CROMWELL, Conn., Aug. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kony, Inc., a leading provider of digital banking solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Payveris LLC, the fastest-growing provider of digital money movement technology to financial institutions. By collaborating with Payveris, Kony DBX will help banks and financial institutions deliver highly-secure digital money movement services, including Person-to-Person (P2P), Account-to-Account (A2A), bill payment, and fraud mitigation.
Payveris, based in Cromwell, CT, offers a scalable, open-API cloud-based money movement platform that enables financial institutions to offer bill payment and presentment, P2P and A2A transfers, and integrated fraud monitoring all from a single platform. The Payveris platform enables banks and credit unions to deploy their money movement services seamlessly across any channel, reduce operating expenses and enhance their customers and member’s digital money movement user experience. While other money movement platforms are rigid and inflexible, this modern API-driven approach lets financial institutions provide true flexibility for modern payment workflows.
“The banking industry is undergoing one of the most disruptive tectonic shifts in modern history. In order to effectively compete in this digital era, banks must evolve to meet the rapidly changing expectations of their customers,” said Jeffery Kendall, senior vice president and general manager, Kony DBX. “A key area where banks can make an immediate impact for their customers is by providing a differentiated money movement experience. For example, creating experiences that incorporate social media or reinforce the bank’s brand and identity. We are excited to collaborate with Payveris to provide new, innovative digital payment solutions to empower banks and credit unions to deliver differentiated experiences that will meet their customers’ needs today and in the future.”
“We are honored Kony chose us to further enhance their leadership position in accelerating innovative technology and digital success in the financial services industry,” said Ron Bergamesca, chief executive officer, Payveris. “Together, we will deliver industry-leading financial money movement technology to help financial institutions realize the benefits of utilizing a modern, cloud-based platform approach to operating digital payment and money movement.”
