Infosys Finacle has partnered with enterprise software firm R3 to enable banks to easily access and deploy Finacle’s blockchain solutions on R3’s Corda platform.

Finacle is a core banking product developed by the Indian corporation Infosys that provides universal digital banking functionality to banks. It is part of EdgeVerve Systems Limited, a wholly owned product subsidiary of Infosys.

The solution is being used by banks to collect bills, issue and verify letters of credit, and open new accounts for trade. It also has a blockchain-based solution – Finacle Payments Connect – that enables real-time payments processing on a permissioned payments network.

Based in New York, R3 is working with a broad ecosystem of more than 200 members and partners across multiple industries from both the private and public sectors to develop on Corda, its open-source blockchain platform, and Corda Enterprise, paid version of the platform has been specifically optimized to meet the demands of modern day businesses. Corda records, manages and executes institutions’ financial agreements in synchrony with their peers, creating a world of frictionless commerce.
