Challenges Ahead for U.S. Financial Institutions When It Comes to Real-Time Payments

However, financial institutions need to consider not only how to remain competitive today, but also how to stay ahead of future disruptions. They remain challenged in striking the balance between real-time, open banking trends that match customer expectations, with compliance and operational demands.

To spotlight the challenge of real-time payments in the U.S., ACI is hosting a webinar with immediate payments experts from Jack Henry & Associates and The Clearing House. The panel will provide insights into how financial institutions can ready themselves for the coming changes and the increasingly open, digital ecosystem. In addition to addressing the convergence of real-time and digital payments, panelists will also evaluate the role of open APIs, and the new partnership and business models they facilitate.

ACI Worldwide and Finextra will host the live webinar ‘Secure a Winning Position in the New Real-time, Digital Payments World’ on Wednesday, October 11 at 1pm (ET). The webinar will bring together leading experts including;

  • Jennifer Geis, Strategic Initiatives Analyst, Jack Henry & Associates, Inc
  • Tim Mills, Vice President, RTP Business Development, The Clearing House
  • Dean Wallace, Solution Practice Lead, Immediate Payments, ACI Worldwide
  • Thea George, Research Director, Finextra (Moderator)

This webinar will also provide guidance on how to overcome internal obstacles to real-time implementation such as understanding scheme nuances, planning around unknown real-time volumes, and establishing a practical, efficient approach to real-time modernization.
