Expertus, Ripple launch blockchain pilot programme for banks

The partners are promoting the pilot as an opportunity “to test blockchain technology with minimal business process disruption and integration effort.”

Expertus Technologies, the Montreal, Canada-based financial technology (fintech) company is partnering with financial settlement software specialist Ripple in a pilot programme for financial Institutions (FIs) that want to test the capabilities of blockchain and Ripple distributed financial technology.

The pilot, says Expertus “offers FIs a lean way to test blockchain technology with minimal business process disruption and integration effort. The solution can be integrated into the bank’s existing payments infrastructure without the need for any changes.

“The combination of Expertus Payment Platform with Ripple distributed ledger will enable FIs to offer their clients real-time payment execution, complete transparency into fees and lower costs. The solution also enhances liquidity management for banks and their corporate customers and paves the way for global payment netting and settlement.”

“By providing this pilot program, we intend to help FIs move fast in the assessment of this new technology without the operational risk of a large-scale IT overhaul,” said Jacques Leblanc, president of Expertus. ”Several banks have already joined the program and have realized the benefits of blockchain.”

“Joining forces with partners like Expertus allows us to make it even easier for banks and their customers to realise the benefits of distributed financial technology,” added Steve Mollenkamp, head of channel sales at Ripple. “The newly launched pilot programme will contribute to the growth of the Ripple network, enabling even more financial institutions to improve their cross-border payments.”

The Expertus-Ripple enabled solution will be showcased at EBAday forum from June 7-8 in Milan, Italy, and at the Canadian Payments Panorama conference from June 15-17 in Calgary, Alberta.
