Temenos Payments

A universal end-to-end payments solution based on ISO 20022 standards and support for all payment types.

Product Overview

Single Universal Solution

A universal payment solution which can be used to process all payment types in all geographies. Local clearing and other formats can be configured using built-in integration tooling, and the solution supports the entire payment lifecycle from initial order capture to final message processing. This now extends to attested SWIFT Universal Confirmation capability with the solution confirming payments to the SWIFT gpi tracker.

Dedicated Order Management

A dedicated payment order capability enables you to selectively divert payments that are ready for execution directly to Temenos, with other payments being sent to your downstream systems for further processing. This capability improves customer experience and enhances processing efficiency.

Scalable & Cloud-Native

The solution is highly scalable and is built using cloud-native and cloud-agnostic technology. This means that it can elastically scale out and in as required by varying payment processing volumes, whilst allowing for efficient and resilient operation.

Instant Payments

Our standalone Instant Payments modules, support both domestic and SEPA schemes and are fully compatible with any scheme; adapting to changing scheme rules and individual needs.

Payments Repair

The Payments Repair module markedly improves straight-through processing (STP) rates by automatically repairing and enriching messages. This enables payment transactions to be conducted electronically without the need for re-keying or manual interventions.

Liquidity & Risk Management

Temenos Payments includes role-based dashboards, Nostro account views and risk filtering functionality.

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.

Implementation strategies

Temenos - Financial Crime Mitigation

High STP

The solution is designed to operate at extremely high STP rates. This is enabled, in part, by the Payment Repair capability as well as by the configurable exception handling capabilities of the solution. The STP rate can be further improved by the use of elements of the Financial Crime Mitigation solution, in areas such as sanctions screening.

Ease of Maintenance

The highly configurable nature of the solution means that your bank and your partners can easily maintain installation with recourse to software changes. This reduces both the cost and time involved in rolling out changes in response to changing regulations or the evolving competitive landscape.
