Learn more about the history of both FinTP Project and Allevo
Allevo started developing a software for financial processing, integration, message transformation and routing in 2001. The first product was qBC, a financial message routing middleware connecting different applications. This was the precursor of qPayIntegrator, started in 2003 and implemented one year later in six major Romanian financial institutions – to connect them to the national electronic payment system (i.e. REGIS, SENT and SaFIR – corresponding to RTGS, ACH and GSRS). Since then, several functionalities were added on top of qPayIntegrator engine, providing support for the most used funds transfer instruments (payment orders, direct debit, debit instruments), including operational features for risk containment (AML filtering, duplicate detection, reconciliation), liquidity reporting, remittances end-to-end management and SEPA and TARGET2 compliance.
In 2011, Allevo initiated the FinTP Project i.e. offering under GLP v3 license its redesigned qPayIntegrator application for financial transactions processing, a practice proven, rich functionalities set, stable and global financial standards compliant solution.
In 2017, Allevo received financial support for a 2-year project for developing an innovative open source solution for corporate treasuries, as part of the Competitiveness Operational Programme 2014-2020. The TOSS – Treasure Open Source Software project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Competitiveness Operational Programme 2014-2020, Priority Axis 2 “Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for a competitive digital economy”.
As part of this project, Allevo built FinTPc for an environment suiting SME and corporate treasuries, posting it to Github, alongside FinTP. New functionalities are posted to Github, along with an automated testing tool and a benchmarking tool. At the same time, the community portal is revamped and redesign to be more collaborative and richer than before.
