2021. What an interesting year. With the world turned upside down by a pandemic that seemingly had its sights set on...
All across the world, NonStop users courted by OmniPayments!
The highlight for this past month has been the many Regional User Group (RUG) events OmniPayments has supported and where we fully leveraged the opportunity to provide deeper insights into what our company is doing. Whenever the NonStop community gathers for an event OmniPayments does its very best to support it and in so doing, we have always something new to present or we share an observation that generates interest within the audience and this past month saw no change in that regard.

OmniPayments’ Adriana Malaret and Vaman Palav attended the Atlanta Tandem User Group (ATUG) – a RUG that traces its roots back to the 1980s. “ATUG was a little different this year since it was held at the HPE office in Alpharetta just outside Atlanta,” said Adriana. “We had vendor presentations and got to tour the HPE facility and yes, like many of the other attendees Vaman was particularly excited about the server room!” Although the ration of customers to vendors to HPE was skewed more towards vendors and HPE, simply having access to HPE sales is always an encouraging development. “We managed to get to one of the top HPE sales guys in the region,” admitted Adriana, “and we have kept in touch so that’s good.”

OmniPayments’ Yash together with Richard Buckle and Margo Holen attended DUST. Yash provided the keynote presentations that kicked off the morning and took advantage of his time in front of the DUST community to talk about payments in the modern world. This was reported in the September 13, 2018, post to the NonStop community blog, Real Time View, Summer heat along with summer views …
Yash, OmniPayments CEO, giving an update during DUST on recent customer wins and new feature introductions, reminded me that even in the staid business of payments, change is taking place are a pretty rapid clip compared to the almost glacial like movements by Financial Institutions (FIs) in former times. And yes, IT is complicated even as IT can be confusing for many of us.
What became very clear from Yash’s presentation this week was that mobile devices were drowning out almost every other conversation at FIs as every FI looked to add features to make it even more attractive to do business using just a mobile device. “And we have done all the prereq development to ensure mobile phones are supported today by all users of OmniPayments,” said Yash.
The only other conversations making any noise within FIs, according to Yash, were blockchain and clouds and “that’s where we are now focusing more of our time!” Coming off a successful PoC of OmniPayments own blockchain implementation in support of an FI needing to implement Know Your Customer (KYC), OmniPayments is now confident that it will shortly have its first blockchain customer up and running in a production environment.

OmniPayments’ Paul Chandler was given perhaps the best assignment as he and Vineet Bansal attended OzTUG, visiting both events in Sydney and Melbourne. According to the commentary he provided in the post of September 26, 2018, to the OmniPayments blog, OmniPayments was impressed by OzTUG – Sydney and Melbourne
“‘There were almost seventy attendees in Sydney and around thirty attendees in Melbourne. And there was a goodly number of HPE personnel on hand to see how well the NonStop community remains fully engaged with NonStop systems, middleware and solutions,’ said Chandler. It is a long way to travel and it can be weary but there really isn’t any place on earth quite like Australia.
“Chandler was pleased that from an opportunity point of view, ‘It was clear that HPE NonStop growth down-under is really all about the region. Asia Pacific is absolutely booming with several major new NonStop installations, giving support to OmniPayments plans to direct sales engagement to this region as a number of new banking clients are on board with NonStop.’”
The opportunity to spend time with the NonStop community across the world as was the case this month represents a great opportunity to talk about all that OmniPayments is doing today in the world of payments.
