PAYMENT Processing OUTSOURCING
Half of our team is currently working on tasks relating to payment transaction outsourcing. This high rate is not uncommon; the outsourcing of the technical and partly procedural processing of payment transactions is currently an important issue for many banks. According to a study by PwC  , more than half of the banks have already (partially) outsourced payment processing and more than a third have concrete plans for payment processing outsourcing.
The reasons for this are mainly:
- the intensity and frequency of (quasi) regulatory requirements,
- the lack of skilled workers and age structure in many payment back-office departments,
- low interest margins,
- the competition in the German banking market,
- increasing requirements in the course of digitisation,
- and the ever faster handling of business processes
and the associated immense expenses at the banks.
Especially in areas with a high degree of standardisation, such as payment transactions, the outsourcing of systems and also of (partial) processes offers numerous opportunities to outsource cost-intensive efforts to professional service providers.
