It’s a Match: Payments Connection

Smarter Faster Payments Remote Connect Aug. 23-26

Session Information
Thursday, August 26 | 9:40 AM ET

Long before the Bachelor and the Bachelorette introduced the quest for a coveted rose, television provided many other ways to search for your perfect match. But the leader of the genre, the classic "Dating Game," paved the way for the granddaddy of them all – Chuck Woolery’s "Love Connection."

So, will our contestants find love? No, but they may find a Payments Connection!

The Payments Connection will tee up five leading-edge financial service providers who will offer a short look at their featured product. Once their presentation is complete, they will answer questions to clarify how their product is a match for a client. At the conclusion of the presentations, our host will spin our patented “Smarter Faster Payments Matchmakers Wheel” to see which company best matches our panel of prospective clients.

Who will find a match? Let’s find out!


First up, Fiserv. Paul Sullivan, vice president of sales, will share how their Enterprise Payments Platform can provide a resilient foundation for effective digital transformation.

Will that be enough to find their match?


For Finastra, Robert Mancini, head of payments for the Americas, and Mihail Duta, principal global solutions consultant, lets us in on their new open development platform using APIs to help financial instructions.

Will the sneak peek pique a match’s interest?


Taylor Adkins, Q2 vice president, product management, will offer a glimpse at The Integrated Commercial Office of the Future.

But will we be in offices or will the door be closed on a match?

The Clearing House

Stepping up for The Clearing House, Keith Gray, vice president of sales and product development, and Cheryl Gurz, director, RTP® product management, will walk the audience through the RTP network – a  real-time payments platform for federally insured U.S. depository institutions.

Will they tiptoe through tulips and find a match on that walk?


Last but not least, for Volante, Anoop Basavarajiah, director of payments solutions, Americas, presents Payments as a Service, which is an end-to-end solution for the real-time payment processing lifecycle, from initiation through to clearing and settlement connectivity, managed as a service in the cloud.

Will Volante build a life with a match?

Let’s find out!

On Thursday at 9:40 a.m. ET, our host will spin the Smarter Faster Payments Matchmakers Wheel to find out if we can make a Payments Connection.

See you then!
