PayLogic and eCurrency partner to deploy a new generation of retail payment solutions globally
DUBLIN, March 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — PayLogic, a premier payment systems technology company, and eCurrency, a leading Digital Fiat Currency (DFC) technology company, announce a partnership to deploy a new generation of National Retail Payment Solutions (NRPS) comprising the Digital Fiat Currency, payment switch and e-money wallets with unsurpassed security, usability, interoperability, and settlement efficiency. The joint solution significantly reduces risks of payment processing and promotes financial inclusion for the businesses and people across the globe.
Rich interconnectivity and instant settlement.
Leveraging the versatility and the reliability of PayWay, the PayLogic technology, and the advanced security, performance, and reliability of eCurrency DFC technology, this partnership enables fast and secure payments between banks, e-money services providers, and merchants. The solution can be connected with banking networks and existing e-money systems. Transactions and settlements between the senders and recipients will be instant and final, executed in DFC issued by the central bank, also known as CBDC (central bank digital currency).
Full interoperability and security.
The solution will significantly enhance the interoperability between e-money and banking services and reduce the risks associated with digital payments. Transaction reconciliation will be streamlined, and consumer funds will have additional protection against fraud and counterfeiting. Service operators will be able to offer richer use cases and enhanced user experience. The joint solution will improve AML and CFT protections and is expected to reduce the use of physical cash, providing convenience and a reduction of the significant costs associated with the handling of physical notes and coins.
“The benefit of our partnership is twofold,” said Mohamed Mekouar, Chairman of PayLogic. “First: synergies of both platforms on how they address the needs of the financial community. Second: Increased global presence of both companies thanks to leveraging on each one’s customers’ portfolio.”
“Our products have long track records of reliable field operations in many countries around the world. They complement one another, and their combination is not merely additive, but rather creates a new class of financial solutions drastically increasing security and efficiency of payments,” added Thomas Kudrycki, CTO of eCurrency.
