To support banks, Temenos launched the following AI-driven SaaS technology propositions which are immediately available to help banks with the Covid-19 crisis:
• Enhancing customer digital interactions – With the surge in digital banking volumes Temenos is helping banks meet customers’ needs for intimate digital interactions, particularly those who typically bank in branches. Temenos Infinity Engage gives customers a personal digital communications channel to connect with their trusted advisors within the bank.
• Helping banks give financial relief to SMEs and retail customers with Explainable AI (XAI) – Temenos’ new XAI models delivered as SaaS help banks assist small businesses and retail customers with fast loan approval and viable financial products. These XAI models delivered as SaaS will help banks digitally on-board, conduct eligibility checks, process loan applications and establish the right product pricing. These models include Temenos AI – Urgent Relief Loan, Temenos AI-Personalization and Temenos AI – SME Smart Decisioning.
• US Paycheck Protection Program quick roll out – Temenos is helping US banks and credit unions with Temenos Infinity, the digital omnichannel product, to rapidly process loan applications from small businesses under the US government’s PPP and give them the funding they need. Temenos working together as one team with Atlantic Union Bank helped the bank build a brand new digital loan portal specifically for PPP in less than a week.
• Rapidly adapt AML, KYC and fraud management to new emerging threats – Temenos has partnered with Microsoft to offer fast access to its AI-driven, Temenos Financial Crime Mitigation SaaS solution to help banks combat the rise in cybercrime due to Covid-19. Temenos has proven its ability to support banks of all sizes without disruption, providing comprehensive AML/KYC/fraud management while all bank employees are working remotely.
• Helping banks rapidly launch or adapt products to respond to Covid-19 – Governments and regulators are asking banks to make product changes, such as payments holidays and loan restructurings. Temenos Continuous Deployment delivered as Temenos SaaS supports banks to accelerate changes in test and live environments, providing remote, automated, secure DevOps tools. This means that all necessary product changes can take place in these fast changing, and resource constrained times.
• Providing training opportunities for bank employees – Temenos opened its online learning platform with over 400 courses for all Temenos products and sandboxes for free to allow bank users to experience and test Temenos’ latest technology innovations from their own home.
