Partner Spotlight – Flexibility
Mifos Partners are one of the most crucial links in our community – they are the driving force that is promoting and supporting Mifos worldwide. Aside from championing our product and bringing the Mifos technology to new markets, they act as the fundamental bridge feeding in MFI requirements to be developed by the community. Partners don’t stop there as many are also developing and localizing the product to fit their local market. For all these reasons, we focus our full energy on making Partners successful – they are the primary channel to market, the eyes and ears on the ground, and the entrepreneurial force that will help us sustainably scale. We’d love to recognize your partner organization in this monthly spotlight so please reach out if you’d like to be featured.
Flexibility was one of our first Mifos partners in Latin America. They have championed Mifos all throughout South and Central America. They have been an active part of our online and local community, speaking at regional events and participating at our first Latam Partner Summit. We look forward to working with them and their highly professional team as they take on new opportunities throughout the region.
Let’s take some time to learn a bit more about Flexibility directly from their team.
Flexibility was initiated in 2010 and legally founded in 2012. Flexibility is a Argentine-headquartered provider of custom software development and IT consulting services with 4 partners and 15 IT professionals located in Latin América. For over 6 years we’ve been bringing custom and Redhat platform-based solutions to midsized and large companies in Retail, Financial Services, and other industries. The likes of Visa, Santander, BBVA, Diebold Nixdorf rely on our solutions in their daily operations.
With the background rooted in experience, we have built our legacy knowledge and grown it dynamically in the areas of Electronic channels, Settlement, CRM, Data Analysis, and Information Security. As part of this journey, we partnered with Redhat , IBM, Diebold Nixdorf and more tech leaders so that our clients can benefit from these high-level networks too.
Our holistic approach to the organization’s operational excellence, paired with an end-to-end suite of service offerings, is shaped by the desire to drive cost savings and process improvements at every step of the way. We view our relationship with our customers as a true partnership that goes far beyond a vendor engagement, and we support the organization’s individual strategic objectives with services that range from analysis, consulting and installation to monitoring and maintenance.
Contributions Flexibility has Made to Date
Our I+D Team is working today to develop over Mifos over a true set of banking channels to complement the offering for the financial organizations that are thinking that Mifos can be a real world class solution for their communities.
What Motivates Flexibility’s Contributions?
For Retail and Financial owners looking to grow their business, adopting the right solutions from the get-go could have a huge impact on how quickly and efficiently their business can scale. While it is important to select feature-rich and user-friendly solutions that the clients will love, it is also important to adopt solutions that are designed for deployment immediately.
Who are you working with right now?
The world-wide trend towards deregulation, internationalization and conglomeration in financial markets may have substantially increased banking efficiency, but it has also highlighted the need for prudent controls to secure consumer protection and financial stability. We are working with the Central Bank of Argentina to complement with Mifos these expectations.
What is your focus now and heading into 2017?
In our goals for 2017 we have:
- To be nearer to Mifos to deploy the solution around Latin América.
- To be a world class channel provider for Mifos. We believe that our experience in the Financial Market will give to Mifos full solutions complemented with POS Terminals, ATMs, Mobiles, delivering cross channel services.
- Get ready our involvement with Mifos I/O (Apache Fineract Version 2.0), we believe that these products will be a real true standard not only for financial inclusion, but for full digital banking too.
