Introducing Symphony Elements
Symphony has always been about open platforms and extensibility. The platform today hosts over 1,300 apps, integrations, and bots built by its partners and customers to automate workflows like incident management, pricing discovery, customer onboarding and knowledge management.
To further support our developer partners, Symphony is introducing a comprehensive set of User Interface extension capabilities and pre-built “Elements” for bots and application integrations. Developers can now use standard off-the-shelf components to automate workflows with consistency and speed.
“With pressure on margins, complex regulatory requirements and tedious manual processes, leading financial firms are automating workflows wherever possible. They want to leave phone calls, email, and faxes behind in favor of more efficient and effective collaborative processes,” adds Gurlé. “We are seeing customers use our platform to re-invent and automate workflows. The introduction of Elements will make this simpler, faster and more efficient.”
Symphony Community Pod
Symphony now offers a streamlined way for financial services institutions to bring their trading partners onto the Symphony platform. The Symphony Community Pod enables secure counterparty collaboration where banks can onboard their customers.
