Why the migration to ISO 20022 is crucial for your business
ISO 20022 has already been adopted in 70 countries to replace domestic or legacy formats
SWIFT mandated that ANY financial institution processing SWIFT messages must be able to receive and process ISO by end of 2022
ISO 20022 will support a predicted 80% of volume and 90% of the value of high value payments by 2025
What is ISO 20022?
MT Messaging is being replaced by IS0 20022 financial messages, which provides rich data with each transaction, enabling everything from enhanced analytics to status tracking, sanction checking and automated invoice reconciliation – all whilst delivering an enhanced experience for end customers.
The global ISO 20022 standard for financial messaging also reduces fragmentation and improves interoperability on key services such as instant payments - domestic and cross-border, Open Banking, API platforms and other overlay services.
How can Bottomline help me choose a tailored solution for my business?
We can leverage our global experience, in particular the 2015 Swiss SIC migration to ISO 20022, to forge a best practice approach. This will involve assessing your institutions unique challenges in order to build a tailored strategy that will help with a speedy and effective migration. On the whole, there is value in your financial institution considering a phased approach or ‘minimal functional requirements’ remit for the ISO 20022 adoption/ migration, that has the agility for you to optimise in the immediate future.
Three phases to successful adoption of ISO 20022
At Bottomline we are facilitating this approach to minimise the impact on our customer’s current processes, whilst maximising the new value-add opportunities and operational efficiencies.
Upgrade interfaces and core overlay services to ISO 20022 native
Upgrade Interfaces and core Overlay Services to be ISO 20022 compliant, whilst simultaneously providing access for our clients to a utility that enables transformation, enrichment and validation of their legacy messaging transposed into ISO 20022. NB. Customer messaging processing remains unchanged.
Implement the upgraded Infrastructure and enable new messaging services without impacting daily operations
Implement the upgraded Infrastructure for our clients and enable the new messaging services for them without impact on their daily operations. This will prepare our clients for the market facing changes they will have to make and ready them for the switch, post a customer impact assessment and further data analysis.
In parallel, Bottomline will work with clients to enhance the data they need to make available and process. This can happen in two different ways: The first is for the client’s own applications to produce full ISO 20022. The second is to maintain current outputs, allowing access to the full data via a complete data store based on the original messaging and integrate secondary data sources to build the complete message.
Final decision to set ISO 20022 ‘live’ in the market
The final decision to set ISO 20022 ‘live’ in the market. With all the internal work completed in the background, the communication out to the market moves from old to new. Now our clients can feel confident to elect a date to switch on the full capabilities of ISO 20022 payments processing having had ample time for testing. The improved processes that have been developed internally can then be set ‘Live’.
Don’t be a laggard as even with the support of industry/ government bodies, as well as a seasoned service provider partner like Bottomline, a simple migration takes 9-12 months to implement, let alone a strategic approach - so you better act now!

How Can ISO 20022 Help Banks to Develop Additional Services?
ISO 20022 provides corporates with greater interoperability, but are banks ready to conquer the value of data and standardize operations, or will competitors such as “big techs” or challenger banks get there first? In this podcast by IBS Intelligence, Ed Adshead-Grant, General Manager and Director of Payments, talks all things ISO 20022.
EastWest Bank successfully migrate to PhilPaSS Plus, enabling the bank to receive and send data rich ISO 20022 messages
EastWest Bank had the challenge of complying with the new ISO 20022 message format whilst managing the impact on their core banking system (T24) and the availability of IT support.
Real-time payments and ISO 20022 with Deutsche Bank
We are at a time where ISO 20022 innovation is becoming ever more critical.
Bottomline and Deutsche Bank's Payments and Infrastructure Lead discuss how the introduction of standardised messaging such as ISO 20022 is having a huge impact on operational efficiency, interoperability and customer transparency and how will this impact the speed of roll-out of new banking services and revenue streams.
How do Financial Institutions in EMEA Migrate to ISO 20022, Hit Deadlines and Create New Business Opportunities?
ISO 20022 is predicted to support 80% of volume and 90% of the value of high-value transactions and SWIFT has mandated that ANY financial institution that processes SWIFT messages must be able to receive and process ISO messages by the end of 2022.
However, many banks and financial institutions have underestimated the complexity of the necessary changes of the migration as the transition isn’t just a simple upgrade of process. Existing infrastructure and legacy systems are not sophisticated enough to deal with the speed of integration and transition required.
