Powerful innovations: self-service deployment, unified observability tools, and advanced security features for optimal control.

SEATTLE--()--PortX, the financial infrastructure and integration technology company that delivers open access to data and rapid innovation for financial institutions through its Integration-Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS), announces the release of version 2.0 of its Integration Manager product, a significant update packed with advanced features tailored to streamline your operations and elevate control over your digital core integration.

Combining the power of Integration Manager & Payment Manager for FIs

Integration Manager 2.0 provides FIs with powerful, API-driven process automation that reduces the workload on internal staff and supports a broad range of solutions unavailable from core vendors. This comes on the heels of PortX’s recent release of Payment Manager 1.0 – a tool that allows financial institutions to manage all payment channels on a single screen – which introduced several new features including added support for back-office operations teams to repair returns via Payment Manager’s UI, support for fintech use cases, single sign-on federated with an FI’s identity provider, and quick search functionality for viewing historic wires by IMAD/OMAD.
