Paygov is an effective mechanism for Central Banks to help Government to process outward and inward payments whilst not only increasing the efficiency of making and receiving payments.

Paygov operates as a subledger of the general ledger for the Central Bank’s government accounts. It allows for multicurrency and multi-accounts management whilst maintaining role based authorization within the application.

Paygov provides users with the ability to view their current position in real-time from a payments and account balance point of view.


Payment management workstation/s: Government Treasury or government departments, depending on the implementation model selected, utilizes a payment management workstation to manage their incoming and outgoing payments.
