MyStandards platform

The ultimate tool to manage standards definitions and industry practice more efficiently

The strategic advantage for banks

MyStandards offers banks an efficient way to document their message formats across payment types and markets. Now your corporate customers can access and compare requirements easily, improving the onboarding experience and timescales.

Global financial standards have transformed payments and cash management, and significantly improved interoperability. Still, there remain many important variations in practice across markets and financial institutions – for example, ISO 20022 guidelines for host-to-host channels.

Easier onboarding for your customers with MyStandards

Keeping everyone informed and in sync with variations and changes to message formats and specifications is essential to successful implementations – but it can be expensive and difficult to manage.

MyStandards provides a collaborative, online solution to manage standards definitions and industry usage more efficiently and cost-effectively.
