The restructuring efforts are in line with Simpl’s overarching goal of achieving profitability by mid-2025. Despite the difficult decision, affected employees will be provided with severance pay equivalent to two months’ salary, along with additional compensation based on their duration of service at Simpl. Furthermore, the company has extended medical insurance coverage and outplacement services to assist impacted individuals during this transitional phase.

Established in 2016, Simpl has established a significant presence in the fintech landscape, catering to more than 26,000 merchants, including industry giants such as Zomato, MakeMyTrip, and Big Basket.

This strategic restructuring is aimed at optimizing Simpl’s operational framework and strengthening its financial footing. By streamlining processes and rationalizing expenses, Simpl endeavors to enhance efficiency and drive sustainable growth. The company remains focused on delivering value to its stakeholders while navigating the evolving dynamics of the fintech ecosystem.

Despite the workforce reduction, Simpl continues to invest in its core capabilities and innovative offerings. The company remains agile and adaptive, leveraging its expertise to capitalize on emerging opportunities and address evolving market demands. Simpl remains optimistic about the future trajectory of the fintech industry and is poised to emerge stronger from this restructuring phase.
