“New compliance regulations are driving the mid to small financial institution market to find better ways to manage their wire service,” added Eric Dotson, EVP of Sales at Aptys Solutions. “With the introduction of this integrated platform, FIs will benefit from a user-rich experience that allows them to take advantage of unattended SWIFT and Fed wire processing and lets them reduce operational costs and re-focus on core banking functions.”
