Use Cases

We can address different Use Cases providing an enhanced digital alternative:

 

Advanced Direct Debit

Full cycle management of direct debit payments

  • All players involved share a contract regulating direct debit conditions: receipts periodicity, fixed or variable amount, order confirmation, etc. The platform manages the execution of payments when the conditions are met; manages conditions modifications, accounts, client management and rejection of receipts.
  • 100% electronic process, from the generation of the direct debit, the communication between players, receipts generation and validation and transfer of funds.
  • Traceability of all operations visible to all those involved in them (users, service companies, financial entities).

 

Conditional payments

Payment subject to a certifier validation

  • The client generates an electronic payment document indicating the amount, the beneficiary and the certifier. If needed, the bank guarantees the funds, blocking them until the operation is completed. The beneficiary, once the terms are confirmed, accepts the payment instrument.
  • When the certifier validates that the conditions have been met, approves the payment and the transfer of funds is made automatically. If, on the contrary, conditions have not been fulfilled, it rejects it and the funds are returned to the client.
  • The entire process is electronic, the full transaction history is traceable, unaltered and transparent to the participants in the operation.

 

Electronic Alternative to Legacy Payments

New 100% electronic payment that can replicates existing payment models or generate new ones.

  • The company (banks client) generates electronic payment documents with expiration date (check, promissory note, etc.). The bank guarantees the authenticity of the documents and its management.
  • Elimination of problems associated with manual processes: errors, losses, duplicates or fraud.
  • The supplier can endorse it or negotiate its discount in an electronic environment.

Electronic Letters of Credit

 

Electronic Letters of Credit management for financial transactions, Sale & Purchase Agreements, International Trade, etc.

  • Letter of Credit processes to regulate standard transactions, incorporating all the players in the platform.
  • Management of compliance of the agreed Terms & Conditions by the certifiers (if required) (can be entities, notaries, Trade departments, or even IoT devices).
  • Automatic management of payments when the conditions are met.
  • All players involved in the Transaction have access to the Platform for management, follow-up and controlling.

Electronic Bank Guarantees

Automated management of the life cycle of Bank guarantees

  • The conditions of the Bank guarantee are regulated in the Platform: amount, duration, guarantor, guaranteed, beneficiary and the certifier that indicates whether it should be executed.
  • The whole process is electronic, from the generation of the guarantee until its completion.
  • Traceability of all operations is visible to all those involved in them.

Immediate International Transfers

 

International multi-currency payments with global liquidity management.

  • The Platform allows to connect all the players that participate in an international transfer.
  • All players work with the same smart contract which guarantees confidence in the operation of the system.
  • Transactions are completed in real time.
  • The liquidity of the system is managed in real time, drastically reducing the need to fund compensation accounts.

Blockchain

Disruptive Technology

Distributed

information is replicated in a network of completely equal nodes.

Safe

There is no repository access key that can be attacked.

Unalterable

  • Transactions are stored in blocks that are sealed with an unalterable code. The blocks are linked (blockchain) which makes any information alteration more difficult.
  • The incorporation of transactions is performed with consensus mechanisms that ensure they are authentic and prevent their manipulation.
  • Stored information cannot be modified or deleted by anyone.

Blockchain Potential (DLT)

Applied to financial processes and services

Operational simplification

DLT reduces / eliminates manual efforts required to perform reconciliation and resolve disputes.

Regulatory efficiency improvement

DLT enables real-time monitoring of financial activity between regulators and regulated entities
