Scale operations for business growth

Cloud-native and cloud-agnostic solutions reduce the fixed costs of operations and allow banks to elastically scale as needed and on-demand.

Fast customer acquisition

New banks don’t 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. By providing a great customer experience returning customers spread the word and build brand awareness. To support this, our solution offers customer engagement, conversational marketing and unprecedented efficiency in client onboarding and product origination.

Explainable AI

Bring transparency and explainability of AI automated decision making to your customers with our patented Explainable AI and machine learning capabilities, embedded in the Temenos Platform and available either through an easy-to-use interface or through APIs delivered on-premise, in the cloud or as a SaaS offering.

Modernize payments

Managing international payments is an important part of any bank’s remit. We provide SaaS-first next-generation payments technology for accelerated growth, increased process efficiencies, and enhanced service innovations. We cover the complete payments lifecycle from order intake to clearing and settlement. These components are designed to work successfully both separately or together, providing the flexibility to tailor payment solutions to suit your needs.
