Cloud computing is now a reality for Jameson Bank (headquartered in Toronto, Canada) who has decided to go with the Expertus Service Bureau. After many months of research on cloud computing and Service Bureau, Jameson decided to take the plunge.
Jameson's business drivers were very important and well defined in regards to their choice of Service Bureau and it was essential that the Expertus offering fully supported their business objectives. With its added value services such as Monetis Global Payment solution, message filtering and regulatory reporting, Expertus was the perfect solution for Jameson. In addition to offering more than just SWIFT connectivity, the Expertus Service Bureau is SAS70 compliant and has received the SWIFTReady Service Best Practice label which was also a must in Jameson Bank's selection criteria.
Kevin J. Arbour, Chief Information and Technology Officer at Jameson Bank explains: "Cloud computing was a strategic decision for Jameson as a means to accelerate the Bank's market entry. As an accredited SWIFT partner we chose Expertus for their knowledge and experience in providing SWIFT services and the suite of tools that met our current and future business needs while also ensuring our ability to meet our regulatory obligations. Expertus is an ideal partner for Jameson as we continue to grow our business and they have provided us with the means to reduce our Total Cost of Ownership while ensuring we maximize the value of the SWIFT network."
Jacques Leblanc, CEO at Expertus adds, "We see a really strong demand on the market with this business model and we are delighted to welcome Jameson, our 20th client in our Service Bureau, and implement them quickly and easily in the cloud to our SaaS service. With the very strict Canadian regulatory environment, with which Expertus is compliant, we are currently well-positioned to offer this similar cloud service to other customers anywhere in the world. "
