Reckon partners with OFX on international payments service

By

Cloud accounting software provider, Reckon, is partnering with Australian-listed global international payments company, OzForex, to allow its customers to make easier international payments.

Under the partnership, Reckon’s Australian customers, who are registered with OFX, will be able to make fast and secure money transfers via the OFX (ASX:OFX) platform.

Reckon customers will have access to better-than-bank rates on 55 currencies, no OFX fees on transfers and round-the-clock access to OFX customer service, and Reckon partner companies will receive access to a range of foreign exchange tools to provide additional value added services to their clients.

Sam Allert, managing director, Australia and New Zealand at Reckon, says the company chose to work with OFX “as they are a market leader in global payments, using trusted payment systems that give businesses access to lower cost international payments".

“Most SME businesses simply don’t realise how much they are paying to transact with customers, suppliers, or employees in other countries. We’re confident that OFX will help Reckon customers become more informed and reduce their costs, without being held up dealing with old-world financial services providers.”

OFX Group chief executive Richard Kimber said the partnership with Reckon is consistent with the company’s Accelerate Strategy, “targeting wholesale opportunities that embed our services in already established ecosystems. We believe this partnership will result in increased brand awareness and lead to further customers for OFX".

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
