Instant Payments

Take a look at our combined demo of Temenos Payments, Temenos Financial Crime Mitigation and Temenos XAI, as we show you the power of instant payments.

Enterprise Payments Platform

Temenos Payments Hub (TPH) is an advanced, high performance, universal hub for efficient payment execution and distribution. TPH provides a single highly configurable and extensible platform for multi-jurisdictional, multi-entity, multi-currency, high and low value payment types and payment clearing rails. Available for implementation with any core banking system or processing environment.

The following are some of the important aspects of payments servicing that the platform supports:

Temenos Instant payments

Temenos Instant Payments, powered by TPH, is a full service, flexible, real-time payment solution that supports multiple and varied real-time instant payment schemes including both ISO20022 and non-ISO20022 schemes like SEPA Instant in Europe, UK Faster Payments and FedNow in the USA.

Payment repair

Temenos Payments Repair is a component that can be implemented as a fully integrated part of TPH or as a standalone service within any payments processing environment. It markedly improves straight-through processing (STP) rates by automatically repairing and enriching messages. Utilizing an extensive lexicon of Temenos maintained market data and pre-built industry best practice rules, each bank is enabled to significantly improve the payment service they provide.

Request to pay (R2P)

The Temenos Request To Pay server supports the communication flows between billers and payers, generating payment orders for execution in TPH or any other payment processing system. It can support multiple different R2P schemes within the same instance including the SEPA and UK standards out of the box.

Payment order management

A dedicated payment order capability enables the flexible onboarding and initial preparation of payments for onward routing and execution in TPH or any other payment processing system. This capability improves front end customer experience and enhances end-to-end processing efficiency.

Payment SaaS

Temenos provide a range of flexible deployment options for all payment solution propositions, but of increasing popularity is the consumption of these services through our market leading SaaS. We continue to invest and expand this service, natively supporting a range of public cloud options, reducing time to market and operational running costs for those banks that choose to subscribe and consume this secure and optimized service.

Swift GPI and confirmation

Temenos Payments is SWIFT gpi ready, offering full coverage for gCCT, gCOV and gSRP rulebooks. Temenos Payments is already compliant with Swift Confirmation, thus enabling banks to remain compliant, embrace new payments services as they appear, and provide an engaging customer experience.

Embedded analytics

Embedded analytics provide real-time and contextually relevant help when serving customers and designing new products. They are used to examine previous behavior and to provide predictive insights to guide decision-making, recommendations and design assistance.

We’re modernizing our payments framework, also based on Temenos’ payments engine. Temenos has the right technology, but also the US model bank has the regulatory support for us.
