Wednesday, August 14, 2013 - 16:00 to 17:00

See how Erlang programming language fits into the world of financial solutions. Join our webinar “Erlang in finance - Next generation of automated payment systems”.

Erlang Solutions, and Tutuka invite you to join Rudolph Van Graan (Senior Consultant and Payment System Specialist at Erlang Solutions) & Shaun Hodgkiss (Technical Director at Tutuka) for an insightful discussion on how you can implement a highly scalable payment switch. Erlang Solutions has provided the essential expertise in building hugely scalable payment switches and continues to provide support for these services. Tutuka is a leader in the provision of prepaid cards with experience in building Erlang-powered payment systems.

As transaction volume continues to increase, performance and scalability become critical. Ability to acquire, authenticate and authorize large volumes of financial transactions across multiple channels is a must.

Erlang programming language was designed specifically for writing scalable, fault-tolerant, distributed, non-stop, soft real-time applications. This makes it well suited for building financial switches. With its built-in efficiency, Erlang provides rapid development and low cost implementation.


In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How Erlang helps developing robust, scalable yet flexible payment and transaction systems?
  • How to simplify implementation and deployment of an Erlang transaction system on both low cost and expensive hardware?
  • How ESL helped a specialist payment partner deliver a new generation of payment switch while reducing the overall cost of the solution?
  • Business & technological challenges of ‘Tutuka’ (a software company focused on prepaid technology and the largest and longest running voucher system provider in South Africa) & how Erlang based switch helped in overcoming it.
