With the release of NYMBUS SmartDigital last week, the core banking innovator has made it that much easier for financial institutions to go digital. “With the addition of SmartDigital,” NYMBUS president David Mitchell said, “financial institutions currently running obsolete technologies now have the ability to add a next-generation digital product suite.”
SmartDigital’s open architecture and flexible APIs enable FIs to readily integrate with third-party applications. With customer expectations increasingly driven by their UX with platforms like Facebook, Google, and Apple, NYMBUS’ digital-first banking solution will help FIs compete with both their rival FIs and fintechs. “The scale of digital disruption is unprecedented and digitalization is no longer an option for the banking industry,” Mitchell said. “It’s inevitable and a matter of survival.”
The launch of SmartDigital could also encourage wider adoption of NYMBUS’ flagship technology, its core banking platform, SmartCore. Transition to SmartCore from SmartDigital is a seamless “turn(ing) on” of the core platform according to Mitchell, who stressed the importance of banks moving away from outdated systems. “We want all financial institutions that have been held hostage on their legacy technology to be able to upgrade and enhance their digital offerings now,” he said. The platform is live with more than 37 FIs around the world with more than 10 million daily end users.
Founded in 2015, NYMBUS demonstrated its core banking platform at FinovateSpring 2016. The Miami Beach, Florida-based company is also a veteran of our developer’s conference, having presented “NYMBUS: The Next Evolution of Core Processing” at FinDEVr New York 2016. NYBMUS has raised $28 million in total funding, including a $16 million venture round in February led by Home Credit Group.
