Fujitsu participate this event as an exhibitor for the first time, so to let visitors know what we do, we introduce our 3 cutting edge financial solutions for different needs of customer.
Finplex – Regional Currencies (Community-based payment service with the technology of Blockchain)

In such a background, Fujitsu prepare the demonstration of “Regional Currencies”, which shows the way of utilizing the technology of Blockchain and API. There was an active exchange of opinions of how Japanese ICT companies that offers Blockchain technology can change financial industry in the future, and we were able to see that a lot of customers were interested in that topic.
Card less payment
“Card less payment solution” is Fujitsu’s original authentication technology that enables authenticating an ID only placing a hand over a palm vein sensor.
For the many case studies in global market and the unique technologies and devices, many visitors stopped at the booth and inquired about the detail of the technology.
We were able to receive good reviews through the demonstration because palm vein authentication solution uses high level security using information that is inside the body, and it also offers convenience by “placing the hand” which is a non-contact and natural movement of human behavior.
Cloud Lending Solutions
In July, 2016, Fujitsu and Cloud Lending Solutions agreed a strategic partnership to provide banks and other financial services organizations around the world the cloud-based, end-to-end lending and leasing platform - a Fintech solution - developed by Cloud Lending Solutions.
In the booth, we were able to find many customers be interested in what is provided by our collaboration with the company which already has the case studies in the US and in the world.
We found that Money20/20 was a very gorgeous and lively exhibition. Both in and out of the exhibition hall, we were able to see many exhibitors and visitors communicate actively.
Now, in 2016, Fujitsu has just started to challenge for the “co-creation” with financial institution customers by release of Systematize Financial Solutions “Finplex”.
