Icon connects Instant Payment Framework to The Clearing House

20 April 2017  |  3525 views  |  0 Source: Icon Solutions

Icon Solutions, a leading provider of technology solutions and real-time payments consultancy has just announced the enhancement of its Instant Payments Framework (IPF) product to support connectivity to The Clearing House (TCH), accelerating US banks’ access to real-time payments.

US banks will now be able to benefit from Icon’s Instant Payments Framework’s (IPF) templated processing flows, and its pre-configured gateway to access TCH’s real-time payment scheme.

Built on open source technologies, IPF is an agile software product that will expedite US financial institutions’ participation in real-time payments. Leading industry analysts predict that it will provide the lowest TCO option on the market.

IPF also provides the speed of delivery execution US customers demand today to rapidly incorporate with Fintech partners. Through its highly scalable, reusable Open API processing layer that supports digital services, it is designed to futureproof for the demands of tomorrow.

IPF already supports the processing of real-time payments in Europe and was specifically designed to meet the needs of financial institutions who find the cost and complexity of payment hub adoption, or enhancement, excessive to the RTP business case.

Tom Hay, Head of Payments at Icon Solutions said
“We foresee a high demand for IPF in the US. Connectivity with TCH will revolutionize the way that financial institutions think about the value proposition for real-time payments. With IPF, there is no longer a need to build, buy or enhance a core payment hub and engine. In our experience, many institutions get left behind because they cannot justify delivering a fully-fledged Faster Payments solution based on the business case and client's willingness to pay for RTP services.

We built IPF to address the underserved community who need to provide RTP services, justify their business case and ensure low TCO post deployment. We are therefore delighted to support TCH's vision of providing RTP solutions designed to achieve ubiquity.”

Steve Ledford, Senior Vice President, Product and Strategy at The Clearing House said
“We are excited that Icon Solutions is developing a real-time payments solution that will facilitate connectivity to our RTP system. The IPF initiative’s goal is to provide US banks of all sizes with a means to access real-time payments, which will ultimately help us reach our goal of ubiquity.”

Icon Solutions has a track record of providing payment solutions to global financial institutions in the US; this new relationship with TCH cements their commitment to real-time payments. Icon will be demonstrating IPF at NACHA 23-26 April.
