Now that 2020 has arrived, the reality of RTP adoption has begun to outpace planning for implementation. The RTP conversation is no longer around should it be implemented, but rather of use cases that have been missed to better serve customers.
Throughout this series we'll provide answers to frequently asked questions surrounding product management for RTP, such as managing the product(s) long term, dealing with cannibalizing current products, and more.
TCH’s RTP adoption is rising. A recent study noted 74 percent of small and large institutions are considering RTP or have begun implementation. Although a large majority are adopting RTP, there are many differences for RTP within small or large FIs.
In 2019, we participated in the RTP Buildathon, sponsored by The Clearing House, Oracle, Yodlee, and The Carolina Fintech Hub. Our task was creating a compelling use case for leveraging the RTP rail and building a working prototype to demo our idea.
