Fiserv Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
Fiserv has confronted the changes wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic by expanding far beyond its core focus on financial institutions. A digital-first mindset has become crucial for all businesses to satisfy customer expectations, and Fiserv has delivered for businesses by expanding the capabilities of its Carat omnichannel commerce platform and its Clover® point-of-sale (POS) system. The latter in particular has made Fiserv a key player in the rapidly changing restaurant industry, where owners need tech solutions that integrate all digital processes in one system, and customers expect a seamless digital ordering and payment experience. Nevertheless, Fiserv continued to break new ground in financial services by providing enterprise apps for cryptocurrency transactions and data sharing, payments to digital wallets, and credit card issuance overseas.
One of the stalwarts in the banking sector, Fiserv continues to sell applications such as core back-office systems for banks and credit unions. But in recent years it has been increasingly focusing on selling complete end-to-end integrated solutions for risk management to financial institutions. That covers financial risk management tools for measuring and managing interest rate risk and simulating accruals, cash flows and defaults for all instruments. For treasury management, Fiserv offers straight-through processing solutions for users to manage their treasury, trading and core processing operations with a single system that it remarkets from SunGard.
Fiserv Recent Developments
In August, Fiserv upgraded its omnichannel commerce solution Carat to let businesses make branded digital payouts to PayPal and Venmo accounts, thus aligning with the increased use of digital wallets. In September, Fiserv began a first-of-its-kind collaboration with National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to enable the launch of ‘nFiNi’, a ready stack of services that fintechs and banks can use to issue RuPay credit cards. In November, Fiserv introduced Clover Online Ordering with Delivery. It also launched Enteract, a new cloud-based customer relationship management platform for financial institutions.

Fiserv Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
In December 2020, Fiserv announced that American Family Insurance would start accepting payments through Fiserv’s nationwide network of 30,000 CheckFreePay locations. In April 2021, Fiserv signed a 20-year agreement with Caixa Economia Federal to allow merchants in Brazil to accept payments through Fiserv. In June, Fiserv announced a partnership with Deutsche Bank for several forms of payment acceptance in Germany, including through Clover. In August, Fiserv announced the direct integration of the Clover point-of-sale (POS) system with the Grubhub third-party restaurant delivery app. In October, Fiserv partnered with the Bakkt digital asset platform to facilitate B2B and B2C payouts and other everyday transactions using cryptocurrency.
In April 2020, Deluxe, a Trusted Business Technology company, and Fiserv entered into a new relationship to bring merchant services to Deluxe small business customers. Deluxe customers will have access to the market-leading Clover point-of-sale platform, robust physical and online payment processing capabilities, gift card services and much more. Deluxe Merchant Services, powered by Fiserv, is a natural extension to the existing Deluxe portfolio, which enables customers to make outbound payments. Now with this Fiserv technology, Deluxe can help customers accept payments, offering an end-to-end payables and receivables solution.
Fiserv Risks and Challenges
Fiserv management has been keenly aware of the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Of particular concern are increased chargeback risks as merchants go out of business and fail to fulfill orders, client nonpayment risks, increased risk of cyber payment fraud, supply chain disruptions and shortages, government shutdowns of corporate operations, and health risks to employees. Brexit and tariffs are also areas of concern.
Fiserv's risk management offerings are grouped under its payments segment, representing about 10% of the division's $2.1 billion in 2011 revenues. The Treasury Management product, which is basically a remarketed product from SunGard, is grouped under account processing division of Fiserv, which in itself represents close to 75% of the $2 billion. All told Fiserv's TRM offerings that are consistent with the Apps Run Treasury taxonomy amount to just a sliver of Fiserv's $4 billion in company revenues.
While Fiserv continues to focus on payments technologies primarily Checkfree and account processing functions such as account to account transfer and fraud management, TRM is positioned more like an add-on, rather than its core competency. The 2013 acquisition of Open Solutions, which resulted in Fiserv picking up $960 million in debt after shelling out $55 million for purchase price, underscores Fiserv's desire to place more emphasis on the account processing business, rather than add-on products like TRM, which have yet to generate a significant impact on its top line, or for that matter its vast installed base.
