Payment solutions provider

CR7 is a payment solutions provider formed in 2013 by Simon Wilding, an experienced executive in the field of card payment processing. He created an entirely new payment processing IT platform called Optomany, building in many innovative next-generation features.  

 

Processing growth through key acquisitions

Livingbridge completed an investment in CR7 supporting the management team’s acquisition of 123Send. 123Send, based in London, is a UK provider of point-of-sale terminals and services. Its focus is providing point of sale terminals that operate using mobile/GPRS for merchants requiring a wireless, remote or mobile facility. It offers a fully managed service that includes terminal logistics, integration support and customer help desk.

Going forwards Livingbridge will support CR7 to launch and roll out its new next generation payment processing technology, firstly in the UK and then internationally. 

 

 “To bring 123Send into the CR7 Services family is tremendously exciting as a first step in our UK strategy, as is our relationship with Livingbridge who have been an absolute pleasure to work with. We look forward to growing the group together at pace over the coming years.”
