Equens has chosen CoCoNet’s Multiversa International Banking Server (IBS) to extend its single euro payments area (SEPA) services. Equens currently offers corporate payments services for SEPA and national standards for international banks. With CoCoNet’s Multiversa IBS Equens is able to extend its SEPA payment services to its international corporate customers. Equens offers this service without affecting the contact between the corporate customer and the bank and enables the bank to keep in control of the payments.
“With the new service we offer the European market our new strategic connectivity platform for banks and for corporate customers as a neutral white label service. Services such as SEPA, electronic account statements and cash management will be offered in a generic but customisable, individual way to the maximum benefit of our European clients,” said Ralph Weik, general manager business centre payments, Equens.
