SWIFT has announced that it is extending its gpi Tracker to cover all payment instructions sent across the network. This will enable gpi banks to track all their SWIFT payment instructions at all times, and give them full visibility over all their payment activity.
The Tracker, available since May 2017, enables banks that have signed up to SWIFT gpi to track their gpi payments in real-time. From 18 November this year, a unique end-to-end transaction reference will be included in all payment instructions carried between all 11,000 customers on SWIFT across more than 200 countries and territories. This will give gpi customers full end-to-end tracking of all their gpi payment messages quickly and efficiently, bringing even greater transparency and cost reduction.
