Message Cost Analytics

Understand your messaging costs, identify potential savings and improve operational efficiency. Message Cost Analytics provides a consolidated view of your billed SWIFT messages and the tools to analyse and drill down into the detail of group-wide messaging costs.

Understand your messaging costs

Message Cost Analytics provide the insights you need into your group-wide messaging costs over FIN, InterAct and FileAct, including average message price, fixed charges, number of chargeable units and other measures, by message type, BIC, counterparty and geography, and over time.

You can also view your data against aggregated SWIFT totals, allowing you to benchmark your performance against the industry.

Analyse and drill down into the detail to identify, for example, cost breakdowns by branch, how message costs are evolving in key business areas or where operational efficiency improvements can be made. Gain a clear focus on costs including: 

  • What is the total cost of NACKed messages?
  • Are we incurring costs for free format messages?
  • Could savings be made on delivery notifications?

Data is available for the previous two years, plus year to date, and is updated monthly.

Powerful analysis and reporting

With Message Cost Analytics you benefit from the powerful Watch Analytics online analysis and reporting tool. Use the Watch wizard drag and drop interface to query the data through multiple dimensions, select and organise the results and produce highly tailored reports.  

There’s also a library of graphical views, including graphs, charts and a world-wide footprint of geographical distribution, which can be tailored by filtering your data.

Update and share your results

Once you have the results you need, you can export them to Excel or other applications for further processing or integration into your existing analysis environment. It’s easy to update and share reports, templates and graphical views ready for presentations and management reporting.

Secure, reliable, neutral data

The Watch platform provides secure, online access to unique, factual and neutral data and powerful analysis. There is no software to install on your systems, making it quick and easy to get up and running.

Your unique SWIFT message cost data is held securely on our servers and only available to you via secure access. SWIFT total volumes are aggregated and anonymous.
