"Melio is honored to be recognized by the FinTech Breakthrough Awards as a leading B2B payments platform," said Melio Chief Business Officer Prashant Gandhi. "Small businesses have three pain points – manual back-office work, cash flow crunch, and limited time to learn any technologies. I am very proud of our team for building a solution that addresses these issues. We are also thankful to the financial institutions, software providers, and merchant acquirers who are embedding Melio within their digital interface, enabling their small business customers to enjoy a fully native B2B payments experience in their platform of choice."
