Expertus and Ripple are planning to launch a pilot program for financial institutions to test the capabilities of Blockchain and Ripple distributed financial technology.

The  program aims to offer financial institutions an efficient way to test Blockchain technology with minimal business process disruption and integration effort. The solution can be integrated into the bank’s existing payments infrastructure without the need for any changes.

“By providing this pilot program, we intend to help financial institutions move fast in the assessment of this new technology without the operational risk of a large-scale IT overhaul,”says Jacques Leblanc, president of Expertus. ”Several banks have already joined the program and have realized the benefits of blockchain. ”

“Joining forces with partners like Expertus allows us to make it even easier for banks and their customers to realize the benefits of distributed financial technology, says Steve Mollenkamp, Head of Channel Sales at Ripple. “The newly launched pilot program will contribute to the growth of the Ripple network, enabling even more financial institutions to improve their cross-border payments.”

The combination of Expertus Payment Platform with Ripple distributed ledger will help financial institutions to offer their clients real-time payment execution, transparency into fees and lower costs. The solution also enhances liquidity management for banks and their corporate customers and paves the way for global payment netting and settlement.
