Our Story

Get to know CellPoint Digital

Our origins and evolution

In 2007, it was obvious that travel companies were deeply constrained by their legacy core systems. CellPoint Digital was created to enable travel merchants to break free, to seize the opportunities offered by digital commerce and to compete in a mobile-first world. We created a unique omni-channel digital platform for Danish Rail, integrating advanced payment capability, which was quickly taken up by airlines and other travel businesses.

CellPoint Digital is a pioneer in the development of Payment Orchestration Platforms. Our vision has evolved but our core tenets are the same: we enable our clients to make payments work for them across all their channels and markets.

We have a unique ability to solve the complex payment challenges facing global airlines and now are applying that knowledge and technology to help merchants in other verticals achieve the same kind of results.
