  • Harmonised connection to payment transactions

    Would you like to offer your corporate customers a standard and highly secure connection for payment transactions? Most banks offer EBICS as standard for payment transactions. Use EBICS aaS for your corporate customers and reduce their vulnerability, as well as your own.

  • Customer-centred communication

    As an option, you can offer the use of e-documents and save your corporate customers from having to log in to access statements or PDF confirmations. Login, downloading and saving are then no longer necessary, improving the efficiency of corporate customer accounting.

  • Customer benefits

    By connecting the secure, simple and reliable eVV option to the EBICS interface, you enable the daily transfer of position, price and transaction data in CSV/XML formats. All assets are visible in the portfolio.
