Bespoke solution design & build

Ongoing management and maintenance 

Unrivalled industry expertise 

First class service and support 

Work with a trusted 3rd party

Corporate banking is complex. Most finance applications don’t talk to banks. The standardisation of financial messages remains in its infancy, and there are endless variances of payment file formats.

All this complexity means that building and maintaining secure connections to banks and payment schemes in-house isn’t easy. Juggling different systems, banking relationships and payment types is hard – especially at scale. AccessPay exists to remove these complexities by providing access to bank connectivity solutions that are secure, reliable and scalable. In other words, we build and maintain corporate bank connections, so you don’t have to.

Minimise project costs 

Building and maintaining bank connectivity in-house is expensive, resource intensive and diverts key internal resources away from focusing on their day job. Unless you have the required budget and resource to employ a bank connectivity team internally, it’s likely that you will incur unnecessary costs that make the project unprofitable – not just to build a solution, but to manage ongoing maintenance.

Utilising third party expertise like AccessPay requires minimal project overhead in comparison to building your connection in-house and guarantees connectivity at a fraction of the cost.

Increase speed-to-value 

It takes time to assemble internal project teams, co-ordinate with the banks and implement all the necessary changes. On average, this takes 18 months when managed in-house.

Using AccessPay, you can get up and running in as little as 12 weeks – thanks to our existing technology, in-house knowledge and banking relationships. 

Leverage existing technology  

Banks have very specific requirements around the method of file transfer, encryption and digital signature. Additionally, each bank will have their own permitted formats and message types.

By leveraging existing FinTech like AccessPay, you can greatly reduce internal technical burden by using existing technology that already meets the security and formatting requirements defined by your banking partners.

Industry knowledge and expertise 

Understanding financial messaging standards, file formatting and the bank’s security requirements is complex. If you do not have the appropriate level of industry knowledge available internally, you risk significant delays and challenges to implementing and managing bank connectivity in-house. 

AccessPay  absorbs these complexities and gives you access to a responsive team of experts who work on projects like yours every day. 

It’s also likely that we’ve worked with your banks many times before – drawing on our existing connections to ensure that your project is implemented within your desired timescales.
