Bridging the gap between your back-office operations and Swift

Minimising manual intervention and increasing straight-through processing in financial messaging can help you improve operational efficiency and reduce costs.

Sometimes integration challenges can get in the way. Your back office systems may use message formats or communication methods that are not compatible with Swift messaging standards and formats, such as MT, MX, ISO15022 and ISO20022.

Whether you’re connecting to Swift via Alliance Lite2, Alliance Access or a service bureau, you will need to bridge your back-office systems with your Swift messaging platform. We provide a range of software solutions to transform data from proprietary message formats to Swift message formats – and vice versa.
