Atos Worldline has received the SWIFTReady Connectivity Best Practice label from the global messaging co-operative SWIFT. Only SWIFT partners that meet the highest operational standards in availability, security, access control and resiliency are awarded the best practice accreditation. The Atos Worldline service operates at the highest levels of security and resiliency, and offers significant outsourcing business benefits such as a reduction in in-house IT infrastructure costs and capital investment.
The Atos Worldline SWIFT service bureau allows corporations and financial institutions to communicate with their counterparties through one highly secure and standardised global messaging channel. The service covers all the operational SWIFT connectivity needs of corporates and financial institutions including payments, treasury management, foreign exchange (FX) confirmations, trade finance as well as other messaging flows.
Bert Vanbrabant, head of service bureau e-community services at Atos Worldline, said: “We are particularly proud to be recognised as one of the leading service bureaus in the world. This label underlines our commitment to continued innovation in corporate connectivity and payments, as more corporates move to centralised cloud-based services.

Our SWIFT service bureau is a cornerstone of our corporate payments suite which integrates our payment factory, SWIFT connectivity and SEPA [single euro payments area] services in one, complete package.”
