Being paid money is now an almost universal experience. It is why most of us get out of bed in the morning. Banks entrust Voca to deliver billions of these payments electronically. They can depend on Voca's continually improving technologies to deliver the right amounts, at the right times, in ever greater numbers.

Voca is obliged to bring in each new payments technology without missing a beat -or a payment. It is Mission critical with a capital C. The new Voca Payment Platform is extremely fast, capable of processing the equivalent of the entire European daily automated payment volumes in just four hours.

Worldwide, Voca processes payments "end to end" for over 100,000 customers. They include every single FTSE 100 company, the UK Government and the world's top banks. On a peak day the Voca Payment Engine processes 80 million payments, worth £ 45 billion.
