Improved analytics, less manual intervention

With 740 different messages within ISO 20022, ranging from fee collection to file management, global finance is entering an era of information abundance. With more data and more uniformity, ISO 20022 is a series of welcome and timely improvements for any finance or treasury professional who deals with payments:

Data quality & richness

Financial messages will now use structured data – for better accuracy and completeness, and fewer errors, exceptions, or manual interventions.

Able to carry more information, ISO 20022 messages will enable better reconciliation, auditing, and reporting.

Standardisation & collaboration

You’ll communicate worldwide using the same language, whatever the shape, size, or sector.

Close working between your finance and tech teams during implementations will mean smooth transition and effective ongoing support.

Technological compatibility

Seamless compatibility with APIs and cloud-based solutions means more automation, better visibility, and more robust integration of financial systems.

Regulatory compliance

Adhering to ISO 20022 will make regulation and compliance easier to follow, many governing bodies are already adopting it as their standard and expecting it from their member organisations.
