Streamline and automate your exception management processes
Sending money overseas can be complex. There are country, currency and regulatory-specific payment obligations to meet, particular formatting to take into account and the possible need for human intervention due to omissions or errors. This can result in a payment being held for further investigation before it can be processed, otherwise known as an exception, which can take a considerable amount of time and effort to be resolved.
Using our ‘in-flight’, cloud-based case resolution service, users can easily handle queries between banks on the Swift network and resolve instances when payment information is incorrect or missing.
Case resolution is now an integral part of our standard exceptions and investigations procedure… The total timeframe of investigation becomes 3-5 days shorter and the payee gets the money sooner.
How does it work?
Case resolution offers improved transparency via the Tracker, enabling you to follow enquiry requests anywhere in the transaction journey and record related interbank communications in an audit trail.
This innovative service significantly shortens resolution times, smartly routing enquiry requests to the right agent to ensure a timely follow-up. It also drastically reduces manual intervention, utilising an ISO 20022-based format and structured codes to standardise communications and avoid duplicate enquiries on the same payment.
The service can be used via FIN, Tracker GUI and API.
Centrally access ISO 20022 rich data with the Case Resolution Rich Data Access feature
This new feature facilitates banks’ implementation of the CBPR+ Data Integrity Market Practice Guidance, providing users with central and instant access to rich data in cases where a transaction's format is downgraded from ISO 20022 to MT.
The Rich Data Access feature is universally available to all Swift users requiring access to ISO 20022’s rich data. It’s available for free – with no subscription or onboarding required. You can easily access this functionality through the SWIFT gpi and Basic Tracker Graphical User Interface (GUI).
