PLANO, TX, July 20, 2023 -- Aptys Solutions, the leading fintech provider of cloud-based, end-to-end, digital payment solutions to over 5,500 financial institutions, including faster and mobile convergence platform, international and domestic wire, ACH, and image cash letter, is thrilled to announce that it has successfully secured partnerships with 45% of the nation’s bankers’ banks and corporate credit unions for participation in the FedNow Service using Aptys’ Instant Pay solution. This significant achievement solidifies Aptys' position as a preferred provider of real-time payment solutions for financial institutions (FIs) throughout the U.S.
Over the past year, Aptys has taken a leading role in collaborating with its customers, who represent over half of the country's financial institutions, as well as with the FRB, to build and refine a solution that can support any financial institution. As a result of these partnerships, Atlantic Community Bankers Bank (ACBB), Catalyst Corporate Credit Union (Catalyst Corporate), Alloya Corporate Federal Credit Union (Alloya), and other participating FIs are now live on the FedNow Service.
