As the SEPA scheme becomes applicable for non-Euro countries as well, EximBank, a Romanian state-owned bank dedicated to corporate financing, chooses to partner with Allevo in order to ensure the smooth alignment of bank operations to the Sepa standard.
By implementing the open-source transactions processing solution offered by Allevo, the bank now processes its low-value payment instructions denominated in Euro according to the industry requirements.
Moreover, EximBank benefits of a SWIFT validated solution for its conformity with SEPA (FinTP received the SWIFTReady SEPA label in 2008 and 2009) and of a practice proven open source solution, live with other banking customers both in Romania and abroad.
The successful collaboration between EximBank and Allevo started one year ago, when the bank chose to implement FinTP, the open source application for financial transactions processing developed by Allevo.
EximBank now takes one step further with the implementation of the feature dedicated to SEPA compliance. FinTP offers a technology that drives cost reduction and conveys full control over the source code of the application, thus eliminating the common vendor lock-in dependence, while gaining access to a transparent product development process and transparent product audit.
“EximBank is constantly concerned with upgrading its IT infrastructure aiming at supporting an improvement in services’ quality. We opted for Allevo’s solution dedicated to ensuring SEPA compliance after working closely with the company for automating the bank’s operations flows in relation with the external networks, but also considering the company’s expertise”, said Traian Halalai, Executive President of EximBank.
Sorina Bera, CEO Allevo, commented, “Allevo is constantly working to ensure our customers implement competitive solutions for their financial transaction processing in accordance with industry requirements, standards compliance included. We are recognized as one of the software vendors that allow our customers to remain competitive and improve their infrastructure for a long time now.”
