Clear2Pay's solutions within the Service- Oriented Architecture (SOA) based Open Payment Framework (OPF) offer financial institutions the ability to process payments through a centralised payments engine that utilises a library of re-useable business services across all payment types. The bank can thus combine new services models with existing infrastructures, thereby protecting previous investments whilst gradually moving to a more modern efficient payments environment across the entire value and process chain. The OPF is fully SWIFTReady Payments 2010 accredited.
