Temenos has signed an agreement with Tech Mahindra, a global provider of technology consulting and digital solutions, for Tech Mahindra to provide a core banking offering on Temenos SaaS specifically designed for Electronic Money Institutions (EMIs) in the UK and Europe.

By leveraging Temenos composable banking capabilities and Tech Mahindra services, EMIs will benefit from faster time to market, lower operational costs, scalable architecture and access to over 100 curated Temenos Exchange fintech partners, to offer customised and differentiated services to their end customers.

This new offering on Temenos SaaS is designed to offer EMIs a cost-effective, scalable, and secure banking platform, enhancing their ability to launch operations swiftly with a suite of pre-configured, composable banking capabilities that cater specifically to the EMI sector, with features such as multi-currency accounts, virtual and physical cards, client onboarding checks, domestic and international payments orchestration and routing, transactions screening, and regulatory reporting.

The service facilitates dynamic scaling, cost efficiency and sustainability

It also provides the flexibility to incorporate additional banking functionalities as EMIs evolve, supporting their growth and future-proofing their operations.

This SaaS offering is designed to be a springboard for financial innovation, which can also be leveraged by start-up/challenger banks, smaller established banks, and building societies as a cost-effective yet functionally rich and robust foundation to develop and deploy financial products and services rapidly.

Currently being rolled out at an EMI in the UK, this service is set to initially cater to the UK market, home to approximately 250 EMIs, and will subsequently extend its reach across the European Union. In total there are just under 600 EMIs across Europe, holding an estimated €35bn in client funds.
