Developing a winning game plan for payments

New regulations, low interest rates, steep operational costs, outdated legacy systems, and too many manual processes are just some of the reasons why payment services have become less profitable. To maintain their competitive advantage, improve compliance management, and increase the efficiency of their legacy systems, industry leaders have responded by centralizing and standardizing their payment infrastructures into a payment services hub (PSH).

In Australia and around the world, country payment regulators are also transforming their ACH and low value payment schemes. This revolution in payments is introducing real-time or near real-time payment processing.
