The Fintech Story

Pioneering Efficiencies from Grain to Glass

Fintech, a pioneering business solutions provider, has been dedicated to serving the beverage alcohol industry for over 32 years. Supported by TA Associates and General Atlantic, Fintech stands as a foremost leader in this sector. Its flagship product, PaymentSource®, is leveraged by over 225,000 retail and hospitality businesses, and more than 5,000 alcohol distributors and suppliers nationwide. This proven platform automates alcohol invoice payment, streamlines payment collection, and facilitates comprehensive data capture for over 1 million B2B business relationships.

Expanding its success beyond the realms of alcohol sales, Fintech has broadened the scope of PaymentSource. Originally designed for alcohol invoice management, the platform now accommodates all B2B purchase transactions for its clients, extending its efficiency and reliability across diverse business product needs.

Recognizing the distinct operational hurdles faced by clients engaged in alcohol sales, Fintech has extended its offerings beyond invoice services. This includes scan-based trading capabilities tailored for retail clients and their vendors, along with a dedicated CRM solution crafted to bolster field execution strategies for alcohol suppliers and distributors.

Established in 1991, Fintech operates from its headquarters in Tampa, Florida, continually evolving to meet the dynamic needs of its clientele.
