Proprietary Analytics and ISO Tracking

Utilizing NXGEN proprietary software, a workflow management software that delivers robust CRM, easy cloud based app submissions, commissions reporting, and full access reporting, run your business from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

World’s Only Truly Global MSP Network

Most companies that say they are global usually mean online processing. NXGEN is the ONLY payment solution provider with a global footprint in 30 countries and counting. We have local teams on the ground to help install terminals and ready to go door to door to service merchants at a moment’s notice.

Built Differently

From the beginning, NXGEN was built for multi-engine growth. Through careful planning and forward thinking, we built our software to support multi-currency and foreign bank accounts, built multi-lingual management teams, set up satellite offices, and customized technology to further our global expansion.


Just like a multi-engine jet vs. a single engine airplane, you must build the plane from the ground up to be able to withstand the added pressure, power, and speed. NXGEN has done just that:

  1. North America (sales and operations)
  2. Europe (sales and operations)
  3. Latin America (sales and operations)
  4. Fidano (software and technology)

All Other MSPs

Most MSPs only have one growth strategy – US domestic sales – NXGEN has built a company structure designed to withstand future growth, market uncertainty, and future disruptive technologies with our four core company entities (and growing).
