SWISSRISK Financial Systems’ FinTRACE solution is used by leading institutions and provides both, rich functionality same as robustness and scalability – allowing to address any kind of business requirements at any bank.

Following global market trends and customer demands, FinTRACE has been further enhanced to process exceptions and investigations coming from business areas beyond the payments arena with highest possible STP rates. FinTRACE covers transactional and non-transactional investigations. As a consequence, financial institutions are not only able to streamline their cost related to manpower and IT avoiding the redundancy of former silo-based processing. In addition, customers are able to run enterprise-wide queries and reports leading to enhanced monitoring of the business and the chance to detect and analyze problematic processes. Apart from this, the new approach enables banks to have a comprehensive look on their operational risk and improve overall customer services. Thanks to the broad coverage of business processes clients have a much stronger business case to decide for FinTRACE.

SWISSRISK Financial System sees significant potential to further expand its market leading position in this area through its new offering.

We are now in a position to help them the best way and I do appreciate the very positive feedback we are getting from the market a lot” adds Georg Sauberer.

“FinTRACE has been constantly enhanced over the past years. However, with our innovative GCCI - Generic Case Creation Interface we were able to jump another major hurdle. We are now in a position to address any kind of investigation processes in banks of any sizes” says Dirk Vesper, VP Product Management at SWISSRISK Financial Systems.
