In response to the changing financial and economic landscape, Sentenial has launched a SEPA Ready2Receive (R2R) package. The solution is designed to help banks across Europe to meet SEPA Direct Debit (SDD) compliance requirements with minimal cost and minimal disruption, in time for the November 2009 deadline.
The company describes the solution as a streamlined package, designed to address only the core SEPA compliance obligations for debtor banks. By tackling direct debits in isolation of other payment instruments and focusing solely on the mandatory receiving obligations, Sentenial claims that SEPA R2R keeps interfacing effort, associated timelines and project cost, to a minimum.
To further accelerate implementations, the company offers a managed delivery service through partner organisations, including CapGemini, who are trained in and already working on a number of Sentenial product implementation projects.
