JERSEY CITY, N.J. and PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fundtech, a market leader in global transaction banking solutions, and Zafin Labs, the leading provider of dynamic relationship banking platforms, jointly announced a strategic partnership to integrate their systems. The alliance allows financial institutions to provide a differentiated pricing, billing, profitability simulation and payments experience to customers. The combined system will support integrated transaction processing and relationship banking, including real-time pricing across multiple currencies, based on associated standard or exception price for the customer hierarchy.

Fundtech's Global PAYplus®-Services Platform is a payments services hub supporting management and execution of a wide range of payment types, including: High Value/High Care Payments, Mass Payments, SEPA Payments, Immediate Payments and others, within a common rules-driven infrastructure. Zafin Labs' miRevenue Solution Suite offers financial institutions a multi-currency, multi-geography dynamic relationship pricing engine, profitability simulation, master product catalogue and product lifecycle management, configurable product bundling, revenue capture and management, and, enterprise loyalty capabilities.

By providing a single platform for processing high and low value payments integrated with a dynamic pricing and billing capability, banks and financial institutions are able to automate pricing decisions that reflect the total relationship value and contain revenue leakage. More information on how a seamless pricing proposition for payments competitively differentiates an organization can be found in a co-authored white paper. The integrated Fundtech/Zafin Labs solution has already been deployed in global and regional banks.
