SWIFT gpi - Maximising its value through APIs
The Tracker – as a core feature of gpi – is a SWIFT hosted database offering gpi banks a real-time view on the progress and status of all their cross-border gpi payments while these are transacting across the correspondent banking chain. While the majority of gpi-enabled banks rely today on SWIFT messages to consult and update their payments’ statuses on the Tracker, we see more and more banks using APIs to access the Tracker. APIs offer faster and flexible ways to integrate tracking views and details in bank back-office systems, customer channels and solutions for direct integration in end-customer systems. In this session, a series of gpi-active banks will elaborate on their API strategy, drivers, implementation and future plans with respect to gpi APIs.
