Product Overview

Yet while industry-wide changes related to instant payments, Open Banking, ISO 20022 adoption, and competition from Fintechs are transforming the payments industry, legacy systems can be a challenge and expensive to maintain. Additionally, any improvements are typically costly without much impact on customer satisfaction.
