Frequently asked questions
Implementing a modern payment system allows banks, financial institutions, and service providers to deliver differentiated offerings to their customers. By employing a modern payment system, service providers can enable innovative payment methods, such as BNPL, cardless payments, click-to-pay and digital wallets.
Traditional payment systems are based on monolithic applications that work on legacy frameworks and large databases. These systems are not configurable or extendible. In contrast, modern payment systems are created keeping in mind the market demand of the digital era. These systems are built using microservices and APIs and are hosted on the cloud for agility and scalability.
For banks and financial service providers, payment modernization is a process to upgrade the payment platform so that it can address changing market demands. The process involves a careful evaluation of the existing system, choosing between a “buy” or “build” strategy for implementing upgrades, moving applications to the cloud, and integrating with third-party APIs to offer value-added services.
