Convergent Payments Solutions
You can stay nimble and competitive in the rapidly changing payments landscape with Convergent Payments Optimization from Fiserv, a more efficient approach to multichannel payments management.
Convergent payments processing is the handling of payments of different types, such as checks, ACH and wires, on a single technology platform using a single workflow that conveys the different payment types through the usual processing steps. On a convergent platform, common processing modules and a cross-trained staff support various payment types.
Truly convergent payments processing technology does more than change the routing of a payment or convert a payment from one instrument to another - it handles multiple payment types within a single suite of software that accomplishes the back or middle office functions for all the transactions that flow through it.
Fiserv offers banks a vision of the future that includes streamlined processing for multichannel payments - a single corridor through which all payments pass.
