AccessPay and Zanders Host UK Payments Webinar

AccessPay are to host a virtual event titled The Changing UK Payment Landscape: Opportunities and Considerations for Corporates in collaboration with Zanders.

The event, taking place on November 30th at 10am GMT, aims to provide a succinct overview on the current state of UK payments.


What’s the Event About and Who’s It For?

The UK payments landscape is changing.

With modernisation spanning from the connectivity options available to corporates right through to the infrastructure they’re hosted on, it can be hard to keep up. This event is here to help you out, spanning a number of emerging and established topics in the UK payments scene.

Discussion will first centre around Open Banking and the opportunities it holds for corporates – especially in relation to Cash Management services.

Secondly, we’ll consider the Host2Host versus APIs debate, aiming to help you find the right connectivity type for your business and key considerations for adoption.

The Changing UK Payment Landscape will then centre around the all-important financial messaging standard ISO 20022, before wrapping things up with a couple of AccessPay’s key case studies.

If you’re an EU-based Finance or Treasury expert, this event is for you.

The next generation of corporate banking is here – if you need to futureproof your organisation’s ongoing workload and operations, sign up for the event now.
