Fundtech White Paper Outlines Best Practices in Choosing a Connectivity Partner

Published 

— Corporates of all sizes increasingly seek reliable, integrated connectivity solutions that add value and scale to evolving needs

New York –  Fundtech, a market leader in global transaction banking solutions, today released a white paper listing nine key considerations for choosing a connectivity partner. Titled “Best Practices in Choosing a Connectivity Partner,” it serves as a guide to corporates that seek to connect to banks (via SWIFTNet, for example) in order to enable their business to take advantage of standardized payments and messaging. 

As globalization gathers pace and even smaller corporates conduct international business, financial messaging connectivity via a service bureau is moving down market, and appealing to corporates of all sizes. As more and more corporates realize the value that a connectivity provider could bring, it is important that they not only consider the partner’s attributes and capabilities, but also their own unique needs and how they may evolve in the future. The right partner can improve straight-through processing rates, streamline banking relationships, enhance working capital management, and increase fraud prevention—and will scale with the corporate as it grows and evolves.

“By selecting the right connectivity partner, a corporate will gain the benefit of a solution and service that will adapt to its expanding needs,” says Per Trifunovic, Chief Executive Officer of Fundtech’s BBP business unit. “Put simply selecting the right connectivity partner is not just a decision for today, but one that has implications that will continue for years to come.”

The white paper contains two case studies exploring corporates that have benefited from a using a service bureau for financial messaging connectivity. The first case study looks at how Coca Cola Hellenic used a connectivity partner to centralize treasury and upgrade its messaging infrastructure. The second study on Swiss Re shows how the company quickly realized improved inbound and outbound messaging information and improved its cash management capabilities, among other things.
