ABK Systeme GmbH

The think tank for innovative software solutions, whether mainframe or smartphone

Powerful and functional software that meets all the relevant requirements of the international payment landscape. More than 30 years ago, ABK developed the first software components with this pioneering idea, which enable banks to implement electronic payment transactions today and in the future. Always in competition with the rapid development of IT and also due to the active participation of market-determining committees and user groups, ABK developed a modular and highly scalable payment transaction platform, which is used today by more than 75 companies and financial institutions, and is thus at the forefront of innovation, especially in Europe.

The future is mobile. ABK anticipated this as a pioneer: Since mobile solutions in payment transactions are an increasingly important competitive factor, ABK has implemented a mobile integration of its service portfolio.

In our own development department in Dreieich near Frankfurt, smart apps for the efficient, location-independent and convenient handling of electronic business processes are always “trimmed“ from the impulses of the market, from existing customers and partners in a regular exchange until they are ready for the market.

The applications are developed on various platforms such as Android, iOS or Windowsphone, either natively or with IBM Mobile First under Linux on the Paymentgroup‘s own IBM z systems.

IBM Mobile First is a development environment that enables a platform-independent, secure, and scalable realization of applications, resorting to existing and reliable resources such as mainframes.

“What we have are good ideas. We realize ideas quickly with the best from IBM and test them for practical suitability by our customers.“
