EDI in Banking and Finance
EDI in banking and finance ensures that for example, communication in the transfer of accounting data and statistics is secure.
The banking industry is a dynamic and rapidly developing business sector. Major players on the market include commercial banks, building-savings banks and other financial institutions as well as central banks. The banking industry is also closely intertwined with other industries. Each and every day, banking institutions make sure that financial transactions (e.g. payments, credits, debit notes, etc.) of a variety of businesses run smoothly and securely on a national and international level.
Automation of financial data
In banking, strict compliance with all regulatory requirements and legislative stipulations, including regulations by central banks, is key. When exchanging financial data between all involved parties, security and reliability are essential when it comes to guaranteeing timely payments, efficient cash management and other large-scale financial transactions.
