Supply Chain Finance: Improved Integrated Workflow and Customer Experience
As part of ACI’s integrated workflow and customer experience focus, a Supply Chain Finance module was added to the UP Transaction Banking capabilities. This module offers financial institutions a buyer-centric Supply Chain Finance platform to manage approved-payable transactions. With open account processing on the rise, the Supply Chain Finance module helps streamline activity surrounding these transactions and gives suppliers the opportunity to improve control over their cash flow while reducing capital requirements.
Swift Certification for ACI Money Transfer System
The payment and SWIFT messaging engine of UP Transaction Banking, ACI Money Transfer System, has received the SWIFT InterAct Store and Forward interface certification. The SWIFT certification verifies the messaging protocol used to support the migration to ISO 20022 from the FIN flat file format. As the industry adopts ISO 20022 as the preferred industry format for infrastructures such as Euro1/Step1 and TARGET2, Money Transfer System enables a seamless transition in processing the XML-based standard.
