Bottomline Expands Web 2.0 and SOA Capabilities for Cash Management
Bottomline Technologies has expanded support for Web 2.0 and service oriented architecture (SOA) within its WebSeries global cash management platform.
Designed to capitalise on the benefits of SOA and Web 2.0, WebSeries provides banks and financial institutions with the flexibility required to take greater ownership of the end user experience. By leveraging Bottomline’s SOA-enabled building blocks, banks can construct a highly-interactive user experience using state-of-the-art AJAX controls. At the same time, banks with existing front-end user interfaces can significantly enhance the user experience by ‘calling’ Bottomline’s web services to support business rules, transaction processing and information queries. Through either approach, banks can continue to dictate the specific elements of functionality for client-facing solutions.
“When choosing a banking partner, corporations expect cash management solutions to have the same level of usability, sophistication and personalisation found in popular online experiences such as search engines and specialised online communities,” said Eric Campbell, chief technology officer of Bottomline Technologies. “By architecting WebSeries to fully support SOA and Web 2.0 technology, our banking customers are able to create a unique user experience that differentiates their products and services in the marketplace and provides the flexibility to support clients anywhere in the world.”
