“We started Finxact in the beginning of 2017, and we have focused on building a banking system of record that can effectively replace legacy core systems and also serve as a platform for rapidly evolving digital banking requirements,” said Frank Sanchez, Finxact’s CEO and founder. “We’ve developed a platform that is functionally robust, reliable, scalable and highly efficient.”

Based in Jacksonville, Florida, Finxact first managed to raise $12 million back in May of 2012.

That funding round was led by LiveOak Venture Partners – a venture capital firm based in the great state of Texas.

Not alone

But the Texas-based company wasn’t the only one to inject cash into Finxact.

“We are pleased to invest in and form a strategic alliance with Finxact, enabling us to jointly bring our clients innovation that will help them transform to meet the digital needs of today and tomorrow,” said Brett Goode, a managing director at Accenture and head of the company’s North America Core Banking Practice.
