Only software products that are compliant with all tests, including the proactive implementation of new SWIFT standards, receive the SWIFTReady GOLD label. SWIFTReady is an accreditation program run by SWIFT for various categories of software such as payment systems, reconciliation systems etc.
Cloverleaf®finance is categorised in the Financial EAI - Enterprise Application Integration segment, and signifies a specified level of interoperability with the SWIFT network. To achieve the GOLD label for Financial EAI, products have to, as a minimum, support the full SWIFT message library including Market Practice compliance for ISO15022 messages, demonstrate facilitation of Straight Through Processing (e.g. by transformation and routing capability) and offer various connection methods to the SWIFT network via SWIFTAlliance. Cloverleaf®finance also supports a means of cross-referencing the contents of a message to its underlying business meaning and full message syntax and validation requirements.
