Payment Clearing and Settlement

Bringing Efficiency and Accuracy in Funds Distribution

The maximum value and safety for faster payment

Faster payments with an increased ROI has become the critical differentiator for staying ahead of the competition. Therefore it has become essential for achieving final settlement as early as possible without delay for credit, liquidity, or operational risk. As part of clearing and settlement, an accurate, real-time, and efficient reconciliation process is a differentiator. Companies that continue to use manual reconciliation processes are overburdened by challenges and at risk in data collection, transaction matching, and post reconciliation adjustments. A configurable, web-based automatic reconciliation system for monitoring and resolving the daily reconciliation process is needed to bring the maximum value for faster payments. Conducting a comprehensive automation review of the end to end clearing and settlement process can optimize operational efficiency for all the players in the payments ecosystem and is a must in today’s disruptive environment.
