NDC eCommerce announced the introduction of Global eXchange, a new service that provides financial institutions and their customers with the ability to perform file and message translation via the Internet, private network, e-mail or fax. Global eXchange operates 24 x 7 from NDC’s secure European Operations Centre and supports any message format set, whether it is SWIFT MT100, MT 942, PAXEXT, or DOCAPP. Its design means that it is capable of managing many formats, file headers, trailers and security envelopes within the same release. The European service lets customers support many open message standards such as SWIFT, EDIFACT and ANSI. Specific ad hoc customer requests can also be interfaced between many ERP systems and a shared centre location.
