Amsterdam, March 21, 2022 – Intwo, a world-leading managed service provider of Microsoft cloud technology, today announced a partnership with PPRO, the leading provider of digital payments infrastructure, to help build and manage its global payments network as the company continues its international expansion.
A Partner to Meet PPRO’s High Standards
As PPRO scaled its services to manage more transactions and serve more customers, it needed a partner that could meet their high standards for licensing and data security, keep its systems up to date, and act as a single point of contact for Microsoft Dynamics and IT operations. In addition, as PPRO was working towards getting its CSSF licensing, they needed a partner that was SOC 1, Type 2 compliant.
Intwo Ticked All the Boxes
When PPRO went to market for an IT partner, Intwo ticked all the boxes. To start, its SOC 1, Type 2 compliance, as well as its top Microsoft accreditations, made us a great candidate from a due diligence perspective. What was also appealing to the PPRO team was that Intwo delivers a redundant, highly secure cloud infrastructure at a global scale, with a local presence in key PPRO markets across the Americas, Europe and Asia.
Minimize Risk and Maximize Performance
To date, Intwo has already worked closely with PPRO to provide meaningful results. We’ve designed a redundant MS Dynamics 365 BC environment that complies with the applicable financial regulatory requirements and PPRO’s growth ambition. This approach has many benefits as it minimizes risk and maximizes performance. As part of our service level agreement, PPRO also has access to a dedicated Intwo customer success manager to ensure PPRO’s current and future needs are constantly met. And, per the CSSF requirements, the team has contractual rights to audit Intwo with the help of a third party.
Our teams are passionate about solving business problems with business applications in professional services. And the agile culture of both companies proved to be a great basis for a real partnership. We look forward to helping PPRO realize the expansion of their global service.

A Bright Future With Strong Partnership
Today, PPRO has a scalable, secure, redundant, and high-performing business application solution that provides its financial department with reliable, real-time data for business insights, reporting, and analytics purposes. With the new Dynamics 365 cloud-based platform, the PPRO team is positioned to roll out the long-anticipated Document-Management-System ELO. These are all changes that frame a bright future for PPRO and Intwo as strong, collaborative partners in the fintech industry.
We’re excited about the partnership between PPRO and Intwo as they become our global MS Dynamics partner. I’m looking forward to driving our data availability to the next level in the finance department.
