Demand for technology has skyrocketed since the beginning of the year. This has included software and platforms that facilitate homeworking, IaaS allowing companies to rapidly scale up and cyber security solutions to protect newly created virtual workspaces.
The boom in technology has created an expanding global market as companies are seeking the tools to manage their ongoing challenges and survive, and thrive, in the new landscape. With these new opportunities, there is an increasing need for technology companies to protect their profits and mitigate their foreign exchange risk.
How international payments affect the technology
Technology has always been a global industry. SaaS, PaaS and IaaS solutions dissolved geographic boundaries, but there are still the same practical requirements to manage overseas businesses. This includes the need to exchange currencies for revenue and cover costs from overseas.
International payments can cost your business time and money due to the administration time involved and poor exchange rates, which can damage your bottom line. Rapid expansion could come at a high cost, but by working with a specialist you can manage your foreign exchange exposure and plan your budgets well in advance. This will ultimately enable you to protect your margins.
