D+H and The Clearing House Partner to Provide Real-Time Payments

17 March 2016

DH Corporation (“D+H”) (TSX: DH), a leading provider of technology solutions to financial institutions globally, today announced that it is partnering with The Clearing House (TCH) to provide real-time payments to U.S. financial institutions. Financial institutions will now be able to use D+H’s payments, core and channel applications to access TCH’s ubiquitous real-time payment system in the United States, making payments seamless, certain, and frictionless.

D+H’s payments technology already supports the processing of millions of faster payment transactions throughout Europe and Asia every day, and will now add capabilities in the United States through TCH’s new U.S. framework. Leveraging its deep, real-time payments processing experience from the U.K., Sweden, and Singapore, D+H will now enable U.S. financial institutions of any size—including the nearly 6,000 U.S. financial institutions currently working with D+H—to connect with TCH for the origination, processing and settlement of real-time payments.

“We are excited to work with D+H, which has extensive experience in connecting its customers with faster payment products," says Steve Ledford, SVP of product and strategy at The Clearing House.  "D+H is a leader in the payments industry with a vast network of financial institution clients, so this partnership is an important milestone as we work toward delivering a ubiquitous real-time payment system.”

“The Clearing House’s real-time payment system is a tremendous innovation, bringing to the U.S. a scheme that enables participants to process payments end-to-end, in real-time,” says Chris Zingo, global head of sales, D+H. “D+H is already a part of the real-time payments transformation in other parts of the world and recognizes real-time payments as an enabler of new modes of commerce with great benefits to the banking industry and society at large. We are excited and committed to bring real-time payments acceptance and accessibility to the United States, as well.”
