Harness the Power of AI in Payment Processing

Make Payment Processing Smarter, Smoother and More Streamlined

AI is unlocking new horizons and driving innovation in the payments industry. Backed by the power of AI, banks and credit unions are taking a giant leap towards greater efficiency, by slashing overhead costs and reducing human error.
Stop waiting on the sidelines while AI revolutionizes the payment ecosystem. Drive growth with AI in the front seat. Smarter operations flow directly to the bottom line of your business. The resultant customer delight and client retention add more punch to the RoI.

Use Case: Intelligent Payment Routing

Maintaining high acceptance rates of your transactions can be challenging in today’s ever-shifting payments landscape. Optimize your payments performance with smart routing to curtail costs and prevent delays in transactions. Power your payment engine and reduce cart abandonments to achieve a high level of customer satisfaction.

Does This Sound Familiar?

Banks and Credit Unions: Mostly use payment engines driven by rule-based logic for determining payment routing. These rules are difficult to maintain and need careful regression testing, which is time consuming. Breaks in existing flows are commonplace, resulting in high overhead costs.

Merchants: Loss of revenue from cart abandonments due to limited payment methods and failed authorizations as well as pressure on margins from higher interchange fees.

AI to the Rescue

Machine learning can replace rule-based configurations to suggest the most efficient payment routing for retail and commercial transactions through various payment methods. This can be applied for account-to-account payments routed through payment methods like RTP, RTGS, ACH, and SWIFT. It can also be applied to different payment processors, acquirers, PSPs, and alternate payment methods.

Business Benefits

  • Simplifies payment routing and lowers errors and false declines
  • Low implementation time and cost after the model is trained
  • Low maintenance time and cost
  • Reduced compensation cost for delayed payments for banks and credit unions
  • Higher conversion rates for merchants

Use Case: Cash Flow Forecasting

Cash flow forecasting is critical for making smart business decisions. Does this justify investing hours in gathering and aggregating transaction data? How do you prevent the process from being riddled with errors? Turbocharge your cash forecasts with machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Does This Sound Familiar?

Liquidity surplus and shortage are both bad news for businesses and financial institutions. One suggests lost opportunities, while the other comes with the elevated cost of securing additional funds. Missed opportunities, delayed payments, regulatory penalties, and severed correspondent banking relations, are on the top of the minds for treasurers.

AI to the Rescue

Deploying ML and AI techniques makes managing liquidity far more efficient. This replaces rule-based or manual processes with powerful adaptive learning in predictive analysis to determine cash flow requirements based on historic cash flow data, cyclical nature, market outlook, organization outlook, etc. It can be applied for managing corporate liquidity, funding for nostro accounts and settlement accounts.

Business Benefits

  • Avoid higher cost of securing last minute funds
  • Invest excess funds for higher returns
  • Less customer dissatisfaction due to delayed payments
  • Avoid regulator penalties
  • Maintain good correspondent banking relations

Use Case: Payment Enrichment with Auto-Repair

STP (straight through processing) means faster processing speeds, lower costs, fewer errors, and improved customer service. Despite these many benefits, six of every seven transactions are completed manually, due to incomplete implementation, low data integrity, non-standard processes, etc. Increase your STP rates with machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Does This Sound Familiar?

While Banks and Credit Unions continuously strive to improve their STP rates, payments consistently fall due to faults in the source of data. This results in either manual repairs, which are riddled with errors, or rule-based repairs, which translates to higher operational overheads. The longer the transaction remains in the repair queue, the greater is the dissatisfaction among customers.

AI to the Rescue

Machine learning techniques can auto-repair payments based on past fixes. This is because most payment faults are due to missing purpose information and insufficient or ill-formatted details of the originator and beneficiary banks.

Business Benefits

  • Faster payments
  • Higher STP rates, resulting in lower costs and fewer errors
  • Lower operational overheads
  • More satisfied customers
  • Higher customer retention
