ISOs Fight for Survival by Seeking Allies in Other Industries

Acquirers and independent sales organizations have long heard a similar refrain: Adjust to the fast pace of technology or perish. It was a blunt way of saying the days of simply pulling point of sale hardware of out a box, plugging it in and moving on to the next customer, are over.

Same Day ACH

Preparing for the launch of Same Day ACH

According to an April press release from NACHA: The nation’s top financial institutions are on target to offer Same Day ACH payments beginning September 23, 2016, according to the results of a new survey conducted by NACHA—The Electronic Payments Association®. Ninety-five percent of respondents indicated they will offer their clients Same Day ACH origination services by year's end. The survey identified the two strongest use cases among those offering Same Day services: payroll and business-to-business (B2B) payments, with 100 percent planning to offer same-day payroll payments and 95 percent planning to offer same-day B2B payments, in addition to services for expedited bill pay and person-to-person (P2P).

We are pleased to report that our Bank Centric Payments platform is also on target for the September 23, 2016 delivery of Same Day ACH.

The Bank Centric Payments platform provides an easily deployed risk-managed environment for the registration, underwriting and delivery of ACH, RDC and credit card payments through one easy to use, cloud based system.
