Float Management Solutions

Float Management Solutions from Fiserv can help banks model, predict and react optimally to change in float for maximum bank profitability.

As financial institutions increase the volume of electronically cleared checks, they require fewer float staff resources. The movement of paper required analysis of certain transportation and processing steps that have been eliminated in an electronic environment. But as the number and quality of float resources decline, a key question concerns bank profitability: How can a bank continue to optimize what remains a significant cost base?

Learning to model, predict and react optimally to changes in float can ultimately have a significant impact on the bottom line. For many banks, improving float profitability remains a powerful but underutilized tactic for revenue enhancement.
