Increasingly major merchants recognise the importance of improving their customer’s payments journey to deliver a best-in-class service, enabling new sales and ensuring customer retention.


For many traditional merchants, their legacy outsourced gateways are reaching end of life. Most have a pressing need for new concepts and functionality to support new payments methods and deliver instore and online innovation. PSE has helped a wide range of major supermarkets, retail chains and digital marketplaces innovate and redesign their front-end infrastructures, develop new operating models, improve reconciliation and settlement processes, and implement end-to-end transformation programs. PSE has also supported the selection of new suppliers and helped build business cases to deliver much improved services, automation, reduced costs and improved efficiency.

Case study

Fraud and the dark web 


To support a global digital media provider in selecting a dark web monitoring partner  


PSE undertook a wide ranging review of suppliers who asses the dark web in order to identify and priorities potential companies for an RFP. PSE then managed the RFP process including: 

  • Requirements definition  
  • 3 year cost of ownership analysis  
  • Supplier credential validation/interviews  
  • Supplier presentations and Q&A’s 
  • Weighted response analysis and client feedback  
  • Final recommendations  

The client selected the supplier with the best fit to their requirements and subsequently substantially reduced their dark web risk exposure.
