Electronic Funds Transfer
ProgressSoft’s Electronic Funds Transfer solution is designed to operate on a 24x7 basis and facilitate same-day electronic funds transfer between banks. It provides bank customers with the means to initiate payment transactions online, with the clearing of those transactions within the same business day.
The solution provides the central bank with the functionality needed to act as a central switching and monitoring authority, as well as a clearing house for the payment transactions.
PS-EFT automatically generates a Net Clearing Position (NCP) report per currency in order to integrate with the central bank’s settlement system and settle transactions at the end of business day.
PS-EFT fund transfers are carried out in real-time on a transaction-by-transaction basis and can be used by both retail and corporate bank customers.
PS-EFT provides banks with the registration facilities needed to enlist their customers in the EFT service. It also provides customers with the means to manage their credentials and access their funds anytime, anywhere.
PS-EFT is fully equipped with comprehensive security measures including Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and One-Time Password (OTP). This guarantees secure customer access to the system.

PS-EFT integrates with any website to provide customers with the ability to conduct e-commerce and online payments.
