Slide A world of difference for BPAY Group. Customer Story: BPAY Group Case studies banner image

Situation.

As a key enabler of the Australian economy, BPAY Group processes over $400 billion in online payments each year, and constantly invests in its platforms to deliver trusted and innovative services. As their internal data centres were approaching the end of usability, taking the leap into the cloud was the obvious step, and there were three primary concerns.

Security

As a brand, BPAY has 98% name recognition and strong consumer trust, so data integrity and security were not optional for BPAY Payments.

Capacity

Launching the new service Osko –a peer-to-peer payment product that allows anyone to instantly and securely move funds between banks – was planned to more than double BPAY Group’s transaction load.

Sustainability

The potential to reduce inefficiencies, use of ageing data centres and BPAY Group’s overall energy consumption.

"BPAY Group has achieved a substantial reduction in our energy costs in three years from 2017 to 2020. Choosing to partner with Macquarie Cloud Services, migrating to private cloud and co-location services, has helped us to achieve such a large reduction."
