Another successful migration of 24 banks in 9 countries to BOX for SWIFTNet

Erste Group is one of the largest financial services providers in Central and Eastern Europe. More than 50,000 employees serve 17.4 million clients in 8 countries. Initially the banks in the group ran many independent systems for SWIFT message handling. Together with their IT solutions provider s IT Solutions Erste Group set up a project team with the ambitious goal to replace this heterogeneous landscape by one unified system, which would provide rich application functions, smoothly integrate with the financial applications of the banks and guarantee outstanding performance and maximum availability.

In early 2007 it was decided to implement the new solution based on INTERCOPE’s BOX for SWIFTNet (BOX) and today 24 banks in 9 countries are live with the new solution which handles some 50,000 SWIFT messages per day. “With the migration to one unique BOX for SWIFTNet instance we can provide an excellent and cost efficient service level for our customers and are well prepared for new requirements such as processing and conversion of MX-messages” states Andreas Görlich, Senior Operations Manager SWIFT with s IT Solutions.  To read the whole story click here.
