Bottomline has announced the latest API-based payments tracking service for banks worldwide, integrating SWIFT gpi data. The gpi data is captured on behalf of Bottomline clients and is integrated into their payments workflow, which simplifies and unifies the API access points. In launching this service, Bottomline joins SWIFT’s new Platform Partnership Programme in which third-party providers can offer the benefits of API connectivity to SWIFT to their banking customers. The APIs enable a new level of end-to-end transparency and payment status for cross-border payments in real-time. It can help banks and their corporate customers to have full visibility on the status of their cross-border payments throughout the whole transaction lifecycle. Using Bottomline, the APIs are presented through a secure, fast and easy-to-access payment gateway.
