Gaby Sulbaran, Global Head of Platform Partners at SWIFT added: “This partnership is an important milestone in easing adoption, extending reach, and enabling Bottomline customers to benefit from the range of innovative API-based services available on SWIFT. We’re delighted that the pilot has gone smoothly and we are now ready to scale globally for the wider SWIFT user community.”
