Open Banking is a regulatory initiative that forces UK banks to create open interfaces into previously-locked customer accounts and payment systems. The objective is to simplify how financial information is retrieved, shared and presented. Across multiple banks and bank accounts, consumers and businesses are now able to consolidate, view, and access their banking information, and securely initiate payments from a single interface or authorised Third Party Provider (TPP).
Businesses and banks rely on Bottomline for domestic and international payments, effective cash management tools, automated workflows for payment processing and bill review and state of the art fraud detection, behavioral analytics and regulatory compliance.
While consumer payments are ubiquitous and frictionless, business payments can still be obscure and counter-intuitive. The inherent complexities of larger transaction volumes, proliferated ledgers and regulatory oversight have held back B2B payments. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Bottomline exists to delight our customers, by overcoming friction and making the complex, simple.
