Apply Financial is a world-leading provider of validation solutions for global bank payments.

Since 2010, our growing global client base includes banks (ABN AMRO, HSBC, Barclays and FNB), foreign exchange organisations (Currencies Direct, World First, Caxton, Travelex and Kantox), and companies such as Ineos, GL Group, an EasyJet.

By collaborating with technology partners such as BottomLine, Payonomy, and Temenos, Apply Financial ensures that only the correct payment information is entered.

Our Validate solution enables our clients the ability to ensure faster, error-free payments. Savings are enabled in validation time and costs through the solution keeping recipient details clean for transfers, direct debits (DDs), transaction files and mobile payments.

Solving failed bank payments

Apply Financial simplifies the payment validation process by checking details on entry, allowing customers to digitally send global bank funds without any manual intervention.

Straight through processing (STP) means customers no longer have to deal with failed and returned payments, reducing the time and costs, and avoiding the lengthy process of transaction repair.

A bank payment typically fails due to incorrect or outdated banking data used. Payments will be received by the intended party on the desired date through ensuring that details are entered with the correct supporting information such as country-specific transaction purpose codes, there is no clash with national holidays, and any other key points.

The average failed payment costs £50 to rectify, but it can also damage the customer relationship when the intended recipient fails to receive funds on the agreed date.

Global banking payment validation

Apply Financial’s Validate and Validate Data Manager solutions can be consumed as application programming interfaces (APIs) and web-based browsers.

Combining global payment reference data, algorithms and web service functions, our Cloud-based platforms cut the time and cost of processing digital bank payments while enhancing the experience for the customer.

This is achieved by ensuring the customer only enters the correct transaction details, so the bank knows the payment will proceed STP and reach recipient on-time without any intervention. This will save time and money for both the business and payee, as they are given confidence that the payment will not bounce, they will avoid bank charges, and the payment will be received when intended.

Consistent payment regulation compliance

Validate’s global payments reference data is updated on a daily basis.

Our data and rules only come from official sources worldwide, which facilitate daily information gathering, payment rule updates and compliance.
