In the previous videos and blogs in this series we identified key payments processing challenges faced by the international branch networks of banks and how they struggle to address the disparate needs of their multi-jurisdictional markets, be it through a lack of investment or access to appropriate environments and capabilities. This situation leads to many foreign branch entities feeling like they are being treated as second class citizens as they continue to seek to address their business critical challenges in an efficient and timely manner.
We also touched upon the opportunity that the addressing of today’s pressing challenges in payments processing presents to these organizations. The foreign branches have an opportunity to break the mould in how they have traditionally supported their local and international payment flows and thus take a giant leap into the future. Such a leap will be based on addressing their challenges through centralization, standardization, optimization, and SaaSification, i.e. embracing the power and flexibility provided by moving to the cloud with a sustainable, proven partner who can elevate the bank’s payment processing capabilities both now and for the long term.
This final episode in the series highlights why Temenos is ideally placed to be that sustainable, long term partner for regional or global, international entity networks in the ever changing digital payment age.
