This post is part of our live coverage of FinovateAsia 2013.

Coming to the stage for the first of two separate presentations here at FinovateAsia is GMC Software Technology.

"GMC Software Technology is proposing Inspire Research Portal for Investors. Wealth management groups, investment companies and banks have their own team of market researchers who would study the markets and provide their findings to investors on what they could do to secure or enhance their investments. But the current process is too manual and prone to errors. GMC Software Technology has researched and identified that there is a need to streamline this process, as there is no centralized platform or a total solution which could fulfill all these requirements."

Presenting Matthias Kraaz (Technical Director, APAC) and Kelvin Huang (Assistant Manager, Professional Services)

FinovateEurope 2013 Sneak Peek: Part 3

FEU13Logo.jpg
With just a few weeks to go before FinovateEurope, here's the third and final part of our Sneak Peek preview of the companies demoing in London (click here for part 1, here for part 2).

There still time to get your ticket and be a part of the conference in London on February 12 & 13 at Old Billingsgate Market Hall. For more information or to register, visit our FinovateEurope page here.

Each presenting company supplied a few teasers about the innovations they will be showcasing at the event.

___________________________________________________________________________


Thumbnail image for AkamaiLogo.jpg

In a unique demonstration, Akamai will command agents and attack servers across the Internet to launch attacks commonly directed at financial services sites (including SQL injection, slow HTTP post, and DDoS attacks) at a pair of live demonstration banking sites on the public Internet. One site in the clear, and one protected by Kona Site Defender.

The demonstration will show how these attacks can compromise an unprotected site, and how Kona Site Defender is able to detect and mitigate these attacks automatically, live, in real-time. The demonstration will feature innovative adaptive rate control and real-time Web security monitoring security technologies.

Innovation type: Security

BirdbackLoLogo.jpg

Birdback

A lot is happening on the front-end of payments: Mobile POS, mobile wallets, NFC payments ... The back-end of payments, however, remains untouched. A card transaction is nothing more than a money transfer.  Meanwhile, developers dread the prospect of having to develop native applications for each of these new, front-end payment platforms.

So why not an API that sits at the very heart of the transaction network, on top of the most widespread means of payment: the payment card? What if one could link applications to payment cards, essentially turning what's already in consumers' pockets into a loyalty card, a discount voucher or a means of sending them digital receipts?

Innovation type: Rewards, cards, back office

Device Ident

device_ident_logo.jpg
Device Ident will showcase its new solution to prevent online fraud in real time. Our product identifies and evaluates any device interacting with our customers' online services, and analyzes history and behavior of the visiting device to prevent fraud and misuse for all our customers.

It is easily integrated into our customers' online services and it fully complies with European privacy laws.

Innovation type: Security, identity

Five Degrees

five_degrees_logo.jpg
Watch a fully automated model bank with an unparalleled level of self-service giving both customer and bank imminent insight and control in the process.

Through our Web-based, mid-office portal, Five Degrees offers the potential of enormous business benefits in terms of efficiency in adapting new business processes on the go. As today's market demands, our open services hub integrates with external services like KYC checks, Passport Validation, and PFM.

Come and view the fast and instant response for the next banking generation: rapid deployment, rich customer experience, instant and transparent insight for bank and client alike.

Innovation type: Back office, banking, communications, sales

FreeAgent

Thumbnail image for FreeAgent_logo.jpg
FreeAgent is the UK's market leader in SME cloud accounting software. The FreeAgent platform's capabilities extend far beyond traditional accounting software, and are developing toward performance and health measurement tools, providing vital information for both the businesses themselves and current or prospective lenders.

We will demonstrate how cloud accounting and the associated data creation, aggregation and interpretation functions can provide financial institutions with real-time insights into the underlying fundamentals and risk trends existing within a single business or across a base of clients.

Innovation type: Back office, lending, small business

GMC_logo.jpg


GMC Inspire Dynamic Statement is an interactive and engaging way to present your customers' statements, online or offline.

Instead of the standard online statements, GMC Inspire can generate thousands of dynamic statements in minutes, presenting your customers' data through attractive charts and graphs that are fully clickable.

Areas that require attention and action can be highlighted and customers can even drill down to granular level detail, providing a fully intuitive service. GMC Inspire also allows you to track usage of every statement and use this data to populate relevant offers and marketing messages for every customer.

Innovation type: Mobile, PFM

Meniga

Thumbnail image for MenigaLogo.jpg
"To Buy or Not to Buy" is a white-label module for mobile banking applications that uses PFM functionality to empower and influence consumers at the point of sale or when considering buying something.

It allows users to check if they can afford what they are about to purchase or see how much closer to their savings goals they would be if they saved the money and used it to feed their goal instead.

One unique aspect of this innovation is allowing the users to leverage their social networks and direct messages to crowd-source the decision and instantly collect feedback before making the purchase. This fun and simple feature uses gamification to engage users and their network of friends.

Innovation type: Mobile, online, PFM, rewards

PhotoPay_logo.jpg


PhotoPay provides the easiest and fastest way to pay paper and PDF bills using mobile devices.

Paying bills on a mobile phone is often difficult. Manual data entry is cumbersome and frustrating for smartphone users. PhotoPay has developed an advanced technology that significantly improves the mobile bill payment experience for both paper and electronic bills.

Banks and payment providers love PhotoPay because it can dramatically improve user experience and increase bill payments transactions. Our first bank customer has seen a 2,000% increase in mobile bill payments after implementing PhotoPay.

Innovation type: Payments, cards
