Viveo and Natixis Paiements launch an end-to-end automated management system for payment methods aimed at mid-market European banks.

7 November 2008

Viveo, a renowned publisher in the banking world, and Natixis Paiements, a subsidiary of Natixis specialized in the management of both traditional and electronic payment flow, have joined together to launch a SEPA-compliant straight through processing system for national and European payments.

Industrialisation of back, middle and front office functions contribute to reductions in production and operating costs. The system proposed by Viveo and Natixis Paiements has been designed so that it can easily be integrated into all types of technical environment.

Fully compliant with European regulatory requirements, this jointly developed system uses Natixis Paiements data processing and routing systems, automatically interfaced with the modular V.Bank Payment acquisition solution from the Viveo group.

“The payment management sector is undergoing considerable change with the advent of a unified European system. Our system enables mid-market banks to adapt to a changed market, reduce their costs and develop new, competitive assets”, declared Jean-Marie Vallée, the Director General of Natixis Paiements.

Martin Hubert, the Director General of Viveo, added “This partnership with Natixis Paiements is an example of our strategy to extend our technology and expertise in new European payment methods beyond national borders”.
