Veritran and Swift Come Together to ‘Overcome Increasing Fragmentation’ of Cross-Border Payments

Global tech firm Veritran has partnered with Swift, the world’s leading provider of financial messaging services, to enable financial institutions to offer an enhanced, streamlined and more transparent cross-border payment experience to their customers.

By joining the Swift Partner Programme, Veritran customers can offer their end users access to several Swift solutions that aim to increase transparency and security in cross-border payments:

  • The Swift ‘GPI Tracker’ enhances transparency in cross-border payments by enabling users to check a payment’s status
  • Payment pre-validation increases security by validating beneficiary data before a payment is sent
  • SwiftRef, Swift’s payments reference data solution, helps to streamline payment operations and enables users to find all the data sets they need in one place
  • Users also gain full visibility of a payment cost, including the FX rate, upfront.
