Volante Technologies, the world’s top provider of cloud payments and financial messaging solutions, announced today a strategic agreement with HCLTech, a leading global technology firm. Together, the companies will promote payments modernization to assist financial institutions in keeping up with the industry’s fast-paced digital disruption.
HCLTech’s digital and technical services expertise will be combined with Volante’s cloud-native payments solutions and low-code finance platform.

Furthermore, the companies will collaborate to provide their common vision of payments to a broader spectrum of clients and financial services organisations.
The firms will collaborate to establish centres of expertise in India and Romania to assist with the configuration, customisation, integration, and implementation of Volante’s ecosystem of business services for payments modernization. For the following three years, both institutions intend to expand this multi-regional team of professionals.
