Ecosystems for growth

We strongly believe in the importance of collaboration to achieve growth and the best customer outcomes.

You can see evidence of this in our large ecosystem of partners. We partner with other firms for various reasons, such as to give our clients access to a large pool of system integration resources as well as choice over the technology platforms they run.

In addition, we open up our software to third parties to foster innovation. The Temenos Marketplace is our digital store where clients can browse, discover, download and deploy an ever-growing range of apps. These apps are developed by Marketplace providers using more than 11,000 APIs and business events that we make available to them.

Unrivalled customer success

We make packaged and upgradable software. We commit to spending 20% of our sales annually on R&D. As such, our software gets functionally richer and more technologically advanced with every new release.

Temenos customers significantly outperform their peers. Over the period 2008-2014, Temenos clients enjoyed on average a 31% higher return on assets, a 36% higher return on equity and an 8.6 percentage point lower cost to income than financial institutions running legacy software.

The benefits of using modern software are clear. Temenos customers are more agile, able to offer more personalized products and services, to operate at lower unit costs, to react quicker to market opportunities and to manage risk better.
