What are the challenges of banking connectivity for corporates?

There are many challenges that corporates face while achieving secure and efficient banking connectivity. Many companies suffer significant losses due to poor liquidity management, extended times to obtain information, lack of standardization by dealing with various channels, and manual and overloaded operational processes throughout their treasury.

While there are different ways to do this, from primary banking portals to custom host-to-host connectivity and even API connectivity, the need for end-to-end solutions that make it easy to communicate with multiple banking partners around the world has grown today.

The challenges of banking connectivity for corporates

Need to have efficient connections

The main desire of companies is to reduce the number of accounts to simplify their banking cycle and ultimately reduce operating costs. Companies now enjoy a broad geographic presence to attract customers around the world. To obtain a precise and global vision of the operation, it is essential to have efficient connections that allow treasurers to eliminate every possible error and communication risk. Many companies also continued to see their IT budgets evaporate due to regulatory and compliance transformation. As a result, they get limited funds to replace their solutions’ legacy infrastructure with agile solutions.

Secure channels for the information journey

Since the information that travels through different channels is vulnerable to data theft, having a good channel for keeping the security of information is essential. Indeed, the task to manually upload and download data, establish multiple connections, and constantly monitor them doesn’t only demand for extra efforts, but also increases risk factor. In turn, it can be a difficult task if you do not have the appropriate infrastructure and the necessary expertise. Improving the integration processes and reducing the interaction between the parties involved has become the highest priority.

Problems associated with facing different bank interfaces

Most companies have multiple banking relationships, which means another challenge. As a matter of fact, it is necessary to unify the standards of formats and transaction codes, among the banks to provide a single and legible view of the information.

Real-time information

More timely information and better monitoring and reconciliation of payments are vital to increasing the visibility of balances and, therefore, cash flow. Another big challenge that companies face is the possibility of receiving confirmations: an ACK (Acknowledgement) and NACK (Negative Acknowledgment). As businesses send hundreds and even thousands of payments every day through different banking channels, the challenges related to tracking the status of each transfer and updating cash positions can be significant.

Long implementation times

In addition to the high complexities in the field of banking connectivity, which includes dealing with various protocols, formats, and technologies, ensuring successful and standardized implementation with your banks has become an even more challenging integration process.

Allocation of resources to establish connectivity

As if that were not enough, the high investment in time is proportional to the allocation of resources to be able to carry out the connections that companies require. That is why, it is vital to increase automation, standardize connectivity solutions, optimize treasury processes, and choose the ideal partner to simplify banking communication and reduce operating costs.
