Zūm Rails and MX strategic partnership enables faster money movement and seamless end-to-end payment solution for fintechs and financial institutions in Canada

LEHI, Utah and TORONTO, Canada — March 07, 2023 – Zūm Rails, an industry leader in data-powered, instant payment solutions, is partnering with MX, an industry leader in Open Finance, to power more seamless payments and money movement for customers of financial institutions and fintechs in Canada. Instant payment solutions from Zūm Rails and MX’s instant account verification (IAV) capabilities will work together to enable instant payments, including electronic funds transfers (EFT).

“The MX and Zūm Rails strategic partnership will enable open banking capabilities before open banking is available in Canada. Now MX clients can benefit from all of MX’s functionality in addition to real-time money movement all in a single workflow, creating the ultimate end-to-end customer experience,” says Miles Schwartz, co-founder of Zūm Rails.

By leveraging MX’s proven Processor Tokens, financial providers can eliminate the need to store sensitive user data and make it easier to access data needed for verifications. With the integration to Zūm Rails, this data can be leveraged in a single step to process a payment through their preferred payment rail, including EFT, Interac, Visa Direct, and Credit Card. 

This open banking approach streamlines the onboarding process and mitigates fraud risk for companies while also improving the money experience for end consumers who want better access to their financial data in a single view and the ability to transfer and use funds quickly.

"Designing for the end-user experience is critical, now more than ever. By partnering with Zūm, we're able to empower banks and credit unions in Canada to deliver a seamless customer experience across every step of their payments journey," said Brett Allred, Chief Commercial Officer, Fintech, at MX.
