Challenger Banks

Changes in technology enable new banks to set up, and existing banks to open new operations, more quickly to take advantage of fragmenting customer segments and evolving customer needs.

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.

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.
