Instant Global Payments was founded with the single goal of improving the way we make international payments. We aim to help everyone send money overseas easily, with the best exchange rates and all in a fraction of a second.

Henry understands that the old banking methods are no longer valid, and is looking at ways to improve our systems from a business and financial point of view.

It will be a long road to reach our goal. The timeline below shows where we came from, where we plan to go and how we will get there.
We started to grow tired of the current transfer services because they were to slow and offered us poor exchange rates
We knew something had to be done, so we started work on developing a service that made it more affordable and quick to send money overseas
We launched our website and services in a select group of countries
May 2018 (completed April 2018)
Begin rolling out our service to the rest of the world
August 2018 (Completed July 2018)
Connect with domestic payment systems to allow us to receive funds instantly from clients.
Progress: Our customers can fund payments using the NPP (New Payments Platform) which allows us to receive the funds in less than 10 seconds.
December 2018 (Revised and Completed November 2018)
A mobile app will make our service even more accessible and easy to use
Progress: To optimise our service usability on mobile devices we reduced the load time by over 75% and enhanced the design of our website as it scales down to mobile size. We have delayed the release of a mobile app to prioritise features our customers demand more; such as the API and artificial intelligence.
June 2019 (Beta November 2018)
An API will help developers to integrate our service into their own apps and websites
Progress: We did a private beta release of our API seven months early due to high demand; you can get access simply by contacting our support team.
September 2019 (Beta October 2018)
To be completely instant our system must be highly automated, we beleive artificial intelligence is the next generation of automation.
Progress: Our first neural network entered beta testing in early October 2018 (almost a year before scheduled), this program uses machine learning to allow us to reduce the time needed to prepare our accounts payable. The more we use it, the more accurate and reliable it becomes. Currently, in the design stage, is artificial intelligence that will hopefully revolutionise our customer service (hint: just in case you are wondering it's not an AI chatbot) and also make us a world leader in AML/fraud detection.
Inter-ledger functionality will connect our system to non-bank ledgers, which will allow us to facilitate transfers between other asset types.
