Today, Ohpen, the digital banking company, announces it has partnered with global technology services firm, Aspire Systems, to allow its clients to benefit from Aspire’s implementation services.
This move gives Ohpen the freedom to innovate with clients, whilst continuing to provide high-quality implementation services. This partnership begins with a focus on the UK market, followed by a gradual global expansion.
The partnership will mean that building societies, credit unions, banks and mortgage lenders can now benefit from the combined innovation and problem-solving expertise, whilst building a future product roadmap for partners and clients. For Ohpen, this means continuing to deliver on its mission of freeing financial institutions from legacy systems and processes. For Aspire, it will help strengthen their key offerings in core banking, savings, investments, loans, and mortgages in the cloud, especially for building societies and credit unions. Aspire Systems’ presence in the UK and European marketplace, coupled with Ohpen’s stronghold in the Dutch region, will enable innovative go-to-market offerings.
Robin Peters, MD of Savings and Investments at Ohpen, explains, “Aspire Systems brings to the table 23 years of experience in the global technology space, and, with over 60 go-lives in the banking domain under their belt, instils the trust and reliability needed to implement projects from commencement to closure. This, coupled with the Aspire team’s deep expertise in software development, makes them the perfect, scalable, implementation partner for our customers. This partnership allows us to focus on what we do best - being a partner for innovation and continued product development for our clients, knowing that the implementation could not be in better hands.”
Prior to this partnership with Ohpen, Aspire and Davinci, which was acquired by Ohpen late last year, shared an eleven-year partnership in the product engineering space. During this partnership, Aspire worked closely with the teams at Davinci to deliver cloud-native lending solutions for banks and credit institutions. These solutions have a state-of-the-art microservices-based architecture and rely on sophisticated test and automation processes to achieve a high product maturity. As a result of this early cooperation, the full product suite benefitted from further standardisation and transformation of interfaces and increased scalability and performance.
Prem Sundaravadanam, Vice President, Europe and LATAM, Aspire Systems comments, “As the financial services market is rapidly moving towards adopting robust, digital, sophisticated and future-ready solutions to service their customers, Ohpen becomes the partner of choice for Aspire as their cloud-native solution helps in solving this exact challenge for banks. We are delighted to onboard this partnership to help banks to accelerate their digital transformation journey along with our entire banking and financial service offerings.”
