Quick wins with SWIFT: digital matching and data validation at Bilfinger

The mention of “SWIFT” usually makes treasurers think “payments.” But obtaining a company BIC has the potential for so much more. Hear how digital matching has been a success for Bilfinger from day one: recording FX deals, sending and retrieving confirmations and checking unconfirmed details. Martin Engelhardt explains how using the BELLIN SWIFT Service has created an efficient, system-integrated and audit-compliant FX trading process.

In addition to their communication channel, SWIFT offers various other products to support treasurers, including SWIFT Service SwiftRef, which Bilfinger uses to improve the quality of bank master data. In this workshop, Martin Engelhardt talks about the advantages for corporates, while SWIFT presents some of their latest product developments.
