unblu goes live on the Temenos MarketPlace
At its inaugural Meet the MarketPlace event, Temenos (SIX: TEMN) announced the addition of two new providers to its MarketPlace platform, which aims to bring banks and fintech companies.
The two new MarketPlace members are Metaco, which provides a platform for banks and wealth managers to offer custody, payments and tokenization services for digital currencies, and unblu, which provides a customer collaboration suite for making online experiences more personalised, including features such as secure co-browsing to facilitate remote advice and assistance.
The timing of the announcement coincides with the first in a series of Meet the MarketPlace events where, in addition to the latest news and developments about MarketPlace, Temenos customers see demos from some of the most innovative providers on the platform. The event in Singapore, which was attended by representatives from more than 12 Temenos customers, featured presentations from NetGuardians, Inpher, EdgeLab and EZMCom – as well as unblu and Metaco.
Commenting on the news, Ben Robinson, Chief Strategy Officer at Temenos, said: “Unblu and Metaco both provide highly innovative products that bring real business value to Temenos customers. We continue to invest significant efforts into curating the best fintech providers and enhancing the platform so our customers can procure these solutions as quickly and securely as possible. Today’s event is about bringing innovation to our customers and fostering a more engaged community around MarketPlace, which represents an increasingly important part of our sales and go-to-market strategy.”
