Kalypton recognised by US Federal Reserve as payments leader
In August 2017, the US Federal Reserve Faster Payments Task Force, a broad and inclusive group of stakeholders in the US payments system recognised Kalypton as the leader for realtime payments. View report here.
Kalypton’s crown of top vendor is supported and validated by research that was recently undertaken by American Banker journalist, Kevin Wack. His article, ‘The Fed’s got some big decisions to make on faster payments’ shows a chart, detailing a Faster Payments Scorecard. It clearly shows that Kalypton beat other vendors with its real‐time payments technology, Tereon.
Kalypton is honoured to have participated in the Faster Payments Task Force. Part Two of the Final Report provides insights from 16 submitted solution proposals, reflects on several foundational issues that are important to address, and presents the task force’s goals and recommendations for implementing faster payments in the United States:
