Frankfurt, Germany and London, UK, August 8, 2019 - Finastra announced today that Fusion PAYplus Financial Transaction System (FTS), its payment processing and messaging application for the European market, has achieved the SWIFT Certified Application label for a seventh consecutive year. The label demonstrates the solution’s strong capabilities to align to complex SWIFT Standards. Finastra is currently one of only five providers to have received this label globally.

Kurt Ryelandt, Customer Services Director at SWIFT said, “The SWIFT Certified program provides application providers with the opportunity to test their applications for compatibility and interoperability with SWIFT’s messaging and connectivity requirements. Earning this label is evidence that Fusion PAYplus FTS adheres to the specified criteria for SWIFT FIN (MT) messages, SWIFT connectivity, and SWIFT interoperability.
