Connect to SWIFT

Meeting your connectivity needs, from multi-banking to multi-networking

Making connections

Different organisations have different connectivity needs. If you’re a corporation, smaller bank or investment manager, you may be looking for a cost-effective connection which allows you to connect to multiple partners in a consistent way. Naturally you want a high level of resiliency and availability – but you may also be looking for a connection which has a light footprint and minimal infrastructure to maintain.

Mid-sized to large customers, meanwhile, may require a connection that allows them to connect single or multiple destinations to SWIFT while automating system management tasks as fully as possible. As well as maximum resiliency and availability, you need a connection which can exchange high volumes of messages and files. You need a high level of straight through processing between your business applications and SWIFT – and you may also want the flexibility to support a multi-network structure for files and message processing.

Your challenges

  • Reducing total cost of ownership of your on-premises solutions.
  • Ensuring resiliency and zero downtime for your customers.
  • Connecting to multiple banks via a single communication channel.

As a corporate, investment manager or smaller bank, you may connect to numerous banks using a variety of individual connections, resulting in inefficiency and high costs. You may also have limited IT resources.

As a mid-sized or large customer, your clients demand low running costs and maintenance requirements. Clients also want to minimise the impact of infrastructure failures on their businesses – making continuity solutions a high priority.
