The go-to payments advisors for leading retailers around the globe.
In 2011, after a career advising banks and merchants on improving payments, Brendan Doyle, Founder & CEO, set out to build a business that would change the global retail payments landscape for the better. The result is CMSPI; using a unique combination of knowledge, data and technology to improve the productivity of payments. This means a better outcome for merchants, payments companies and, ultimately, consumers.
Since then, CMSPI has become the go-to advisory firm for leading merchants across the globe, looking to supercharge their payments arrangements. In 2021, Inflexion, a global private equity firm, invested in our vision, helping to fuel our growth and develop new technologies that will drive future improvements in payments productivity.
We want to create a win-win-win for payments firms, retailers, and their customers. Our mission is all about making payments more productive and therefore – most importantly - helping our clients be successful and grow their businesses.
In 2021, European retailers heard the news: Maestro, Mastercard’s pan-European debit brand, will be retired in July 2023.¹ From that date, Mastercard’s new European debit cards will instead be badged with Mastercard Debit, but the network change is already bringing more than merchants bargained for.
Elior, award-winning catering organisation based out of the UK, partnered with CMSPI to build a data-driven payments strategy designed to reduce costs and deliver innovative payment solutions that enhance the customer experience.
For many businesses across the world, network fees are just a jumble of often-unintelligible words that clutter every payments invoice. But those pesky line items are now one of the biggest challenges merchants face; in North America alone, retailers sunk an estimated $12.5bn into network fees last year.
