M2P Fintech co-founder and CEO Madhusudanan R. said, “The consequence of COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the shift from in-person to digital consumption. This shift has forced businesses across the globe to move from brick and mortar to digital channels and, in doing so, has created an urgency for businesses to adopt an API platform like ours.
