consolidated view of all payment transactions handled by each
country in Asia Pacific,” said Setlef Von-Eliff, chief information
officer BNP Paribas Asia Pacific.

“It also allows us to enjoy seamless
integration with our current applications such as Connexis or
Swiftnet in the future, and be able to offer parsing capabilities
to other third-party banks.”

BNP Parabis initiated the regional hub payment project to
interface with the bank’s channels, a range of internal systems and
the various domestic low value and high value payment systems.
