As Worldpay doubles in size, the payment giant turns to Citrix Workspace to empower its workforce

Whether shopping in store, online, or on a mobile device, today’s consumers want a seamless payment experience — a fact that perhaps no one understands better than those at Worldpay. Processing more than 40 billion transactions a year, the global payment provider simplifies payments for companies of all sizes around the world. But when Worldpay joined forces with payment giant Vantiv, the new powerhouse needed a way to simplify and unite a disparate IT landscape to fuel future innovation and growth.

Simplifying IT in the midst of change

Doubling the size of a workforce has many advantages — but it also presents challenges for IT. Worldpay turned to Citrix Workspace to manage the complexity of unifying diverse IT systems, quickly onboarding new users, and ensuring an optimal user experience.

“We have people using traditional applications. We have people accessing web-browser-based applications. We have people going to the public internet for SaaS applications,” says Jason Keith Scott-Taggart, Worldpay’s head of business technology services. “We want to give the whole of our enterprise a single place to come to access resources.”

Improving collaboration with Citrix Workspace

With Citrix Workspace, not only has Worldpay been able to provide simple, secure anywhere access to the apps and content people need, but also, it’s enabled a company that’s increasing in size to work together more effectively. “Citrix has really helped us as an organization to innovate because it brings us together, and it allows us to collaborate in a common platform,” Scott-Taggart says.

Redefining productivity with intelligent capabilities

Beyond providing a hub where people can access all the tools they need, Scott-Taggart is looking forward to implementing intelligent capabilities that will shortcut some of the most common things people do with those tools so they can “actually be more engaged and enjoy their work.”
