The solution supports immediate settlement, deferred settlement, and instant payment types as well as SWIFT and ISO 20022 messaging. Its modular architecture allows financial institutions to build progressively from legacy systems to a fully digital future. The solution is offered by Fiserv as a result of its recent acquisition of Dovetail Group Limited.
