The rapid digital evolution makes everyone feel well-equipped with innovative technologies and adaptable solutions in response to the needs and demands of the customers. What’s the catch? It’s the SWIFT gpi for corporates! Being a key player in the financial industry, SWIFT gpi is also bringing up a portfolio for corporates to overcome the challenges of multi-banking to experience fast and more transparent transaction experiences.
Price is what you pay. Value is what you get
This statement perfectly suits the cross-border transactional process for corporates. Since the medieval period, international transactions have been veiled in mystery. The absence of a common standard, transaction language, or even myriad middlewares added fuel to the fire. Moreover, the secrecy of knowing the payment status, delivery dates, and even the whole process had so far been very manual.
The payments tracker has been rolled out to enable users to trace cross-border payments in real-time: SWIFT gpi. Its capability is designed and built-in conjunction with the requirements of corporates and financial institutions.
And a perfect response to a common compliant from the SWIFT users for not getting transparency on payment status and even lacking the multi-banking facility to initiate and track payments across multiple banks. In general, SWIFT gpi for Corporates (g4C) addresses below shared four core principles:
Honestly, g4C results from the ground-breaking partnership between financial institutions and corporates to revolutionize cross-border payments for corporates without any hassle. Retrospectively, people were stuck between the traditional styled corresponding banking with no transparency and swiftness for inbound and outbound tracking.
This new facility, g4C payment allowing tracking, is now real-time. With the help of API’s corporates can track their own payments or via banks. However, subscribing to the gpi for corporates is a prerequisite for using these APIs over the SWIFT network.
We, ECS Fin are well-equipped with the desired APIs required and the platform to provide corporates real-time views of their payment status and cash positions by using SWIFT ISO 20022 as a common standard on our IMS Payment platform. Build a new and open partner ecosystem to experience swift g4C features with IMS SWIFT gpi that allows a single centralized and standardized view across all their corporate partners.
In this competitive and fraud prevalent world, transparency for every transaction has become the norm. g4C allows the corporates to integrate the gpi easily flows into their treasury applications (TMS/ERP), providing multi-bank corporates to track and initiate their outgoing payments and get notifications about incoming payments.
The most important characteristic of cross-border transaction processing is its transparency about the fees. Now, all the gpi banks are required to offer full transparency and visibility on the deduction on a transactional basis. In fact, the provision of a breakdown of all the costs involved in processing, including exchange-rate costs, should be visible.
SWIFT gpi holds great potential for same-day use of funds. If the payment may not be processed by the end of the day for specific reasons, the receiver or sender will receive the confirmation message stating pending status. Overall, strengthening the commercial relationship with the suppliers with greater speed and reliability.
A specific Unique-End-to-End Transaction Reference (UETR) is assigned for every transaction, which tracks the payment throughout the entire lifecycle. The process finalizes with the confirmation message showing end-to-end tracking functionality to all gpi participants. It has been observed that approximately half of the gpi payments are transferred within half an hour to end beneficiaries.
Information regarding the payment remains homogenous and unaltered during the process of establishing a robust relationship between corporates and banks.
The biggest innovations we have decoded this year are central to the customer’s requirements to support the revolutionized digital transformation in the financial industry. We, at ECS Fin is ready to respond and embrace all the challenges underway to yield great results, be it the adoption of ISO 20022, SWIFT Go, SWIFT gpi for banks, and SWIFT g4C, CSP certification, Core-banking platforms, or digital banking.
ECS Fin is also good to go with the newly launched in-flow translation services of SWIFT to make migration from MT to MX easier.
In-flow translation service capability with IMS Message hub and IMS Payments is perfect for making a smooth transition to the rich data standard.
