Payments & Remittances

Deliver innovative payment processing solutions

Key differentiators driving growth

Payments is a very fast moving area of the market. To remain competitive in terms of costs and pricing, Payment Service Providers (PSPs) are having to modernise their operating models. Competing in the area of digital payments, particularly in the context of open banking, is very challenging in terms of technology, regulation and capabilities for handling large volumes. Identifying new revenue streams is therefore key to future-proofing the business’s growth.

Payments are highly regulated and under strict scrutiny. Mitigating risks in processing payments is therefore a critical area where technology can optimise costs and processes. This is especially true in challenging areas, such as cross-border payments, multi-payment integration or B2B payments.

Satisfying an increasing demand for instant digital payments is also pivotal to deliver a creative, user-friendly customer payment experience. To thrive in a fast-moving environment, financial institutions will need to leverage a robust and scalable platform, enabling connectivity and flexibility to offer new products and services within a shorter time to market.

THEY TRUST US

“What we quickly discovered is that the Faster Payments rules are simple, but the process and the technology is not. Every payment system uses a unique type of message. ERI had to make its OLYMPIC Banking System compatible with the Faster Payments standard (ISO20022), which was the first time they had done this. We had exceptional support throughout, to the point where BFC Bank has been complimented as the Faster Payments member with the best uptime performance in the UK. We have not missed a single test, even amid the strain imposed by the current COVID19 crisis. Payment testing can be run remotely or on-site. Additionally, the cost and efficiency offered by ERI is outstanding.”

COO of BFC Bank
