Akcelerant is Now Temenos
New Name. Same People. Same Products. Covering More Ground
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA – February 16, 2016 – Akcelerant, a provider of software and services to the financial industry acquired by Temenos in February 2015, announced today that the company and its product lines have been rebranded and fully integrated into the Temenos product offering. While Temenos has operated as a single brand in the U.S. and globally for some time, this merger will enable the company to continue growing as a financial technology leader with global reach.
“Temenos has been driving financial institutions toward the digital future for over 20 years as the only company specialized in financial software,”
said Jay Mossman, Temenos’ newly named President of North America.
“Throughout this transition, we remain focused on fulfilling our commitments to Akcelerant's customers, and we thank them for their continued support. This exciting merger positions us to continue expanding our delivery of world-class services and solutions, and we look forward to growing with the financial industry as a unified company, now and into the future.”
Through the rebrand, all products and services offered by Akcelerant have been reorganized and fully aligned under newly created Temenos product suites. Each suite has been designed to increase the utility of individual products by pairing them with other solutions and adding value to a customer’s bottom line. Under this new alignment, Akcelerant’s industry-leading Framework platform, used for account origination, loan origination, service, collection and recovery, has been renamed the Temenos Lifecycle Management Suite. This name reinforces the platform’s ability to ensure consistent and positive interactions between consumers and their financial institutions at every phase of the account lifecycle. Akcelerant’s profitability and cost development software, now referenced as Temenos Profitability, has been incorporated into the Lifecycle Management Suite.
Additionally, visitors to the Akcelerant website will be re-directed to the newly-designed www.Temenos.com. Plans are also in place to consolidate Akcelerant’s social media channels with those of Temenos USA.
