Samsung SDS has signed a memorandum of understanding with Credorax, an Israel-based fintech and smart payments provider to nations in the European Union and European Economic Area, according to the company on Wednesday.

The two companies will cooperate on Samsung SDS’ Nexledger Universal platform to develop a blockchain-based finance solution for bank and merchants so they can automatically reconcile payments, remittances and invoices with their bank records.

The partners also aim to develop a payment platform using Samsung SDS’ Brity Works, the company’s AI-based solution designed to automate different work processes, it said.

“Together with Credorax, which specializes in payments solutions, Samsung SDS will try to expand its business in the European sectors that seek digital transformation,” said Hong Won-pyo, president and CEO of Samsung SDS, in a statement.

Previously, Samsung SDS made changes to the company’s articles of association, to include e-financing among its business areas, according to a regulatory filing Feb. 18. The company explained that the change was made to assist new platform-based financial businesses that use big data and to increase cooperation with other firms in the industry.
