Asia Pacific Focus

The project involves a major multi-year implementation at a central bank and is part of a larger, global internationalisation and modernisation process, to build and maintain Real-time Gross Settlement (RTGS) and Scripless Securities Settlement Systems in the Asia-Pacific region.

Volante will assist Finexus in enabling its customers to conduct business with greater agility.

Finexus chose to work with Volante Technologies to provide the critical MT to MX transformations, a key component to any new RTGS infrastructure.

The new system which is currently being implemented has been designed to provide the central bank’s customers with a choice of message formats when accessing settlement services.

Volante will assist Finexus in enabling its customers to conduct business with greater agility without the need for end-users to change their own message standards integration to their internal or source systems.

Allan Spalding, Partners Director, Volante Technologies, commented: “Our expertise lies in easing complex implementation and integration projects. To be chosen by Finexus to provide the critically important MT to MX transformations initially, in such a systemically important project, we believe, is a glowing testament of our capability and reliability. We look forward to working with Joel and the Finexus team on future implementations across the Asia Pacific region.”

Benefits

Using Volante’s core product Volante Designer, Finexus, the central bank and future RTGS customer, will benefit from automatic documentation and access to more than 80 pre-built message maps in compliance with emerging ISO 20022 standards.

Volante Designer will also enable Finexus to maintain their own individual, national standards used as part of the central bank’s settlement service, reducing dependence on third party vendors.

Joel Choo, Executive Vice President, Finexus, added: “The bank with whom we are working, is at the forefront of a global movement in the adoption of message standardisation, and through our partnership with Volante we are able to deliver a modern, sophisticated system that provides customers with more choice, which is increasingly important in this competitive digital age.”

Finance Magnates last reported on Volante Technologies in June after the firm launched a minimal efforts solution for multi-currency settlement in partnership with Ripple.
