Phillip Benton, Senior Analyst, Financial Services Technology, Omdia, writes: "Payments is the key to unlocking new value-add services for banks, and they require a payments hub platform that provides interoperability whilst enabling new differentiating services.

Finastra is positioned as a leader because its payment hub incorporates a wide breadth of functionalities that are available off-the-shelf and can be deployed flexibly. Finastra has a large ecosystem of fintech partners through its collaboration platform, which is integrated with the payment hub solution. These attributes contribute to it scoring highly across several categories and the solution has been praised by customers for its excellent customer support and collaborative approach to designing its product roadmap.”
