position to drive sustainable mobility in Singapore’s car-sharing space. We can now speed up our electrification plans and
strengthen our users’ adoption of EV mobility options by leveraging on Charge+’s extensive EV charging network in the heartlands to improve the overall experience for our customers. A shared mission to advance the state of sustainable mobility in Singapore is what made this an even greater fit for us.” said Adrian Lee, Co-Founder of Tribecar.
“In line with our mission to catalyse electric mobility in Singapore, Charge+ has been playing an instrumental role in spurring electrification in vehicular fleets. As fleets tend to have higher daily mileage, it is vital that fleet vehicles be at the forefront of electrification. Our partnership with leading car-sharing company Tribecar is a strong affirmation of how the pervasive EV charging network by Charge+ can spur EV adoption and make driving an EV convenient and hassle-free.” said Goh Chee Kiong, CEO of Charge+.
This collaboration will benefit members of Tribecar as they get to enjoy attractive charging rates from Charge+. In addition, Tribecar’s EVs in mileage-based categories will be deployed next to Charge+ charging points located in the carparks of many public housing towns. This allows for the ease of charging the vehicles when the vehicle is not on the move.
The cooperation will also see Tribecar promoting the use of Charge+ charging points to its users.
An immediate benefit of an electric fleet for Tribecar users is that they get to enjoy savings on energy costs. As compared to an ICE vehicle, they get to save at least 50% per km in fuel costs when they opt to pay for their own fuel. With Charge+, Tribecar hopes to promote the ease of using an EV charging point, right in the middle of the heartlands where their vehicles have always been deployed.
Tribecar and Charge+ apps are available for download via the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
Tribecar is an innovative and affordable car-sharing platform that provides hourly, daily or weekly car rentals at affordable prices. Founded in 2016, Tribecar currently has over 1,300 vehicles, with its fleet conveniently parked within minutes in the heartlands. It is an affordable transportation alternative, inclusive of insurance, COE, road tax and maintenance. You can book and collect the car at any time of the day, you plan your own trip. No more hassles of owning a car!
Tribecar is the only car-sharing model in Singapore equipped with the private hire and food-delivery insurance and complies with LTA regulations, allowing commercial (driving for GrabCar/Go-jek, food delivery for FoodPanda/Deliveroo or sending delivery for Lalamove/NinjaVan) and/or leisure usages. Tribecar also welcomes p-plate drivers who have just gotten their licence to utilise vehicles within its car-sharing platform.
Charge+ is a leading integrated EV charging solution provider for Singapore and Southeast Asia, with the mission to catalyse the proliferation of electric mobility in the region. Its suite of integrated solutions include a proprietary ultra-slim charger, smart charging software and innovative business models. Executing its roadmap to implement at least 10,000 charging points by 2030, Charge+ is Singapore’s only comprehensive charging operator serving the public housing, condominium, commercial and industrial building segments. With Singapore as the springboard, Charge+ is also operating in Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.
