Sterci, the international leader in the development of SOA solutions for STP, can today announce that they have passed the full interface qualification programme for SwiftNet 7.
Sterci STP solutions are used by 250 customers in 20 countries including the SIMPLEX service bureau in London.
SWIFTNet 7 is one of the largest and most extensive upgrades of the SWIFT network and its protocols in many years - since the SWIFTNet IP 2003 migration . The migration is scheduled for conclusion by March 2012, yet the upgrade is not fully understood by all players in the marketplace who must effect their changes in what is now a short period of time.
With SWIFTNet 7.0, SWIFT has extended the interface qualification programme to mandate qualification of all software applications that send or receive InterAct or FileAct traffic. The programme is published on swift.com and includes 6 new qualification modules:
- Communication Interface
- RMA for SCORE
- Full RMA Interface
- InterAct Store and Forward
- FileAct Store and Forward
- FileAct Real Time
STERCI is the first vendor to have passed successfully the complete qualification programme. Stelink is the best-in-class product with a best grade of 6/6 credits.
Etienne Savatier, Head of International Sales and Partnerships, comments "This qualification programme was the most complex and difficult that we have ever passed in 25 years of relationship with SWIFT. We are very proud to be the first messaging interface vendor fully qualified for SWIFTNet 7. Once again this proves our commitment to the SWIFT evolution and rewards our investment and long term strategy. Our world-class messaging solution includes the full SWIFT services FIN, RMA, FileAct, and InterAct as well as other network protocols.
