Payment industry players: delegate your non-differentiating products to a Core Banking Platform ⚡

In an ever-changing payment market, financial players face increasingly complex challenges. Customers demand a smooth and personalized payment experience, while regulations impose more stringent compliance and security requirements.

In this context, payment players must differentiate by offering innovative products and services. To achieve this, it’s essential to focus on high-value-added activities and to delegate non-differentiating tasks to a Core Banking Platform. Let us explain!

Payment industry players: focus on innovation to stand out 💡

The expectations and requirements of the payment industry customers have changed dramatically in recent years. In particular, the Salesforce white paper on The Future of Financial Services highlights that:

  • Customers increasingly opt for digital solutions for daily transactions, such as transfers and payments.
  • Since the COVID-19 pandemic, over 70% of customers have become more demanding towards financial institutions.
  • Banking, insurance, and wealth management clients are not satisfied with how their financial needs are understood.
  • 3 of the top 5 sources of customer dissatisfaction concern a lack of customer experience personalization.

As a result, payment players must do more to anticipate and meet their customers' needs through personalization. More than fast and smooth payment experiences is required. To meet new customer expectations and demands, offering new and innovative financial experiences becomes crucial. Only in this way will payment players be able to differentiate themselves, win new market share, and build customer loyalty.

Core Banking Platform: what are the benefits for the payment industry? 💳

Payment players are often blocked and limited by their Core Banking System, constraining them in their quest for innovation. Creating and launching new innovative banking products and services with a monolithic Core Banking System takes time and effort.

Core Banking Systems comprise a single technology block that requires the entire technology to be updated for any evolution. Releasing a new payment product or service then takes several years... This leaves payment players needing help to answer new customer expectations and implement innovative ideas before the competition.

To be able to focus on innovation, payment players need to rethink their technology systems and turn to a new generation of core banking, which is itself innovative: core banking platforms.
