Systar's Financial Message Monitoring Solution Earns 2009 SWIFTReady Label
BusinessBridge for Financial Message Monitoring enables financial institutions to read, analyze and act on financial messages and files before they hit internal processing applications. It also extends monitoring capabilities for outbound messages from backend systems into the SWIFT gateway. This extended insight, covering end-to-end processes and into the SWIFT network, provides the advanced warning necessary to avoid missing payments that impact the financial institution and its clients.
SWIFT enables over 8,300 financial institutions in more than 208 countries to exchange millions of standardized financial messages daily. SWIFT awards product certification labels, based on a meticulous review process, to assist its user community in selecting third-party applications and services. Its SWIFTReady Application Alliance Plug-In label is awarded to compliant software that enriches the Alliance Access with business features that reduce operational risk, improve system performance and ensure regulatory compliance.
"We are pleased to award Systar with the SWIFTReady label," said Eric Meirlaen, Business Development Manager at SWIFT.
