About Modo

Our Company

Modo is a payments technology company based in Richardson, Texas. Modo was founded by Bruce Parker and a small group of friends in 2010. Originally the company was created to enable consumers to combine different forms of value (coupons, loyalty points, gift cards, offers) on their mobile phone to pay in store. Since inception, Modo has evolved to partner with businesses looking to optimize and manage their payments systems. We’re a bunch of #paymentsgeeks that love what we do.
