PS-ACH - Participant

Automated Clearing House Solution (ACH)

ProgressSoft’s Automated Clearing House participant unit solution operates on a 24/7 basis and connects to central ACH units at the regulatory body for end-to-end clearing payment transactions in a Straight-Through Processing (STP) manner.

The highly scalable solution allows financial institutions to initiate direct debit and direct credit payments as well as standing orders either centrally from their head offices, or from branches through a user-friendly web browser interface.

Open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)

PS-ACH extends open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for financial institutions to submit and receive payment messages as well as replies, cancellations, returns and reversals directly from/to their internal systems. Those APIs utilize ISO20022 and SWIFT MT message formats.
