A unique modular end-to-end offering for all your Instant Payments needs

The need for speed is generally increasing, and is impacting customer demands. This also applies to payments. Banks and financial institutions nowadays are expected to offer instant payment capabilities. However, the development of real-time processing technology with 24/7 service availability requires huge investments. How do you make a profitable business case?

As a frontrunner in payments, equensWorldline has been pioneering Instant Payments in the eurozone for the last few years. We have the unique capability to cover the whole value chain for Instant Payments, from payment initiation and channel solutions that directly benefit the end-customer, to back-office processing and clearing & settlement.

Taking Instant Payments beyond the obvious

We believe that Instant Payments will become the new normal, and that Instant Payments are going to revolutionize the way Europeans pay. At first it will start to develop among individuals for person-to-person (P2P) payments. But ultimately, Instant Payments will be introduced in a wide range of use cases.

equensWorldline developed four Instant Payment use cases,  from solutions for consumers (P2P and online) and merchants (point-of-sale), up to solutions for corporates (optimized liquidity and cash management).

In this video Mark Munne, Senior Product Marketing Manager at equensWorldline, explains how equensWorldline is taking Instant Payments beyond the obvious. He briefly explains some possible use cases: from P2P and online, to POS terminal solutions and corporate cash management.

Enabling innovation through payments platform transformation

Global trends, such as changing customer demands, new entrants, innovative technologies, regulatory pressure, higher costs and lower profit margins are driving significant changes to the financial services market.

Expenditures for maintaining and upgrading existing IT infrastructure are limiting the resources banks can devote to innovation and investments in new digital technologies – effectively driving the need for banks to pursue alternative options.

In this whitepaper, we examine how a rapidly changing financial environment is urging banks to rethink their business strategies and back-end operations. We also present a string of key elements and options for banks to consider when driving the necessary change to their payments platforms. Ultimately, making the right choices will help banks to compete in the new, digitized financial era.
