FIS has opened its fourth payments innovation lab to serve as a hotbed for the continued development of the Company’s disruptive digital and mobile capabilities, as well as shorten time-to-market for new applications.
The latest FIS Digital Innovation Lab opened in San Francisco this week. Other labs are located in New York City, London and Bangkok.
From an immersive, digital display wall that demonstrates the latest FIS innovations to focused work centers for developing apps for watches, wearables, smart TVs, smart cars and more – FIS’ Digital Innovation Lab was designed to foster idea sharing and shorten time-to-market on new applications.
FIS also notes its other recent innovation achievements including Cardless Cash, which Wintrust Bank and BMO Harris Bank recently rolled out in several cities across the United States, and TouchID biometrics – leads the financial industry and continues to exhibit strong growth, with more than 30 million active users.
FIS’ mobile capabilities earned the company Best Mobile Banking Technology at the World Finance Technology Awards and the Paybefore Awards 2015 M-Wallet of the Year.
For its work reinventing the way payment processing is viewed, FIS also recently won the 2015 PYMNTS Innovator Gold Award for “NACHA Best Innovation in ACH” as well as “Best Payments Product” at the Banking Technology Awards 2014.
FIS serves more than 14,000 institutions in over 130 countries.
