At the PayForum event, Sopra Banking Software, a global leader in software and services for banks and financial institutions, has won a PayForum Award 2015 for the multi-service HeliPay platform it jointly developed with Axway.
Back in 2014, Sopra Banking Software already won a PayForum Award in the ‘Mobile Payment’ category for its digital wallet management solution, SkyBy. In the 2015 edition, Sopra Banking has again won an award, this time for the multi-service HeliPay, which it developed together with Axway. Both these awards underscore Sopra Banking’s position as an innovator in the payment area.
Because payment instruments are harmonised at a European level since the introduction of SEPA, banks have to offer a broader range of payment services. In this context, HeliPay allows banks to offer innovative services to its customers such as taking care of invoices, signatures for electronic levies, identity verification as well as P2P payment and mobile services. In particular, HeliPay supports French banking offers within the framework of Sepamail.
Bernard Ramé, Manager of the Payments & Cards business line at Sopra Banking: “New players on the market as well as the Second Payment Service Directive requiring obligatory account access, prompt banks to offer new services not just to maintain their revenues, but also and especially to become experts at managing their customer relationships.”
HeliPay was designed as a multi-service and multi-channel solution, deployable across many countries. “The HeliPay platform brings the necessary openness, flexibility and security to respond to the challenges posed by digital transformation,” says Bruno Cambounet, Vice President Finance Services and Insurance Program at Axway.
