Los Angeles, March 17, 2022 – FinTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global FinTech market, today announced that Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV) a leading global provider of payments and financial services technology solutions, has been named winner of the Best B2B Payments Product in the sixth annual FinTech Breakthrough Awards program. This is the fourth year in a row that Fiserv has had a solution recognized with a Breakthrough Award.

The winning solution, Payments Exchange: RTP® from Fiserv, gives financial institutions the ability to complete end-to-end, real‑time payments 24/7/365 through the RTP® Network from The Clearing House, with minimal financial investment and time commitment. Banks and credit unions can gain market leadership and client loyalty by implementing and offering real-time payments to their business and commercial customers. Millions of payments are clearing through The Clearing House’s RTP® Network every month, with the volume doubling every quarter.

“Financial Institutions face significant challenges in making the transition to real-time payments. While real-time payments are a strategic priority, financial institutions struggle with business and use cases and the cost of making the move,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, FinTech Breakthrough. “Fiserv “breakthrough” Payments Exchange: RTP empowers financial institutions to solve for many of these challenges in a phased approach. Congratulations to Fiserv for being recognized four years in a row.”

“The ability to support instant money movement with real-time payments is strategic to financial institution growth plans. Real-time payment offerings can be a powerful tool to manage cash flows, improve forecasting and reconciliation, and grow market share,” said Dudley White, Head of Financial & Risk Management Solutions, Fiserv. “With Fiserv, financial institutions can deliver innovative real-time payments capabilities faster and more efficiently – for all use cases and all real-time networks.”  

Payments Exchange: RTP leverages existing Payments Exchange integrations and integrates out-of-box with a financial institution’s deposit platforms, digital channels, and fraud systems, reducing the need for development work. Further, implementation by The Clearing House’s RTP financial institution “persona” shortens implementation time and allows financial institutions to incrementally launch RTP capabilities and maintain competitive parity.
