PCBB Integrates Canadian Check Imaging With Fiserv Clearing Network

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – April, 26, 2022 – PCBB has expanded its relationship with Fiserv to offer Canadian check imaging services through the Fiserv Clearing Network. PCBB already enables end-to-end international wire transfers for financial institutions (FIs) using Payments Exchange: Foreign Exchange from Fiserv. Now, financial institutions that participate in the Fiserv Clearing Network will have access to the advanced payment option of PCBB’s Canadian check imaging solution to streamline check processing, expanding the availability of this service to more community financial institutions.

In 2017, PCBB became the first banker’s bank to provide the Canadian check imaging solution to its customers. Financial institutions could always easily clear foreign checks drawn on foreign banks quickly and cost-effectively using PCBB’s proprietary platform. With the addition of a digital imaging service for Canadian checks, bankers achieved faster operational efficiencies and quicker fraud notification, while opening the door to future enhancements. With PCBB’s recent integration with Fiserv Clearing Network, Fiserv clients now have access to these same benefits, along with the ability to grow their customer base in an increasingly digital world. These institutions can now process Canadian checks and offer provisional credit within 24 hours to their business customers. This, in turn, allows businesses to better manage their cash flow and reduces the time FIs spend on manual paper processing.

“Approximately $2.4 trillion is expected to be spent on digital transformation worldwide by 2024. FIs are striving to keep up on this front too. PCBB has prioritized technological innovations for the last several years, driving advancements, such as Canadian check imaging, to market for the digital transformations of our own customers,” says Allen Sztukowski, Senior Vice President of Operations at PCBB. “Our Canadian check imaging integration with Fiserv allows us to provide digital enhancements to a broader group of FIs for more automated and efficient solutions.”

“Many Fiserv financial institution clients see Canadian check clearing as the last paper hurdle to be overcome in their branches,” said Rodrigo Silva, General Manager of Deposit Solutions at Fiserv. “We are working with PCBB to solve this issue in a way that not only eliminates paper from the Canadian check clearing process, but also makes it very easy for banks and credit unions to participate. Our clients simply need to scan paper checks in their branches, or have their business customers use remote deposit capture in their locations, and Fiserv and PCBB take care of the rest.”

There is no doubt that customers want digital, end-to-end banking services these days. PCBB’s integration with Fiserv provides Canadian check imaging to more FIs, so they can support their customers’ needs for a seamless and enhanced banking experience.
