With our EBICS Electronic Banking Internet Commu­ni­ca­tion Standard as a Service for Switzerland, you receive our all-in-one solution for secure, high-performance data exchange and online banking between you and your corporate customers. 

The multibanking communication standard reduces interface complexity and brings advantages in account management and security.

Leading industry standard

With Swisscom’s EBICS service, financial institutions’ corporate customers are securely and reliably connected to the European standard for connecting corporate customers to the financial networks. We provide you with an attractive package that offers maximum security and reliability at manageable costs, and always meets the require­ments of the market and regulatory bodies. Add-on options are also available to individualise the customer experience.

Clear cost advantages

The all-in-one EBICS solution can be combined with any core banking system and is compatible with previous formats such as DTA or MT940. The modular, extensible full-service solution supports the ISO 20022 payment transaction standard. Thanks to a shared service, you can share the costs for infrastructure, licences, operation and maintenance with the participating financial institutions.

Use the latest EBICS 3.0 specification, digitise business processes between the bank and corporate customers and benefit from functions such as distributed electronic signature (EBICS VEU), payment transactions (ZV), electronic tax assessment decision (eVV connection) or e-documents as required.

Connect the electronic tax assessment decision with the aim of “setting up an electronic interface for the daily transfer of position, transaction and price data”.

Lengthy, error-prone night processing is eliminated by automation or the use of EBICS aaS.
