We simplify the complexity of multi-banking for corporates
You send and receive payments worldwide, so you need a single channel to connect to all your banking partners
Reach all your payment banks through a single channel
You use multiple-banks. And you need a single way to do business.
Doing the best for your business means working with the right partners. So when it comes to payments, you may be working with different banks in different markets and geographies.
But being multi-banked can add complexity and cost to your operations because of different systems, security protocols, formats and processes for each of these partners. It can also reduce visibility across your cash positions and increase operational risks because data becomes fragmented and inconsistent.
With our solutions for corporates you can reach financial institutions worldwide through one reliable channel, using global messaging standards and common formats and processes. Our messaging services carry your bulk payment files or individual payments securely and efficiently, ensuring error-free straight through processing and timely reconciliation. You can also receive standardised account reporting giving you centralised visibility across all your accounts.
And our connectivity solutions are bank-neutral, giving you the flexibility to work with the partners you choose.
