NACHA | Payments 2017

23 - 26 April

Austin, Texas

VocaLink is delighted to be sponsoring NACHA’s annual event -  Payments 2017 to be held in Austin Texas on the 23 – 26 April.

Jim Mortimer, our Head of International Propositions, will join Barry Kislingbury, Solution Consulting Director, ACI Worldwide to discuss ‘How Request for Payment changes the way we pay’ - The real-time payments revolution brings significant opportunity for merchants and small businesses. Accelerating funds availability and offering customers more payment options are just the beginning of the benefits.

But how will this work? In this session, we’ll examine the Request for Pay functionality of real-time payments and how this changes the way merchants and small businesses can accept payments. We will review the system preparations needed for introducing real-time payments and the changes resulting from this transition from batch to immediate processing.

Jim Wadsworth our Managing Director of Accura – VocaLink’s insights business, has been invited by NACHA to speak on ‘Fighting Payments Fraud with Data Science’ - The financial services industry is increasingly adopting faster payments systems. Unfortunately, fraudsters are also quick to leverage the benefits of faster payments with devastating implications.

Stolen funds are regularly used to support crime; banks or their customers usually have to bear the cost; and the money is rarely recovered. Session attendees receive answers to pertinent questions:

What are the fraud implications for banks and their customers following the implementation of faster payments?

How can an industry-wide approach to data sharing, together with cutting edge data science, help in the fight against fraud?

What can U.S. banks learn from other faster payments anti-fraud initiatives, including a game-changing solution from the UK?
