Paydiant Inc., a firm that provides mobile payment services to such clients as Subway restaurants, Harris Teeter supermarkets, and the Capital One credit card company, said Wednesday that it has relocated its offices from Wellesley to Newton as it looks to add to its head count of 75 employees.

Paydiant’s new headquarters office at Riverside Center in Newton occupies 18,000 square feet of space. It previously occupied just under 9,000 square feet of space in Wellesley.

“The centerpiece of the new location is Paydiant’s state-of-the-art consumer experience lab,  which demonstrates an interactive, day-in-the-life digital retail experience for the mobile consumer,” Paydiant’s press release said. “The lab integrates point-of-sale and mobile technology to demonstrate the full gamut of mobile commerce interactions and use cases including Grocery/Pharmacy, Mass Merchant, Restaurant/Bar, QSR, Department Store, Gas Pump/Convenience Store, ATM Cash Access, Mobile Vending, and a consumer’s home.”


The release included a statement from  Kevin Laracey, cofounder and chief executive of Paydiant.

“Our new Riverside Center headquarters provides an exciting and inspiring work environment and enables us to draw talent from downtown Boston all the way out to Route 495 and beyond,” he said. “It is an ideal location for the next stage of our growth.”
