This move underlines the company's commitment to providing market-leading SWIFT services and extending the benefits of the SWIFT network to corporates and financial institutions of any size.
"The up-front investment required for institutions to join the SWIFT network has often prevented all but the largest from benefiting from direct access, particularly when expecting full integration with their business processes," states Gil Bray, Solutions Director, Misys. "Our SWIFT services proposition removes that barrier by offering integrated SWIFTNet access as a service for corporations and financial institutions either standalone or embedded into existing Misys products. Many more customers are now able to make financial transactions more securely, at a lower cost and with a deeper level of business integration."
Misys has an enviable track record in this market, having provided customers with a hosted SWIFT data centre for over 18 years,
delivering and receiving financial messages for treasury confirmation matching and trade finance. During this time, Misys customers have benefited from the highest standards of security and support. The company's state-of-the-art data centre can boast an unbroken record of 100% availability - not once requiring a switch over to its back-up data centre or suffering a system outage.
In addition to SWIFTNet connectivity, Misys is also able to offer its hosted data centre services for corporations or financial
institutions seeking to outsource their disaster recovery back-up centres. The service is supported by a dedicated team that is available in the three major time zones and is also supported by a trained systems and operations group.
