The right tools for cross-border payments

For a long time, cross-border and high-value payments were considered a less innovative segment of the financial industry. Apart from the introduction of online banking, little has changed here in recent decades. But then numerous FinTechs entered the market for easily standardised financial services. And now the European and international payments landscape is changing ever more dynamically: ISO 20022, SWIFT gpi and instant payments are the buzzwords of payments of the future.

Everything is new in global payments:

  • European and global financial service providers are constantly faced with new regulations and standardisations.
  • FinTechs are pushing into the market with innovative financial services.
  • Customer expectations are constantly increasing.
  • The solution is process optimisation, consistent digitalisation and the right strategy.
  • PPI brings decades of expertise to the consulting process.

Milestones on the way to the financial landscape of tomorrow

Simple, fast and transparent payments processing in a secure environment with better service quality is just one goal of cross-border payments. SWIFT gpi addresses precisely this issue, but of course, a single new service is not enough. Innovative cross-border real-time payments services are transforming the global financial landscape.

The ongoing task of integration

At the same time, financial institutions have to continuously adapt new regulations, standardisations and initiatives from the industry – such as the ISO 20022 standard in TARGET2 or SWIFT. The initiatives are driven by various players and hold the potential for massive upheaval in the international payments landscape. In order to hold strong in the face of this, financial institutions must optimise their processes, use new technologies and consistently implement digitalisation strategies.
