Volkswagen Bank migrates to CoCoNet's MULTIVERSA product suite
The finance portal MULTIVERSA IFP enables Volkswagen Bank to perform payment transactions with third party banks, while the banking server MULTIVERSA IBS serves as the payment hub of Volkswagen Bank, receiving payment data from international corporate customers.
With MULTIVERSA, the financing arm of Europe's largest auto manufacturer now has a solid foundation to stay at the forefront of harmonisation trends in payment transactions with SEPA formats and the EBICS connectivity standard.
While the formats and standards used in the European payments system have differed from country to country, the tendency to unify these means to increasingly use SEPA formats within the Euro zone, and the EBICS standard for connecting with banks in Germany and France. Volkswagen Bank also deploys EBICS for specific order types when communicating with the German central bank.
For customers in France and Germany, Volkswagen Bank now offers SEPA formats as a standard crosscountry format in addition to the payment formats CFONB, DTAUS and DTAZV (and MT940 and CFONB120 for account information).
Thanks to the exceptional userfriendliness of the redesigned graphical user interfaces (GUI), the finance portal MULTIVERSA IFP and the banking server MULTIVERSA IBS are the ideal platforms for the corporate banking business of Volkswagen Bank. With CoCoNet's innovative MULTIVERSA product family, Volkswagen Bank is well equipped for current and future customer requirements.
