Oslo — June 19, 2023 — Tietoevry Banking today announced the launch of a new innovative Payments as a Service Plus (PaaS+), a cloud payments platform, enriched with managed services for payments operations. This enables financial institutions to meet the increasingly demanding needs of customers within the payments business, ensuring compliancy and real-time access to markets.
"We have recognized a crucial requirement for banks to not only adopt a Software as a Service (SaaS) model for the application layer but also strategically outsource specific tasks within their operations. By doing so, they can enhance operational scale, reduce the overall cost of transactions, and strengthen their competitiveness in the payments market," says Jarkko Turunen, Head of Payment Products & Services at Tietoevry Banking.
Tietoevry Banking’s PaaS+ solution is designed to support banks in adapting their business models and capitalizing on new growth opportunities rapidly. By leveraging PaaS+, banks can eliminate the challenges associated with managing their payments systems comprehensively. This includes responsibilities such as on-time upgrades, compliance with regulatory requirements, real-time monitoring, KYC and more. A seamless managed service approach ensures that these tasks are taken care of, freeing banks resources and budget to focus on their business while fostering efficient and hassle-free payment processing.
Key Services Overview
End-to-End Payment Hub: The PaaS+ solution acts as a centralized hub for processing and managing account-to-account payments, consolidating all account payment rails. This allows banks to simplify their payment operations and optimize efficiency.
