Washington, DC, January 18th, 2011– For nearly two decades, Lyons Commercial Data has been a leading provider for U.S. financial institution’s know-your-customer and quality compliance solutions essential to safe, reliable transaction processing. Today, PaymentVision is proud to offer its innovative Lyons Foreign Exchange (FX) services to its community banking clients.

Community banks and credit unions are typically forced to use upstream banks for correspondent services such as FX payment processing, resulting in valid concerns of exposing their client lists to these competing institutions. Through a simplified, easy-to-use web site, Lyons banking clients can now tender speedy, reliable, secure settlement for foreign wires and drafts for their respective customers. Lyons FX is usually more inexpensive than going through correspondents, and in this manner, customer information is never exposed to upstream originating banks or correspondents. Lyons is not a bank; but is instead considered a foreign exchange broker service provider operating through a private exchange network.

“It was an easy choice to partner with PaymentVision as they have one of the most impressive payment transaction capabilities available with over 2000 customers nationwide. We at GPSFX look forward to extending their international product offers.” – David Pierce, Partner

“Our customers have high expectations and we believe that GPSFX with the combined efforts of Lyons gives our clients the most convenient, cost effective and easiest to use international wire and foreign draft capability on in the market today.” – Robert Pollin, CEO

With over 20 years experience in international banking, Lyons seasoned employees are ready to present an end-to-end offering from consulting to FX exposure management and customized FX strategies including consultation and a single point of contact.
