Moving Payments Forward

|Lack of Interoperability||Network of CSPs

network enables institutions to move away from bilateral agreements and toward interoperability
Phixius enable CSPs to communicate directly with one another via standardized APIs, frequently conforming to Afinis Interoperability Standards and ISO 20022
|Limited Automation||Streamlined Services
CSPs can leverage Phixius APIs to efficiently
manage the payment information life cycle,
from essential information verification to
customer payment profile management
|Increasing Levels of Fraud||Secure Information Exchange
Information is exchanged securely through
vetted CSPs and supporting APIs; this reduces the fraud that is more common with paper checks, account validations, and other
