TAS SpA, leader in the supply of software and services for banking and financial applications, has been confirmed by Swift as its Regional Partner and Expertise Centre for Italy and the Mediterranean area.
TAS was confirmed following a review by SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) of its partner management model, because the TAS business model was found to correspond to the values identified by SWIFT as companies selection criteria: creating value for customers, placing customers at the centre of business activity, building solid relationships with partners and offering integrated solutions.
Thanks to its leadership and know-how in the payment systems area in Italy, along with its consolidated commercial relationships with the major players in the Italian financial market, TAS has been confirmed as SWIFT Regional Partner and Expertise Centre, two categories that in SWIFT's new model replace the previous designations “SWIFT Business Partner” and “SWIFT Service Partner”. The first category is attributed for geographical leadership and strong positioning in the domestic market, while “Expertise Centre” represents the company's high qualifications in terms of technical competence and know-how.
Thus as of 2000 the collaborative relationship between TAS and SWIFT continues for the sale, installation, integration and support of all the SWIFT products and projects in Italy, aimed at satisfying the broadest requirements of the financial community.
TAS is undergoing SWIFT certification for the product suite GARI GOLD TRANSACTION FLOW MANAGER (GG TFM) in the area of payment systems, for the effective management of interbank payments. The will-be SWIFT certified solutions are: GG TFM for EAI, GG TFM for Cash Reporting, GG TFM for Exceptions and Investigations, GG TFM for SEPA, GG TFM for Funds.
