IBIS Management Associates Inc. recently announced that it has allowed its customers to connect to RippleNet, a payment technology and a consultancy company. Users can access SWIFT, the international payment network, via the SWISSRoute service established by IBIS.
A cloud-based infrastructure facilitates the development of the 'adapters' linking specific payment networks to the conventional financial system. Consumers of the service, therefore, provide connections through a common portal to many financial institutions. This program simplifies and automates market flows, thereby improving the interbank connection. The software uses national structured ISO and proprietary (MT) communications. IBIS claims consumers have additional advantages:
With SWISSRoute you don’t need to acquire or license any of the proprietary SWIFT hardware and software required to connect to their network. Instead, you can leverage our secure cloud-based services. Our infrastructure is compliant with SWIFT’s security and business continuity standards and we manage all of the upgrades so that you can take advantage of all of the latest SWIFT capabilities. From IBIS report
IBIS claims that businesses operating in a multibank world that requires a digital payment system are a perfect client for the use of the new converter with RippleNet.
