who we are

We're Vocalink, a Mastercard company. Our technology powers the UK economy.

We design, build and operate industry-leading bank account-based payment systems. Our technology powers the U.K.’s real-time payments, settlement and direct debit systems, as well as networks of over 47,000 ATMs. We process over 90 percent of salaries, more than 70 percent of household bills and almost all state benefits.

In 2017, we became part of the Mastercard family, joining one of the most widely recognised and respected technology companies in the world. Together, we’re making payments safer, simpler and smarter.
