The launch enables the bank’s corporate clients across 40 countries to benefit from a highly secure file-transfer protocol for their BNP Paribas accounts worldwide.
The bank added that the new offer is well suited for German customers (large corporates and mid-caps) looking to manage their accounts abroad by leveraging their existing German IT infrastructure. It is also meant for early adopters building a second-generation payment factory. Corporates are able to use one single file format such as extensible markup language (XML) for multiple transactions in different countries.
