Alpha Payments Cloud, a global provider of third party payment, risk and commerce solution access to international banks and merchants, has today announced a partnership with Fiserv, Inc., a global provider of financial services technology solutions.
The partnership will provide Australian banks with a simpler and faster way to process payments in Australia while also generating significantly more value through the addition of overlay services through the AlphaHub Payments as a Service platform.
The AlphaHub introduces Australian banks to an entirely new middleware layer that provides frictionless access to overlay services instantly, significantly speeding up the introduction of new functionalities. Accessing these new functionalities through the AlphaHub’s considerable solution library removes the need for any extra internal development, as all new solution integrations are seamlessly accessible on the platform for immediate use within the transaction orchestration layer.
"Through this partnership between Alpha Payments Cloud and Fiserv, we saw an opportunity to combine a fast, simple and cost-effective solution with a complementary omni-channel platform that introduces the capability to eliminate integrations altogether,” commented Oliver Rajic, CEO for Alpha Payments Cloud. “We believe this solution combination will allow Australian banks to leverage an industry wide initiative and the advancements achieved by it, in order to take an even further leap towards a next-gen solution approach and platform.”
