Middle East payments are speeding up. As the region continues its path toward instant payments, banks need to develop faster and more sophisticated technology platforms to comply with regulations and meet customer demands. With all the developments taking place, GCC RTGS, BUNA, SWIFT gpi, to name a few, banks in the Middle East have many competing priorities to contend with.
Compliance is just the beginning. Banks in the region will need to go beyond mere compliance, building nimble platforms that are able to process instant payments, cross-border payments, ISO 20022 messages, all while connecting to various APIs in an open banking environment.
The path to modernization lies in the cloud. Early adopters of a "cloud first" strategy will prove to be the winners in an increasing competitive landscape. Volante's cloud-native technology allows banks to build out services and capabilities in stages, at their own pace, giving them room to meet requirement deadlines first, then incrementally add features and capabilities to deliver superior services to their customers for years to come.
"Volante’s focus on real time payments and cloud-native solutions to simplify and automate complex processes in payments and financial messaging was one of the key differentiating factors behind the award win, combined with the firm’s customer-centric approach. Volante processed the first end-to-end instant payment in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, evidencing their track record in innovation in the region."
