Challenger Banks Solution
A SaaS-enabled solution that allows banks to rapidly launch new businesses in new geographies and sectors.
Launch Fast, Launch Efficiently
Challenger banks need to establish an operational capacity quickly and cheaply so that they can start to service new customers as soon as possible. Temenos’ model bank and process-driven implementation approach enable them to do exactly this.
Gain Customers Quickly
New banks do not have any customers. Since all banking revenue comes from counterparties and customers, the ability to both attract and onboard new customers quickly is key to success in this sector. Temenos’ Infinity digital offering offers customer engagement, conversational marketing and unprecedented efficiency in client onboarding and product origination.
Scale Operations to Business Growth
Cloud-native and cloud-agnostic solutions that we provide reduce the fixed costs of operations and allow banks to elastically scale as needed and on-demand.
Ecosystem Driven Offering
A full and competitive solution is more easily assembled when core elements are provided by the challenger bank. Added value items are then sourced from the financial and technology ecosystem. Temenos’ open APIs enable easy integration and innovation, while the Temenos MarketPlace also offers a curated collection of innovative FinTech providers, whose solutions are pre-integrated with our software.

Big Tech firms (like Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple) are eying up the payments space enthusiastically. Anyone who attended Sibos last year would have seen the signs that Big Tech is rapidly moving into the places that E-money Institutions (EMIs) presumed was their fundamental niche. This position will get more competitive! These firms are likely to have a big impact on payments. They have put their brands foremost and are using payments to boost on-platform engagement and commerce, reinforcing their importance in consumers’ lives.
lectronic Money Institutions (EMIs) are a relative newcomer to the financial services landscape – particularly in their visibility to the wider market. They are not banks but they are challenging banks in many ways, including their business model – but how are they driving this change?
Now more than ever, financial organizations are under pressure to adapt and innovate as they face the evolving demands of the modern consumer and increasing disruption from rapidly emerging technologies.
