Mambu and Volante Technologies Join Forces to Pioneer Cloud-Native Banking and Payments Modernization

Mambu and Volante Technologies | January 24, 2022

Market-leading SaaS banking platform Mambu, and global provider of cloud payments and financial messaging solutions, Volante Technologies, announced a pioneering collaboration to help banks and lenders modernize their banking and payment infrastructures rapidly. The strategic partnership will enable joint customers to speed delivery of innovative payment products and services without needing to rip and replace legacy systems.

Traditional financial institutions struggle with legacy systems that are inflexible, slow and expensive to replace and adapt. Volante and Mambu are partnering to allow financial institutions to modernize their existing payment systems and quickly launch new solutions with different payments capabilities such as wire, ACH, SEPA, real-time and cross border payments. The integration allows customers to implement payment functionalities faster than traditional vendors and provides richer experiences with more flexible payment options for consumers and businesses.

As an API-first platform, Mambu seamlessly integrates with off-the-shelf software solutions, such as Volante, enabling financial institutions of all sizes to offer better, differentiated experiences to their end-customers.

The partnership boosts digital banking and payment functionalities that help orchestrate state-of-the-art solutions across all banking channels. Like Mambu, Volante provides digital technology solutions that equip institutions for future success. Together, we are making available a system that empowers all payment processors seamlessly within Mambu’s Payment Hub. Within a matter of hours, processors can develop and quickly deploy the elements needed to deliver an exceptional 24/7 experience to their customers.”

 Kevin Trilli, Mambu Chief Product Officer

Trilli added, “The platform was possible because of a shared philosophy that a modern low-code cloud architecture allows for scalability, cost-saving and agility. This will drive change and is an important step in making payments processing simpler and more accessible.”

John Farrell, SVP Global Product Management, Volante Technologies commented, “We see this strategic partnership as transformational for the industry. SaaS is a game-changer for core banking. Payments as a Service (PaaS) and low-code technology have proved equally disruptive in payments. By unifying the two, Volante and Mambu are creating a powerful Banking as a Service (BaaS) platform. We believe this synergy, combined with our strong affinity in culture, values and style, will drive tight collaboration and co-innovation for the benefit of our joint customers."

eCloudvalley | September 09, 2022

eCloudvalley Digital Technology (ECV), AWS Premier Tier Services Partner, has assisted more than 450 Hong Kong enterprises in digital transformation since 2016. eCloudvalley participated in the 9th CIO Innovation Forum to share cloud consulting experience in helping customers integrate cloud services seamlessly. This year's CIO Innovation Forum focused on how CIOs integrate internal and external resources to lead digital transformation in the context of information security. Going cloud represents a significant step forward in digital transformation. However, the increasingly complex IT environment burdens the Internal IT team. Many attendees expressed that lacking internal cloud professionals is a big headache. As a result, many enterprises have begun cooperating with the new generation of managed service providers (MSPs). With their expertise in the cloud, MSPs can provide customers with consulting services and a seamless cloud experience. Moreover, MSPs can further offer data analytics services to empower enterprises to unleash the potential of the cloud. "eCloudvalley serves customers from financial insurance, transportation, and communications industries. The cloud environment is complex. To unleash the potential of the cloud, enterprises can rely on MSP for consulting services and advice on information security and cloud optimization. Take eCloudvalley as an example. Based on our abundant experience, we can provide customers with comprehensive cloud services, such as data analysis, information security, and DevOps. In addition, we lighten the IT maintenance burden for our customers, and thus enterprises can concentrate on their own business and create new business models." Joe Kwok, Country Manager, Hong Kong at eCloudvalley Digital Since 2016, eCloudvalley has audited AWS MSP on an annual basis. In April 2022, it was named AWS Services Partner of the Year in Hong Kong. Furthermore, Gartner named eCloudvalley to its 2022 Market Guide for Public Cloud Managed and Professional Services Providers (Asia/Pacific), and ChannelE2E named eCloudvalley to its Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs for 2022, ranking it sixth globally and first in Asia.
