In June, bank Ural FD was the first regional bank to connect to the Faster Payments Service of the Bank of Russia’s payment system (the FPS). The service allows you to make money transfers between clients of different banks by phone number. For Klookva’s clients, the service is already available in the new Internet bank: web versions and mobile applications published in the App Store and Play Market.
When making a transfer via the FPS, the funds arrive to the addressee in another bank instantly! At the same time, the service is available around the clock, including on weekends and holidays. To start using the service, log in to the new Klookva’s Internet bank or go through the simple registration procedure on the Bank’s website.
"For us, this is the most important stage in the modernization of the retail Internet bank — a small technological breakthrough that brings Ural FD closer to first-tier financial companies. Our clients have been waiting for this for a long time, and we are glad that we are ready to provide them with this service. Now, a little more than 60 banks are connected to the service, including VTB, Tinkoff, Alfa-Bank, UBRD. The service becomes available to Sberbank’s clients only after the application is completed. Therefore, if a client of Klookva makes a transfer to a client of Sberbank, the addressee must agree in his Sberbank Online application to accept payments via the FPS. In our bank, the service is available to all clients who have an actual phone number in the database. As part of the development of the service, it is planned to make payments not only between the accounts of individuals, but also to legal entities, government agencies, housing and communal services," Irina Ablekimova, head of the product development department and service channels, bank Ural FD, comments on the event.
Cooperating for over 12 years, BSS and bank Ural FD have jointly implemented the RBS functionality for legal entities and individuals, introduced the Enterprise Clearing Centre (ECC) — a platform for creating modern systems in the field of automation of treasury tasks, information service via various communication channels based on Notification Server and the functionality of interaction with the services of federal authorities based on BSS e-Government Gate. Implementation of the Faster Payments Service (the FPS) is a logical continuation of the bank’s strategy to maintain leadership and improve the quality of services provided. Customer care, the convenience of their work and the availability of services are the priorities.
