Volante SEPA Instant Payments as a Service


typical cost savings when adopting Volante’s cloud-based payments as a service

Instant payments volumes are rapidly increasing in Europe. European consumers and businesses can now exchange funds immediately, at any time, using one of two pan-European networks, EBA Clearing RT1 and the ECB’s TIPS, whose governing council mandated all T2 participants to be reachable at the end of 2021.

It’s all about connectivity. There are many strong use cases for instant payments that can serve as the basis for monetizing value-added services. But to deliver these services, banks need to easily connect to TIPS and/or RT1, and develop new instant-payment customer experience solutions.

It’s time for instant payments processing as a service in the cloud. In the past, adding a new payment scheme and enabling 24x7x365 real-time operation required high upfront costs and long integration projects. Volante’s service eliminates the drawbacks of legacy approaches, allowing banks to join the instant payment revolution quickly and at low cost.
