The combined cloud-based service and access to Finastra’s wider fintech ecosystem means US banks can future-proof their business, increase revenue streams, expand into new markets, and strengthen security.

Officials from Finastra said that trade finance is a complex industry that is still reliant on manual and often fragmented processes. Their combined service with Tesselate delivers the automation and intelligence needed to increase efficiencies and decrease processing times, risk, errors, and total cost of ownership. Importantly, the all-in-one solution promotes interoperability of trade finance processes to reduce friction and complexity, while giving banks the agility to enhance existing or launch new services.

Also commenting on this partnership, Tessellate officials stress the challenges of adopting new technology for banks and highlight their joint solution with Finastra, which offers a secure managed service without requiring significant investments or diverting resources from core activities.
