SINGAPORE, Dec. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Proxtera is established to realize Business Sans Border (BSB), an initiative of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA). Proxtera has developed into a global public-private partnership, demonstrating a collaborative effort between Singapore, India, Philippines, and Africa. Today, Proxtera launches its innovative technology solution that enables small and medium-sized enterprises to digitally trade beyond borders in the underserved wholesale e-commerce market space.

Proxtera is ready to share its network with the world

Proxtera has on-boarded several pilot platforms, and successfully facilitated live trades, cross platforms, and cross countries. It will enable mutually beneficial trade relations in a digital future.

Proxtera empowers B2B platforms and service providers to instantly access new business opportunities by connecting them to a global network, proclaiming it as a single experience to the global ecosystem. Proxtera enables B2B platforms to now connect to a plethora of new buy-and-sell options and new services to complete their trade journey, while enhancing their business without ever having to leave their existing B2B platform.

Proxtera offers seamless integration and smart matching through its open Application Programming Interface (API), smart recommendation, and matching of platforms for service providers; including those from banks, FinTech's, and logistics through its AI Machine Learning core.

For interested participants and ecosystems seeking to benefit from Proxtera's network effect but lacking a digital platform, they allow integration with third-party open solution providers to enable digitalization and onboarding. For example, Proxtera worked with the Trade Promotion Council of India (TPCI) to develop a Proxtera-connected digital platform. This helps TPCI enhance its members' connectivity and reach internationally allowing TPCI to increase its brand and the product reach for its members exponentially. Proxtera's open network will continue to grow with new platforms in 2021 and beyond. Uniquely positioned to be a robust digital store of financial and trade-related services to enhance the end-to-end trading experience.
