ARP/SMSTM from Fiserv is a hosted, real-time positive pay and reconcilement system that streamlines back office operations, reduces the risk of fraud and enables you to provide broader services and new treasury management offerings.
Financial institutions must keep pace with the products and services their customers demand, while simultaneously reducing costs, improving efficiency and protecting against the ever-present risk of fraud. ARP/SMS (Account Reconciliation Package/Service Management System) helps you meet all of these goals, while also providing an easy, cost-effective way to expand your treasury management offerings for clients.
With ARP/SMS, your staff can perform all maintenance, adjustments, additions, balancing and control requests online and in real time. They can even make corrections and updates to balances immediately. Deposits can be matched for true deposit reconciliation, not just deposit reporting.
