Real-time payments (RTP) have had a bit of trouble catching on in the U.S., but they may finally be turning the corner, with The Clearing House’s Real Time Payments Network, as well as the Federal Reserve’s upcoming service, FedNow. Treasury professionals on the whole tend to take their time when it comes to adopting new technology. Nevertheless, the prospect of paying and settling B2B payments in real-time is enticing, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it breaks through in the U.S.

In this episode of AFP Conversations, sponsored by Santander, Larry Mills, Vice President and Assistant Treasurer for Travelers Insurance, and Beatriz Saldivar, Director of Treasury and Payments for Axletree Solutions, discuss how treasury organizations are grappling with transitioning from a batch world to a real-time world.
