Payment Manager


It’s time to

face up to the



Many banks have embedded payments-related functionality

and data in each of their Front Offi ce systems. Changing

and adding new payments-related functionality (like SEPA)

requires that these be adjusted. Since most systems have their

own payment instruction repository, it’s not easy to provide

customers with a true end-to-end visibility of payments that is

consistent across all Front Offi ce systems.

In addition, the interfacing between Front Offi ce systems

and the multiple siloed Back Offi ce systems has resulted in a

complex structure of point-to-point interfaces. This does not

only mean high integration costs and long implementation

timelines, but also causes poor or no feedback to customers

about the results of the payment processing.

If you are looking for a way to meet these challenges,

Tieto Payment Manager is your answer.


Payment Manager is a Middle Offi ce solution that enables easy access to

transactional and reference data from both Back Offi ce and Front Offi ce.

With Payment Manager, payment functionality in the various channels can

be substituted with functionality in one integrated and consistent system,

reducing development and maintenance costs.

Payment Manager works as a bridge between the multiple Front Office and Back Office systems in a bank. It consolidates data and services into one common environment – transferring transactional and reference data from the operations-controlled Back Office to an information hub that is managed and accessed by banks and their corporate customers alike. Payment Manager provides banks with a cost-effective way of delivering new sources of revenue by sidestepping the need for wholesale re-engineering of their Back Office systems. The addition of new, or adjustment of existing function-ality (e.g. validation rule), only needs to be carried out once and not in multiple places (such as Front Office systems). As a result of the consolidation of payment

related data, all payments can be monitored from one single access point (UI). Features like customer billing, business intelligence and management reporting can be handled from one single data source. The result is simplification and more consistent information. The consolidated functionality and data is provided by one single instance of Payment Manager and exposes this as SOA-based interfaces to the bank’s Front Office systems. The Front Office systems take care of cus-tomer interation and request services from Payment Manager to perform payment-related functions (e.g. validation and/or registration of a payment instruction, request data).

An innovative

‘single instance’



In addition to creating a ‘single instance’ environment for customers through multiple channels, Payment Manager provides a new framework for managing the bank’s payment business and delivers capabilities that provide performance data to help product and relationship managers execute their roles. Payment Manager is a powerful and valuable information base where reporting can be provided to both in-house users and customers, transforming payment process-ing from a grey ’must do‘ to a truly valuable tool for everyone involved.

Payment Manager controls payment instructions until execution by the processing payment engine. Thus, the instructions are controlled by the customers until actual execution. Furthermore this will simplify com-plex integration between the different Front and Back Offi ces. Feedback from the Back Offi ce system is used to update the payment status, so it is accessible to each Front Offi ce system. Payment Manager can also generate notifi cations or advices for distribution to the customer via one of the Front Offi ce systems based on a status update.
