Susan Long, Senior Vice President of The Clearing House, responsible for SVPCO-Electronic Clearing Services, said: “The SVPCO Image Payments Network started off 2007 setting new records across the board, both in terms of the total number of images and dollar value. The strong, double-digit increases were the result of accelerating volume from our participating institutions and a 22% jump in volume from the Federal Reserve. We look forward to continuing the dialogue with institutions seeking to develop an image exchange strategy and look forward to seeing colleagues at the BAI TransPay Conference & Expo in Orlando next week.”

SVPCO’s exhibit booth at BAI TransPay is No. 509. SVPCO Vice President Susan Goold, Director of Products and Services, will be speaking at the conference on Monday, Feb. 12 at 10:45 a.m. The session is entitled, “The New Image Exchange Standard: Transitioning to 180.” The Image Payments Network offers financial institutions a variety of connectivity options. The SVPCO Distributed Traffic Agent (DTA), a solution developed by SVPCO with VECTORsgi, enables financial institutions with larger volumes to transmit check images directly to each other. The SVPCO Gateway DTA is a cost-effective solution designed for institutions with smaller volumes or who are interested in gradually ramping up their image processing capabilities. The Image Payments Network can also be accessed through an institution’s correspondent banking relationship or through a third-party processor.

Through December, participating institutions in the Image Payments Network were Bank of America, BB&T, Comerica Bank, Fifth Third Bank, HSBC Bank, Huntington National Bank, JPMorgan Chase Bank, KeyBank, LaSalle Bank, M&T Bank, National City Bank, PNC Bank, Sterling National Bank, Union Bank of California, U.S. Bank, Wachovia Bank, and Wells Fargo Bank. Through its relationship with the Federal Reserve, the Image Payments Network can reach more than 10,000 endpoints and help financial institutions of all sizes take advantage of image exchange.

How the Image Payments Network Works The Image Payments Network is a single, end-to-end system that provides unparalleled control, security and processing efficiency for transmitting check images directly between participants and settling the participants’ net positions. The network enables financial institutions to exchange and settle check images peer-to-peer without a cumbersome central processing system, thus eliminating the expense of transporting physical checks.

All financial institutions that exchange images directly with each other via the Image Payments Network utilize the automated settlement function. Automated settlement provides online net and bilateral settlement position reporting and eliminates the manual intervention required with other settlement arrangements. Financial institutions can see their net debit or credit position online and view their position with all of the financial institutions participating in the Image Payments Network at any time.
