Personetics’ AI technologies to play key role in delivering new personalized banking services through a new cloud service for Fujitsu’s Finplex financial services brand
Tokyo/Tel-Aviv, October 24, 2019– Fujitsu Limited, Japan’s leading information and communication technology (ICT) company, and Personetics, the global provider of AI-powered personalization and customer advocacy solutions used by the world’s top banks, today announced a new partnership that leverages Personetics’ cognitive AI recommendation engine for Fujitsu’s new personalized banking cloud service for its Finplex range of SOE solutions. This new offering draws on the technological expertise of both partners to deliver new personalized service experiences for users in the rapidly growing fintech space, with an anticipated launch date for availability in Japan during FY2020.
With the ongoing digital transformation of the financial services industry and increasing diversity throughout society, the need to provide personalized financial advice tailored to users’ individual lifestyles continues to grow. To address this burgeoning demand for customized digital financial service experiences, Fujitsu and Personetics signed a Reseller Agreement that will ultimately result in the delivery of a new financial cloud service for Fujitsu’s Finplex range of SOE solutions. The service will offer personalized banking services ideally suited to the needs of users and businesses in Japan.
Under the partnership agreement, Fujitsu will lead a wide range of tasks including service production, cloud service platform operations and maintenance, while Personetics will provide the self-driving finance platform with an extensive library of financial insights, automated financial programs and a rich customization environment, all based on its cognitive AI engine.
