Libra Internet Bank assessed Allevo’s FinTP-Connect solution, given the requirements of the revised Payment Services Directive – PSD2.
The solution achieves centralized management of requests initiated by financial services providers on behalf of the final customer, for banks (s)he collaborates with. From a functional point of view, FinTP-Connect retrieves these requests, transfers them to the Core Banking system, processes them and returns the legitimately requested responses back to the PISP/AISP (Payment Initiation Service Providers or Account Information Service Providers). Requests can be received as JSON/XML – ISO 20022 and they are sent to the internal systems of the bank in native format.

Once the business requirements and technical details were pinpointed, both the bank’s and our team joined efforts to perfect this solution in a record time, animated by the financial industry’s rapid and broad evolution”, adds Sorina Bera, CEO, Allevo.
