Many banks are looking to transition from the traditional silo systems processing transactions for a single channel to an ‘omni-channel payments hub’. With bank customers choosing the channel for a transaction based on their convenience, it is more imperative to consistently deliver transactions across as many channels as possible. To do that you need the flexibility in the transaction orchestration to recognize uniqueness of individual channels while lower the cost of ownership by sharing as much as possible. Once this is in place there is the option of further improving customer services such as to allow the initiation of a transaction in one channel and completion in another.

Duplication of systems across different payment types and different channels accounts for a large percentage of these costs. Duplication also lengthens the implementation time for new products and services. Streamlining the environment by reducing this duplication frees up investment in new technologies and reduces the time to market of new services. The end goal is a mature omni-channel payment solution that can connect to all internal and external systems, and provides repeatable functions to all payment types from cards and checks to real-time (faster payment) transactions.
