Product Overview

As the digital world has evolved we have seen the adoption of technologies to improve payments processing, better financial crime compliance checks and improved security, alongside customer experience. Yet while industry-wide changes related to instant payments, Open Banking, ISO 20022 adoption, and competition from Fintech’s are transforming the payments industry, legacy systems can be a challenge and expensive to maintain and improve with high cost of ownership.

Pelican AI’s Digital Payments Hub offers unique opportunities to simplify, improve, and resolve some of these challenges while also leveraging opportunities with a total very low cost of ownership. Our complete payments solution delivers exceptional levels of efficiency, control, and flexibility. Supporting the complete end-to-end payments lifecycle for all payments methods, and all clearing and settlement mechanisms, it’s also fully integrated with our AI-powered Financial Crime Compliance solutions - Sanctions Screening, AML, and Fraud Detection.

Spanning a full end-to-end suite of transformation, payments origination, routing, enrichment, statements processing, and cash reporting services along with exception processing, its modular architecture works with existing and legacy infrastructures to provide innovative, intelligent, and agile services and solutions by leveraging API and AI for today’s digital economy. The solution is available on the cloud as PaaS (Payment as a Service) with the option for low cost of ownership to have it on-premises, or as a hybrid deployment.
