Who We Are

We strive to be the experts in device connectivity for the banking industry.  We know how much goes into the success of our partners and clients.

Company History

 

Connecting the Past and the Future

As the demand for enhanced features, functions, and security has increased, device manufacturers have implemented these solutions in unique ways.  In order for software platform developers and banks to take advantage of these options, they need to create custom solutions for each unique piece of hardware at each branch.  This is where we can help.  Our Nexus Evolution software provides a set of comprehensive APIs (application programming interfaces), which facilitate fast and easy integration of peripheral devices into any financial application.  This effectively eliminates the time and stress that can come with the acquisition of new devices.

 

Nexus Software LLC is the leader in device support in retail banking teller and platform solutions. Nexus provides software that connects any solution to any device in the retail branch. Founded in 1985, Nexus Software has production installations in more than one hundred countries through our partners and relationships with financial institutions around the world. Our software is currently installed on over 400,000 workstations through more than 1,300 financial institutions around the world.

The Industry

The world of retail banking devices is constantly evolving in both the products and services provided. The ever-evolving changes have often made on the ground delivery of these services a challenge.  In addition, there is frequently a mix of legacy technology and modern devices from region to region, and sometimes even branch to branch.  Passbooks are used over here, while e-receipts are used there, etc.  Finding a way to support this potentially wide variety of devices with a single platform has proven to be a costly, time-consuming challenge for many institutions. 

 

The industry is also commonly faced with changes within the organizations themselves as acquisitions and mergers continually change the landscape of the banking industry.  With this type of organizational change comes the additional challenge of incorporating new devices and services into an already formed platform. 

 

Not only are there changes in both devices and industry landscape, but the technical systems that support these devices are very complex.  The XFS standard that underlies the hardware communications is difficult and costly to develop around. 

 

We know how taxing it can be to keep up with the challenges and changes, which is why we provide a variety of products and services to help our clients to grow, change, and evolve.   We strive to continually give our clients clear cost-savings, a simple process, freedom to choose devices regardless of manufacturer, and risk reduction in development and support.
