More information on the FIS Red Flag service is available at www.fisonevoice.com/RedFlag, including Web seminars on compliance as it pertains to this new rule. Within just weeks of releasing the FIS Red Flag service, more than 200 clients have implemented this integrated, affordable solution, with most incurring no integration costs as a result of the tight coupling of the service within the existing account-decisioning processes.
