NovoPayment Unveils Orchestra, a Next-Gen Middleware Layer to Meet Rising Demand from Financial Institutions

NovoPayment Unveils Orchestra, a Next-Gen Middleware

NovoPayment, a mission-critical financial and payments infrastructure provider, today released Orchestra 2.0, an advanced cloud-based middleware orchestration layer of its industry-leading BaaS platform. Orchestra is designed to help financial institutions quickly modernize their infrastructure in a more secure, scalable, and cost-effective way. The solution enhancements include more capabilities, new API-based use cases to help developers build and deploy new applications, and expedited implementation times.

In a survey of over 200 community bank and credit union leaders conducted by NovoPayment and Forrester, 71% said their customers seek capabilities that can't be built into existing infrastructures. While most financial institutions still rely on legacy systems that pre-date the internet and are expensive to overhaul, smaller institutions are especially price sensitive and lack in-house tech capabilities. To overcome this challenge, more are adopting a middleware approach to modernizing their infrastructure and acquire more digital capabilities to bridge their internal tech gaps.

"Over the past few years, we've seen a rising demand from countless organizations for our middleware orchestration layer and endpoints in digital banking, payment and card solutions as they look to improve margins and reduce costs by leveraging reliable partnerships," said NovoPayment CEO Anabel Perez. "Orchestra serves as a streamlined, convenient way to unify user experiences and fast-track innovation while ensuring compliance."

Orchestra provides the opportunity for financial institutions to benefit from NovoPayment's technological depth and breadth of solutions and further capitalize on localizing experiences – such as remote customer onboarding, instant issuance of deposit accounts & payment credentials, secure remote & contactless commerce, and cash & treasury management, among others.

Orchestra's expansive set of over 60 integrations spans various relevant categories including:
• Customer authentication (AML, KYC & biometrics)
• Core banking systems
• Card payment schemes, ACH and RTP rails
• Payment gateways
• Open banking
• FX services & money transfers
• Wallets & Super Apps
• ERP & CRM systems
• Credit decisioning & scoring
• CBDC • Security & Artificial intelligence
• Top-ups & bill payment providers
• Cash-in / Cash-out networks
• Loyalty and rewards
• Gaming
• Payroll providers
• Card personalization

"Middleware serves as the vital conductor in the symphony of banking-as-a-service, enabling our customers to digitize their operations seamlessly and outperform their competitors," added Rama Ituarte, Chief Technology Officer at NovoPayment. "In an industry where agility, availability and scalability are the keys to success, Orchestra fosters innovation through simplified and automated business processes in agnostic, multi-cloud environments."

Finastra's Filogix unveils automated lender note capabilities, powered by Gen AI

Finastra | February 21, 2024

Finastra's Filogix team has unveiled new generative AI (Gen AI) capabilities in its Expert Pro Canadian Mortgage Point of Sale (POS) solution. The function automates the creation of borrower narratives (notes) that aids in lender underwriting – streamlining processes, saving time and minimizing errors for brokers. With just a single click, users can generate a comprehensive summary of the mortgage deal, covering all the relevant criteria. The content can be reviewed, edited and then sent for underwriting much faster, as compared to the traditional manual process. Content can be auto-composed in English or French, and brokers can choose the format and which elements of the mortgage application to include for a more tailored and personalized experience. Jonathan Wootten, Head of Filogix at Finastra said, "We're very proud of this significant milestone. As a leader in financial technology solutions, we are committed to harnessing the power of Gen AI to enhance our own business processes, as well as to bringing exciting innovations to our customers. In our recent annual survey, 83% of financial services professionals said that their institution is interested in Gen AI. This mirrors the enthusiasm we see in the marketplace for the new functionality in our Expert Pro solution for brokers. We look forward to continuing to bring our customers opportunities to tap into the innovative and transformative technology that is Gen AI." The Auto-Compose functionality has a secure private model at the core, which stands out from other systems built around public models.
