Messaging System

A notification platform is deployed in all major Georgian banks enabling the client to send and process numerous notifications with outstanding customization capabilities for the individual clients.

I worked on the project's several business requirements and reengineered it to support the horizontal scaling.

Unified Money Transfer System

UMTS is a money transfer system with integrated platforms, such as Western Union and MoneyGram, developed for financial institutions. The system's primary purpose is to unify all transfer-related operations in a single window.

I was involved in individual API integrations to 16 money transfer systems and core banking system integration for our clients.
