Advanced Software Design Corporation (ASD), a leader in innovative fraud prevention solutions for banks and credit unions, announced it has agreed to license its interoperability and validation of check security features patents portfolio on a limited basis to PaymentsNation, a premier payments solutions provider. The limited license facilitates PaymentsNation and other fraud solution providers’ participation in multi-vendor interoperability product demonstrations.

Interoperable image survivable check security features are necessary in a Check 21 image-exchange world

"Interoperable image survivable check security features are necessary in a Check 21 image-exchange world," said Calin Sandru, president of ASD. "We are pleased to support PaymentsNation, an organization that has taken a leadership position in the effort to educate the industry about interoperability and implementation of the X9 standard for ICSFs."

Demonstrations of the interoperability of ICSFs are vital for educating the industry and for encouraging the adoption of both ICSFs and the necessary element of interoperability. ASD and PaymentsNation are part of a collaborative effort working together to help banks stop fraud by creating a framework that allows multiple vendors' sophisticated ICSFs to be easily validated from any check image through a common set of messages and using a single process.

"Working with ASD makes it possible for our members and other financial institutions to more easily experience the value that interoperable validation plays in fraud detection for the bank of first deposit," said Karroll Searcy, chief operating officer of PaymentsNation. "Through this arrangement ASD continues to tangibly demonstrate its commitment to the industry with technology, products and knowledge for the detection and prevention of payments fraud."
