From October 15 it will be possible to connect to STEP2, the EBA Clearing platform that centralises the management of cross-border payments in the euro area, using the EBICS (Electronic Banking Internet Communication Standard) protocol. Financial institutions have the opportunity to use a new network protocol for exchanging SEPA files with EBA.
The availability of multiple network protocols to connect with your own CSM allows you to choose the most useful and advantageous solution in relation to your needs.
With the adoption of EBICS protocol, banks may also offer their corporate customers flexible and effective solutions for the exchange of files.
TAS supports the EBICS protocol through its Network Gateway solution, the suite that centralises and makes more accessible and convenient the connection to the networks, with maximum efficiency and independently of the NSPs. This means a significant reduction of complexity thanks to a unique, open and flexible architecture, designed for all types of payment flows.
