SunGard Business Integration, an operating group of SunGard, today announced that FirstRand Bank has gone live on SWIFTNet using SunGard’s MINT solution.
FirstRand Bank hoped to achieve a smooth cutover and go-live for SWIFTNet FIN in 2004. The go-live was achieved by implementing SunGard’s proven SWIFTNet FIN solution based on its MINT Knowledge Broker platform, providing the interface between the bank’s mainframe-based payment applications and SWIFT’s new FIN service. MINT will achieve a consolidated infrastructure capable of utilising SWIFTNet’s diverse range of network services.
The SWIFTNet project with FirstRand Bank was implemented in conjunction with SunGard Business Integration’s regional distributor, Ensemble Technology (Pty) Limited.
