PSI History

Payment Solutions International was founded in 2008. The biggest challenge is the poor access to information and the lack of trust between the Lenders and Borrowers in the market that tilts the power to credit providers.

The PDMS tool was designed with a view to improving information symmetry thus make sure that the employee’s salary becomes an asset that he/she can use to improve his/her life. In the seven years that have followed its launch, the company has invested extensively in developing and honing its technology, to ensure that it can deliver an efficient, reliable service to its clients. During this time, the team responsible for the Payment Deduction Management System (PDMS) have also increased their staff complement, bringing on board the talents of senior executives and IT professionals to strategize innovations and improvements to both the product and the company.
