SSISearch will be celebrating the companyâs success over the past year, where it has experienced marked growth in the number of banks publishing their own reference data on its Global Directory product.
The company believes this accelerated growth is the result of launching a commercial payments solution early in 2005, as well as moving to a strategy that allows banks and financial institutions to display their settlement information to other users free of any charges.
"The move into commercial payments is based on our core principles of helping banks and financial institutions to reduce their exposure to the operational risk in settlement, improve their STP rates and find more efficiencies in the back office," comments Ben Cleaveley, Product Development Manager, SSISearch. "The switch in strategy to allow banks to list their information on a âfree to publishâ basis is simply the next step to achieving our ultimate goal of becoming the industry standard for the storage, maintenance and retrieval of guaranteed accurate, self maintained, fully authenticated reference data."
Cleaveley believes that these developments, coupled with the fact that the market appears to be shifting itsâ focus towards quality as well as quantity when it comes to reference data, are behind the growth in the number of banks wanting to publish authenticated information through the companyâs Global Directory website.
He continues, "Weâve spent a lot of time since starting the SSISearch project two and a half years ago championing the cause for absolute accuracy when it comes to standard settlement instructions and payment processing advice. With the market now shifting its attention towards that goal and the acceptance of our methodology amongst the payment markets key players, it looks like our efforts will stand us in good stead for the future."
