As we speed into 2019 while reflecting upon our achievements in 2018, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients, partners and our talented teams across the globe for what has been a very successful year for Volante. We have welcomed several new clients and to highlight just one of our key strategic initiatives, we launched our ‘Payments as a Service’ on the cloud with our first client - you can read more about such initiatives in this newsletter.
Achievements and additions aside, 2018 marked the year in which we further increased our role in helping many financial institutions accelerate their digital transformation in payments processing. We anticipate that 2019 will see yet more banks coming to Volante for support in this area of growth. The Volante ecosystem of business services is proving to be the ideal answer for supporting rapid and transformational payment projects for banks.
Included in this edition is Neil Clarke’s market insight and an article kindly provided by Chris Fritz, Principal Consultant at Ulfberht Advisors discussing the important subject of Client Experience improvement. Other highlights include Fiona Hamilton’s interview with The Sunday Times and Nadish Lad’s interview at SIBOS for Microsoft. You will also see mounting evidence of our focus in helping firms become PSD2 ready as the deadline looms - with QIB (UK) plc and Bank Leumi adopting Volante’s VolPay Open Banking solution to secure quick compliance with the European PSD2 directive.
Before you read on, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers, prospects and partners a successful 2019 and as always, I encourage you to get in touch with one of our team to arrange a time to speak - we welcome any thoughts or questions you may have.
