As the end of the year draws near we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our clients, partners and teammates for an extraordinary year, amidst the challenges of the global coronavirus pandemic which has affected families, businesses and communities. Our thoughts go out to anyone who has been impacted by the virus especially those who are sick, we extend our heartfelt wishes for a full recovery.
We have always said “we hold our clients central to our thinking and our actions” and that statement holds true this year more than ever. The success of Lusis Payments is based on the relationships we have built over the years, and we really wouldn’t be where we are without you. Over this past year, as more and more North American financial institutions have called upon Lusis Payments for our technology and services we added our first North American support center in Toronto Canada and have made NA our primary market. Until this year, Lusis had only sales and consulting teams in North America. The addition of this facility and the team assembled will dramatically accelerate new and current project deployments of TANGO.
The need for a cutting-edge, real-time fraud solution has never been so critical as it is now. The world has seen an unprecedented switch from CP (cardholder present), CNP (cardholder not present) to online transactions, which has massively changed the patterns of fraudulent activity for OLTP (online transaction processing). Our clients that process online payments needed the agility to rapidly counteract this industry swing. This year Lusis introduced TANGO AI Fraud (Tango AIF™) to provide a leading-edge solution for fraud monitoring, detection and action — technology that provides the latest methods for processing secure transactions, irrespective of source, nature or market segment. The development has followed years of dedication by our Artificial Intelligence department, created in 2017. As part of our continued dedication to AI, earlier this year Lusis created a research chair in partnership with CentraleSupélec a prestigious French graduate engineering school of Paris-Saclay University. Through this partnership, Lusis and CentraleSupélec are strengthening their collaboration in the field of artificial intelligence applied to the banking sector.
This summer Lusis also announced further expansion as we increased our presence in Mexico and select countries of Latin America. We were excited to introduce Mercedes Fabila as the newest addition to our sales executive team. Fabila joined the company as the Director of Sales, Mexico and Latin America.
Our most exciting news for the year was the new release of TANGO Version 8. TANGO V8 is a major upgrade that provides full microservice integration and complete Cloud capacities. The new features bring expanded capacities and even greater flexibility for delivery. Please contact us directly for a one-on-one presentation of TANGO’s full capabilities and new capacities.
Recently, we were able to interact with several clients, partners and friends during the Virtual NonStop Technical Bootcamp. Through zooms or instant messages, we were happy to answer questions and be able to say hello to colleagues in the industry. Our presentation “Today’s Payments Market: Creating Opportunities from Challenges” is still available for viewing through the Whova app.
As the new year approaches, we know there will be many new challenges ahead. We welcome all that 2021 has in store for us with enthusiasm and anticipation for all the opportunities around the world.
From the whole team at Lusis Payments we wish you all Happy Holidays!
Please sign up ahead of time for our presentation: Today’s Payments Market: Creating Opportunities from Challenges - November 17th at 12:15 PM PST.
Payment processing today is evolving at a rapid rate. It’s not just the technology, allowing more transactions to be generated through new channels. New players are constantly emerging in the marketplace and using new technology to provide exciting new financial services to consumers, who are less loyal to traditional financial institutions and are more demanding than ever. Organizations with legacy solutions face increasing costs to maintain/extend while requiring months/years of hard coding for development of new products for market. To keep pace in a dynamic industry and outperform competitors, you need modern, flexible solutions that help streamline new offerings. This presentation introduces TANGO from Lusis Payments, a state-of-the-art technology with unparalleled configurability provided by its microservices-based architecture. TANGO facilitates the rapid introduction of new business and technical services, enables seamless integration with in-house and third-party applications, and facilitates support for current and future payment components. These features combine not only to address today’s challenges, but also to create a modern payments platform to benefit from further technology and business advancements that will inevitably occur in the future.
TANGO’s architecture deeply integrates with some of the modern and core fundamentals of HPE NonStop such as use of OSS and TMF-protected SQL/MX database, and full exploitation of HPE NonStop “process pair” feature through its hypervisor process. The dispatcher functionality works together with HPE NonStop TS/MP to provide scalability and availability, and supports the active/active configuration. This further establishes HPE NonStop as one of the most ideal platforms to run your TANGO payments solution.

A TRULY INTEGRATED TRANSACTION PROCESSING ENGINE
Lusis payments, the innovative provider of software and services to the payments industry, leads with TANGO, an online transaction processing engine for mission-critical 24x7 solutions including payments, retail, loyalty, finance, utilities, and transport. Payment processors across the globe rely on the total flexibility, high-performance processing, and built-in high availability of TANGO for acquiring, routing, switching, authenticating, and authorizing transactions across multiple channels, in a multi-institution environment across geographies. TANGO offers an open, integrated infrastructure that is highly scalable and efficient due to the genuine approach to SOA, which significantly reduces complexities and improves business responsiveness. With these attributes of TANGO, coupled with the fault-tolerance, near-linear scalability, and unmatched performance of HPE NonStop systems, the combined solution has been the go-to choice for many financial institutions (FIs) and payment processors to satisfy their mission-critical demands of highest efficiency and reliability.
A COMPLETE PAYMENTS SOLUTION BUILT FOR THE FUTURE
While payment processing is constantly evolving, the fundamentals have not changed—perform transactions at high speed with round-the-clock availability and absolute security. Changes come in the form of new financial services—how they are delivered and managed with increasing frequency. To keep pace in a dynamic industry and outperform competitors, you need modern, flexible solutions that help streamline new offerings. TANGO’s state-of-the-art technology and unparalleled configurability due to its microservices-based architecture foster creation of new business services rapidly, enable interoperability with in-house and third-party applications, and facilitate support for current and future payment components. And HPE NonStop is always adapting, such as hardware-independent HPE Virtualized NonStop in a VMware environment as well as support for rich tools for DevOps. Together, Lusis TANGO on HPE NonStop helps keep your payments processing environment at the forefront of financial services and customer experience.
TANGO ARCHITECTURE—FLEXIBLE, OPEN, AND HIGHLY AVAILABLE
A TANGO system is a set of services (SOA) implemented in multi-instance process modules and federated by the dispatcher (load-balancer) with communications facilitated via a universal data bus. The data bus provides a standard data format (Type/Length/Value [TLV]) for all messages exchanged between services. Hence, TANGO Payments Server has no restrictions on transaction types: both standard and nonstandard transactions can be easily defined in the system, as can new transaction types and message flows. This flexibility easily accommodates new requirements and integration of new payment opportunities including external services for fintech APIs.
TANGO’s specialized high-availability components integrated within the platform provide an active/active systems integration without the need for third-party solutions. The active/active support within TANGO allows any given terminal to connect to any of the application servers to provide 24x7 availability to customers.
And to further the advantages, TANGO’s architecture deeply integrates with some of the modern and core fundamentals of HPE NonStop such as use of OSS and TMF-protected SQL/MX database, and full exploitation of HPE NonStop “process pair” feature through its hypervisor process. The dispatcher functionality works together with HPE NonStop TS/MP to provide scalability and availability, and supports the active/active configuration. This further establishes HPE NonStop as one of the most ideal platforms to run your TANGO payments solution.
