Mumbai, February 8, 2024: PayU, India’s leading payment solutions provider, today announces it has successfully migrated its credit service, LazyPay, to Thought Machine’s cloud-native core banking platform, Vault Core, and is now live. This partnership has enabled LazyPay to build innovative lending and credit products, deliver a superior, secure, and efficient user experience, and set a new standard for credit financing in India.

LazyPay migrated its existing customers to Vault Core within just one year. In addition, Vault Core has streamlined PayU’s real-time financial statement generation and simplified multi-account management, providing a unified view of products. Furthermore, Vault Core’s real-time Ledger has improved PayU’s reporting and regulatory requirements.

PayU’s India credit revenue grew by 31%, totaling US$43 million, and loan book size grew by 66% to US$338 million by the end of September 2023. A total of US$362 million in credit was issued during the first half of 2024 (1H24).

With Vault Core, PayU can effortlessly create differentiated and personalized financial products at scale. Following the successful initial migration project, PayU plans to continue migrating more products and using Vault Core to build, test and deploy innovative lending and credit products.
