finova announces Hexaware as first independent implementation partner
finova, the UK's largest cloud-based mortgage and savings software provider, has announced a long-term strategic partnership with Hexaware, a global technology and business process services company.
Following a successful three-year collaboration to support the UK mortgage market, the partnership cements Hexaware as an independent implementation partner of finova's loan origination and servicing platforms.
finova and Hexaware will collaborate across a range of solutions and services to bring the best of their technological capabilities to lenders and savings providers, combining finova’s product and industry knowledge with Hexaware’s delivery and systems integration excellence.
The partnership aims to provide clients with a seamless service experience, benefiting from high-quality software delivery with access to an experienced systems integration and testing partner.
The partnership will enhance quality, predictability and accelerate time-to-market for all clients who implement finova's platforms. It will also open up access to a full range of accelerator-led ancillary services, such as user acceptance testing, data migration and integration, to reduce clients' efforts within the software delivery phase and enjoy the most value possible from their investments in the finova platform.
The new partnership follows the recent launch of Optimo, finova's new decisioning engine product, which allows lenders to manage and self-serve product and pricing decisions, and finova Savings, its newest digital-first, end-to-end savings platform. Hexaware will enable finova’s clients to implement its core mortgage origination solutions and new products like Optimo and finova Savings with ease, meaning lenders and savings providers can efficiently implement and enjoy the full benefits of their products at speed.
