Intellect Global Transaction Banking (iGTB) achieves SWIFT Certified 2021 status for its market-leading intelligent Trade Finance product

Intellect Global Transaction Banking (iGTB) achieves SWIFT Certified 2021 status for its market-leading intelligent Trade Finance product

Validation for iGTB’s Trade Finance solution as a SWIFT-compatible product reflects iGTB’s ongoing commitment both to its partnership with SWIFT and to its efforts to enhance economic inclusion and sustainable (track’n’trace) trade as part of digital (paperless) transformation 

London, September 23, 2021 Intellect Global Transaction Banking (iGTB), the transaction banking specialist from Intellect Design Arena Limited, ranked #1 in the world for Transaction Banking by IBS Intelligence, is delighted to announce that its Trade Finance product has been awarded the SWIFT Compatible Application Trade Finance Label for 2021. This is the 3rd consecutive year that iGTB’s fully digital Trade Finance product has been awarded this label. It demonstrates the solution’s exceptionally strong capabilities to align to complex and evolving SWIFT Standards while embracing both digital transformation (including the much-sought-after goal of paperless) and sustainability (including the universal need now for product track’n’trace).

SWIFT Compatible Application labels are awarded exclusively to providers that deliver quality services and products to their customers while acting in accordance with the highest professional standards. The awarding of this label is compelling evidence that the iGTB Trade Finance product adheres fully to the specified criteria for SWIFT FIN (MT) messages, SWIFT connectivity and SWIFT interoperability.

iGTB’s intelligent Trade Finance product has been fully updated with all of the changes required not only to enable a client bank to remain SWIFT-compliant, but also to revolutionise the bank’s trade business with an enhanced range of digitised products and services, including intelligent data extraction form its AI/ML IDX “paper-killer.” iGTB recognises the market-driven ambition of SWIFT to introduce more structured data into transaction processing: this simultaneously opens up the opportunity for banks to enhance workflow and to drive innovation. In order to help a bank take full advantage of the additional value this data structuring brings, iGTB is not simply replacing one message type with another, but taking into consideration how these changes can transform the overall Contextual User Experience.

manish-maakan-ceoManish Maakan, CEO, iGTB, said “This latest award validates our ongoing commitment towards adopting and sustaining industry standards across the entire global banking industry, and it comes on the back of having completed Europe’s largest ever trade finance transformation project. Global trade has trebled since 2000 reaching over $18 trillion, so the need for strong digital trade finance has never been higher. I am delighted that we can demonstrate accredited high quality.”

Maakan added, “Digitalization is central to sustainable trade finance. With iGTB Trade Finance, banks will combine technological innovation and digitalization with sustainable business practice, driving innovation and growth, whilst at the same time supporting the transition to a sustainable economy. iGTB’s Trade Finance team is committed to deliver unparalleled solutions that are both innovative and transformational, supporting economic inclusion and sustainability.”

In today’s world where more than 90% of trade messages are communicated via SWIFT, this label is another feather in the cap for iGTB’s Trade Finance product, which is designed to automate every step of the trade finance business, with integrated workflow management, service level management and electronic document management processing. The solution is designed to satisfy and support the complete processing and reporting needs for documentary credits, collections, guarantees and reimbursements. It also includes the full range of SWIFT MT798 Corporate to Bank (C2B) and Bank to Corporate (B2C) messages.

Aité Novarica’s case study of Santander fuelled by iGTB

Santander achieve “an incredible 70% average improvement of KPIs” say Aité-Novarica in their independent case study of the Santander’s Cash Nexus Global Payments platform, fuelled by iGTB

iGTB congratulates Santander on the remarkable and successful rollout of this new corporate payments platform to 15 countries across three continents from a single installation, powering a basket of quantified, impressive results.

London, September 9, 2021: Intellect Global Transaction Banking (iGTB), the transaction banking specialist from Intellect Design Arena Limited, ranked #1 in the world for Transaction Banking by IBS Intelligence, is honoured to have played a part in this remarkable transformation, recognised by Aité-Novarica, the leading independent financial services insights and advisory firm.

Their Payments Case Study report “Implementing a Market Leading Global Payments Platform,” by highly respected analyst Erika Baumann, Research Director, Commercial Banking and Payments Practice, and published today, shows how Santander, one of the largest banks in Europe and the 16AiteNovearica th largest banking institution in the world, “created a market-leading global payments platform that did not previously exist in the market.”

Implementation of this platform led to an enviable 70% average improvement of key performance indicators around client implementation time, transaction processing, and connectivity.

As a global financial institution with footprints and clients in multiple geographies, Santander faced many challenges in providing a consistent payment or service experience across regions to its corporate clients, including navigating the local payments network and regulatory mandates for 15 countries on 3 continents.

Santander launched Cash Nexus, partnering with iGTB and using its Payments Service Hub, a channel for corporate collection and payment transactions in various countries, using international standard formats such as ISO20022. It is a single payments platform for all global regions that provides Santander’s clients global visibility into accounts from this single platform, available through multiple channels, from which they can initiate and track all incoming and outgoing payments.

It also provides agility to Santander in on-boarding new customers – while reducing time to market. As a result of this successful initiative, Santander was not only able to create a differentiated and superior client experience for its corporate clients, but create impressive, quantified results:

  • reduce average client implementation time by about 70%
  • increase transaction performance capabilities by an impressive 75%, and
  • become self-sufficient in implementing new countries in 65% less time.

The platform provides Santander clients with a unified payment experience with robust payment capabilities to access local schemes for domestic and cross border transactional needs and helped Santander to bring future-forward functionality and roadmap – including access to instant payments, real time liquidity, API based models and cloud based models – to the market.

The case study also highlights how iGTB’s market expertise and knowledge of the core markets Santander operates in (including Europe, the US and Latin America, specifically Brazil and Argentina that have complex regulatory environments and financial cultures) made it the vendor of choice for Santander in its transformation journey. If further calls out how the deep partnership and synergy between the two made these results possible, and shifted Santander’s position in the market to a true global payments leader.

Jose LuisJose Luis Calderón, Head of Global Transaction Banking, Santander, commented, “Recognizing that changing the payment platform is changing the heart of the bank, the partnership between Santander and Intellect has allowed Santander to bring the heartbeat and finish line of the future into today’s reality”.

Christine Barry, Head of Banking and Payments Insights at Aite-Novarica, says, “The partnership between Santander and Intellect Global Transaction Banking has created a market-leading global payments platform that did not previously exist. With the implementation of this new platform, Santander was able to transform its earlierCarlos Denche limitations, arising of its unique structure of local subsidiaries operating as independent financial institutions catering to local payment networks and regulations, into a clear market advantage, maintaining the local payment capabilities and relationships while creating a unified, single global payments platform. From a market perspective, the innovations reached through this partnership have created a new path for financial institutions to adopt a similar approach to streamline global operations, increase payments performance, penetrate local payment networks, and reduce client implementation timelines.”

Carlos Denche, Global IT Head for Global Transaction Banking, Santander, added, “Comparing the capabilities of new system with old one, the new system is much more flexible for operations to configure and operate, providing greater opportunity to run services in a way that accommodates how payments are evolving, readiness of further API connectivity, development of new payment tools, and more aggressive KPIs.”

Manish Maakan, CEO of iGTB, commented “What Santander has achieved is very impressive – to provide such amanish-maakan-ceo strong and consistent global customer service with rapid customer responses and catering to so many different country regimes. I am committed to corporate bank transformation and so I am delighted that iGTB played its part in the bank’s success from this single, global installation. This independent report adds another success story to validate our claim that the world’s best corporate banks bank on iGTB.”

Intellect Global Transaction Banking (iGTB) and essDOCS partner for digitalisation and automation of trade finance processes

Banks leveraging the new partnership between iGTB Trade Finance and essDOCS will benefit from a unique value proposition that will future-proof their business as digital transformation, paving the way for finally eliminating paper and age-old labour intensive business practices, typically leading to a 10% increase in revenues

London, UK 12 August, 2021: Intellect Global Transaction Banking (iGTB), the transaction banking specialist from Intellect Design Arena Limited, ranked #1 in the world for Transaction Banking by IBS Intelligence, today announces its partnership with essDOCS, the leading paperless global trade management company, to widen access to and adoption of trade digitalisation solutions.

Banks deploying iGTB Trade Finance, now in combination with the technology powerhouse of essDOCS used by nearly 60,000 companies in over 200 countries, will uniquely benefit from an ability to enable their corporate customers to extend their use of paperless trade, not only streamlining and automating document preparation processes but also eliminating the operational risks inherently associated with the manual processing of paper, thereby future proofing their business.

For generations, the business of trade and trade finance has been notoriously reliant on labour intensive paper-based processes, particularly with respect to crucial title documents such as bills of lading, warehouse warrants, bills of exchange and promissory notes. It is now increasingly clear that trade stakeholders require data to be made available by digital means, in a connected, secure online environment with real-time access to information.

Removing paper pain points in trade significantly reduces delays from document discrepancies, the most common cause, as well as supporting the increased availability of structured data for business intelligence purposes. Global trade banks could increase revenue by approximately 10% by adopting an integrated digital solution incorporating intelligent automation and collaborative digitalisation (source: Asian Banking & Finance).

alexander-goulandrisAlexander Goulandris, Co-CEO, essDOCS said, “We are excited to be collaborating with iGTB, with whom we share a common vision of enabling paperless trade by providing future-proof digital trade solutions that eliminate paper-based processes and make trade finance more secure, smarter and faster.”

essDOCS’ CargoDocs solution enables users to digitally prepare, manage, sign, legally transfer and e-present trade documentation in an auditable platform powered by automation. CargoDocs connects all trade value chain stakeholders (such as exporters, advising banks, issuing banks and importers) through its secure digital platform, which fully conforms with the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) eUCP and eURC regulations, in addition to the upcoming URDTT (Uniform Rules for Digital Trade Transactions).

By syncing with essDOCS, iGTB bank and corporate users will be able to access CargoDocs’ digital document capabilities and use the solution for trade finance transactions under Letters of Credit (LCs), Documentary Collections, Guarantees and more – allowing both banks and corporates to access all data and documents under any given financing instrument in a single, secure platform.

manish-maakan-ceoCommenting on the partnership, Manish Maakan, CEO, iGTB said, “Digital trade will reduce the cost of trade and finance and lead to more financial inclusion, and in turn yet more trade globally. Our alliance with essDOCS furthers our already extensive programme of partnerships with technology leaders in their field.”

He continued, “It is bound to increase operational savings by creating one standardised process and real time repository. Improving trade transparency and compliance while deploying tools which help to reduce risk, and the ability to automate transaction frameworks, will both play a big role for corporations to stay relevant in the ever-evolving world of trade. This partnership will capitalise on some superb leading-edge technology for trade digitisation, to help reduce time, errors, operational risk and stress in an industry that has for too long been dominated by paper and manual and inefficient processes.”

iGTB apporte de nouvelles solutions à la Société Générale

Référence mondiale, la solution contextuelle de gestion des liquidités LMS (Liquidity Management Solution) d’iGTB permettra à la Société Générale et à ses clients entreprises de bénéficier d’un moyen d’optimiser leurs liquidités, tout en libérant les excédents de trésorerie bloqués, en réduisant les risques et en atténuant les effets des taux d’intérêt négatifs.

Londres, le 3 mai 2021 : Intellect Global Transaction Banking (iGTB), division d’Intellect Design Arena Limited spécialisée dans les transactions bancaires et classée n°1 mondial par IBS Intelligence dans le domaine du Transaction Banking, vient d’annoncer qu’elle soutiendrait la Société Générale, principal acteur de l’économie depuis plus de 150 ans desservant quotidiennement 29 millions de clients et employeur de 138 000 personnes dans 62 pays, dans sa mise en œuvre de la solution de gestion des liquidités n°1 dans le monde.

Même si 2020 a été une année de grande résilience, elle a mis en évidence le besoin urgent pour les banques de fournir à leurs clients entreprises des mécanismes de gestion de trésorerie et des liquidités d’entreprise beaucoup plus sophistiqués, basés sur l’automatisation et la digitalisation. De nouvelles capacités sont nécessaires pour relever les défis combinés que constituent les taux d’intérêt négatifs, les restrictions sur la centralisation de trésorerie multi-devises et transfrontalière, les attentes croissantes en matière de libre-service et pour faire bénéficier les trésoriers d’entreprise de l’efficacité interfonctionnelle. En même temps, les institutions financières ont soigneusement consolidé leurs bilans et dynamisé les efficiences opérationnelles, afin d’être suffisamment fortes pour faire face à un environnement économique incertain.

Dans ce contexte, la Société Générale a choisi Intellect iGTB pour son système LMS (Liquidity Management System), référence mondiale des systèmes de gestion des liquidités.

Le système LMS d’iGTB et sa suite de produits de gestion des liquidités, ont été conçus sur la prémisse selon laquelle chaque euro de liquidité de l’entreprise finira éventuellement par constituer un euro de responsabilité bancaire. Référence de sa catégorie du système LMS, la centralisation en temps réel est complétée par un éventail d’outils. Ils permettent au trésorier de l’entreprise d’assurer la gestion 100 % automatisée des liquidités sur de multiples comptes, entités, devises, régions et établissements bancaires. Pour étayer la relation symbiotique entre le trésorier d’entreprise et la banque, la suite Liquidity Management de gestion des liquidités d’iGTB est dotée de fonctions pour améliorer les métriques du bilan de la banque et, simultanément, fournir la valeur qui convient aux liquidités et dépôts de l’entreprise

En adéquation avec sa stratégie centrée client et d’accroissement de l’efficience opérationnelle, la Société Générale est particulièrement favorable à cette coopération avec iGTB, grand habitué de l’accompagnement des grandes banques mondiales. Société Générale est convaincue qu’ils sauront, ensemble, faire bénéficier ses clients entreprises des meilleures solutions disponible.

Manish Mais qu’en dit Manish Maakan, PDG d’iGTB « Ce contrat montre une fois de plus à quel point iGTB, en partenariat avec des banques de référence comme la Société Générale, est le leader du marché dans le domaine de la gestion des liquidités. En choisissant iGTB pour accompagner la Banque dans son parcours de transformation digitale et ses plans de croissance, Société Générale montre sa volonté d’améliorer le niveau de satisfaction de ses clients tout en préparant l’avenir. Avec ce nouveau partenariat de gestion des liquidités, quatre des six plus grandes banques d’Europe sont désormais clients d’iGTB. Il renforce notre position de partenaire de choix des plus grandes institutions financières mondiales et confirme notre statut de leader mondial de la gestion des liquidités et des transactions bancaires. »

La solution de gestion des liquidités d’iGTB est une plateforme de gestion des liquidités 100 % disponible dans le cloud. Elle se compose notamment de fonctionnalités de base prêtes à l’emploi telles que le balayage de trésorerie, la centralisation notionnelle, les prêts interentreprises, les balayages d’investissement, le traitement de valeur liquidative de fonds, le suivi des liquidités en temps réel et les toutes dernières trouvailles en matière d’expérience utilisateur client. LMS est le leader du secteur pour les banques qui proposent des produits de liquidité aux clients entreprises. Balayant chaque année plus de 4 trillions USD en espèces, attribuant des intérêts sur 35 trillions USD de soldes de cash pooling notionnel et autorisé par plus de 40 institutions financières à l’échelle mondiale, LMS s’acquitte d’une expérience client supérieure, sophistiquée, multi-comptes, multi-entités, multi-devises, multi-régions, multi-comptes de dépôt à vue et multi-banques.

iGTB Optimise Liquidity Management for Societe Generale

iGTB Optimise Liquidity Management for Societe Generale

iGTB’s world-leading, contextual Liquidity Management Solution will offer Societe Generale and its corporate clients a way to optimise liquidity, while unleashing trapped cash, reducing risks and mitigating the effects of negative interest rates.

London, 03 May, 2021: Intellect Global Transaction Banking (iGTB), the transaction banking specialist from Intellect Design Arena Limited, ranked #1 in the world for Transaction Banking by IBS Intelligence, today announced it will support Societe Generale, a major player in the economy for over 150 years, supporting 29 million clients every day with 138,000 staff in 62 countries, in implementing the world’s #1 Liquidity Management solution.

While 2020 was a year of great resilience, it has highlighted the urgent need for banks to deliver to their corporate clients significantly increased sophistication in corporate Treasury and Liquidity Management through automation and digitalisation. New capabilities are required to meet the combined challenges presented by negative interes rates, restrictions on cross-currency and cross-border cash pooling, increasing expectations for self-service and delivering cross-functional efficiencies to corporate treasurers. At the same time, financial institutions have been carefully shoring up balance sheets and driving operational efficiencies to ensure appropriate levels of strength to contend with an uncertain economic environment.

In this context, Societe Generale has chosen Intellect iGTB for its world-leading Liquidity Management System (LMS).

iGTB’s LMS, and its associated Liquidity Management suite of products, is designed with the premise that every Euro of corporate liquidity will – at some stage – be a Euro of bank liability. LMS’s best-in- class real-time cash pooling is augmented with an array of tools for the corporate treasurer to deliver fully automated liquidity management across multiple accounts, multiple entities, multiple currencies, multiple geographies and multiple banks. To support the symbiotic relationship between the corporate treasurer and the bank, iGTB’s Liquidity Management suite offers processors to improve the bank’s balance sheet metrics and, simultaneously, deliver appropriate value to corporate liquidity and deposits.

In line with its strategy to focus on client centricity and increase operational efficiency, Societe Generale is particularly enthusiastic to work with iGTB, who has a strong track-record in working with large global banks. Societe Generale is confident that together they can bring best-in-class solutions to its corporate clients.

Manish Commenting on this announcement, Manish Maakan, CEO, iGTB said, “This win further demonstrates how iGTB, in partnership with leading banks like Societe Generale, is the market leader for Liquidity Management. The decision of Societe Generale to choose iGTB to support the Bank with its digital transformation journey and growth plans is a reflection of Societe Generale’s commitment to increase customer satisfaction while preparing for the future. This new Liquidity Management partnership means that four of the six largest banks in Europe are clients of iGTB, reinforcing our position as the partner of choice for the world’s largest financial institutions and underpinning our world-leading position in Liquidity Management and Transaction Banking.”

iGTB’s Liquidity Management Solution is a 100% cloud native liquidity management platform that includes out-of-the-box core capabilities such as cash sweeping, notional pooling, inter-company lending, investment sweeps, fund NAV (Net Asset Value) processing, real-time cash control and the latest in client user experience.
