We're delighted to see the green light on our latest real-time payments collaboration with another Australian success story, Bluestone Home Loans.

Founded in Sydney in 2000, the fast-growing, non-bank lender specialises in residential home loans, and manages more than AU$11 billion in home loans in Australia and New Zealand. In July 2021, Bluestone launched its new digital lending platform featuring a suite of new features and improvements including new loan origination and servicing solutions that utilise Zepto’s real-time payments capabilities.

Our real-time payments technology underpins Bluestone’s new, mobile-first internet banking platform, allowing customers real-time access to their available funds for the first time.

This radically improves borrower experience, and brings Bluestone’s tech in-line with global best practices.

“Projects like this get us really excited,” said Matt Cheers, Zepto Co-Founder and Head of Partnerships.

“Bluestone’s commitment to a best-in-service offering has been impressive, and played a key part in shaping the real-time payments infrastructure solution we developed with them,” added Cheers.

Bluestone worked with global software consultancy, Thoughtworks, in the development of its next-gen lending platform.

Describing the new digital lending platform, James Angus – Bluestone’s Chief Customer Officer – said, “This investment in technology demonstrates our dedication to supporting the broker community and continually enhancing their experience with us. This system upgrade ensures that our brokers can have access to a more streamlined experience that will help them deliver better outcomes to their clients.”

Zepto is an API and automation-centric payments innovator. Our light-touch, single-API integration means our merchant partners integrate with ease, and derive savings and value from simple to complex payment flows in a modern [data-driven], secure [consent-based] and performant [real-time] fashion. 

Our renowned simple connectivity provides seamless bridging from legacy to current—and future—transaction channels.

We couldn’t be happier to have supplied a real-time payments solution that takes Bluestone’s customer experience offering to another level.
