At Flow Networks, every payment and every customer is unique, and every transaction is a chance to connect the dots across stakeholders to improve personalization and engagement. At only two years of age and with founders from Visa and PayPal, the company has already managed to start disrupting the payment processing platform space with its innovative approach to payment data and how it’s managed.

As Flow began to build its unique B2B2C payment processing platform, it realized it needed a powerful, event-driven architectural foundation to manage fast streaming data and contextualize data from various sources to empower a richer, more personalized customer experience. For example, to provide real-time recommendations to merchants and customers alike for the next best action following a transaction. Flow chose Confluent Cloud on AWS as the basis for this platform.
