Fintech Platform Temenos to Rapidly Expand Digital Payments Portfolio in the Middle East

Leading banking software company Temenos is expanding digital wallets and neo-banking solutions in the Middle East. The banking software company announced a collaboration with the Saudi Arabian digital wallet, STCPay.

STCPay will leverage the fintech software company’s globally-renowned Cloud-native, Cloud-agnostic Temenos Payments, and Temenos Transact solutions. These will run on a private cloud to achieve exponential growth and expand digital payments capabilities in the region. IBM Red Hat is also part of the latest fintech collaboration between STCPay and Temenos.

STCPay is the Middle East’s leading Digital Wallet. It will continue expanding its leadership in innovation in digital payments and grow its customer base to 6 million by 2021.

Currently, the Middle East is a huge draw for global digital wallets and international e-payments companies. The digital wallets, in particular, present an enormous opportunity to local merchants who were severely affected by e-commerce deluge and COVID-19 lockdowns. The Middle East has very strong access to high-speed internet facilities, high-quality smartphones and internet-connected devices, connecting tech-savvy consumers to brands 24/7/365. In fact, compared to its Asian and Western European counterparts, online merchants find using digital wallets more economical and user-friendly — a factor directly influenced by the growing maturity of consumers who prefer to use card payments and internet banking services over POS and cash transactions.

AI and Cloud Computing Provide Ability to Accelerate Digital Payments Trends in EMEA

Jean-Paul Mergeai, Managing Director, Middle-East & Africa Temenos, said: “It is a true privilege to embark on this exciting partnership with STCPay. We are seeing a significant increase in demand for digital payments across the Middle East and Africa region – the COVID-19 pandemic is only accelerating this trend. Our cloud-native, AI-driven software supports the exceptional digital experiences that customers want, but it also provides the business resilience and security that banks need now more than ever. As the only technology provider offering cloud-native banking software in this market, we are excited to deliver Temenos Transact and Temenos Payments and witness another use case for powerful and transformative cloud technology.”

Kelly Switt, Global Director, FSI strategy, Ecosystem and Strategic Partnerships, Red Hat, said: “Red Hat is thrilled to be a part of this collaboration with Temenos and STCPay. We believe that the next evolution of financial services will be based on open source development principles and technologies. We are grateful for the opportunity to enable both Temenos and STCPay on this evolutionary journey and look forward to being an enabler of continuous innovation.”

Retail Transactions to Dip Further

Temenos Payments provides Straight-Through Processing (STP) rates over 99% and will underpin STCPay’s digital customer experiences. Temenos Payments will be integrated with Temenos Transact, the next-generation core banking product, and deployed on private cloud to provide unparalleled resilience and scalability to support skyrocketing volumes of digital payments. This will provide STCPay with timely benefits in light of regional trends towards cashless banking as a result of COVID-19.

According to the recent Economist Intelligence Unit report released by Temenos, 60% of banking executives in MEA think cash will dip below 5% of retail transactions in the next five years.

According to the Temenos Value Benchmark, a strategic, survey-based program providing an in-depth analysis of how software capabilities impact a bank’s profitability, banks with STP rates over 90% can achieve up to 8x higher revenues per customer, compared with banks with lower STP rates.

Temenos Saudi model bank will deliver pre-configured, country-specific capabilities and regulatory compliance to support STCPay to roll out its new platform in the shortest possible timeframe and at minimum cost. With model bank capabilities for more than 150 countries, Temenos’ software will support the seamless onboarding of new geographies across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and scale as STCPay’s business grows.

Temenos is collaborating closely with Red Hat to create a standardized cloud operating model for STCPay based on a collection of enterprise-grade, open-source technologies, including Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Quay, Red Hat AMQ Streams, and Red Hat Storage. The collaboration will provide STCPay with the combined strengths of market-leading cloud-native and open source technologies.
