ISO 20022 represents an evolutionary leap in payments communication. Similar to how streaming video platforms won out over brick-and-mortar video rental stores by offering a better, faster and more accessible user experience, ISO 20022 is the next generation of financial messaging, allowing for the expansion of data elements currently not available through the ISO 8583 payload, opening up opportunities for new use cases. ISO 20022 provides a cleaner, easier-to-use messaging standard that is significantly more versatile and user-friendly than the legacy ISO 8583 standard initially developed in the 1980s.
Our processing partner, Visa DPS, has been designing solutions and building messages in the ISO 20022 standard for more than three years, providing input and feedback to the ISO 20022 working group that has influenced message content and informed the ongoing development of the standard. As a market leader in ISO 20022 integration and development, Visa DPS is working with MAP to help guide credit unions as they start preparing for adoption.
