The whole lifecycle of any transaction can be handled by workflows, enhanced by advanced analytic options. Our solution covers every possible opportunity to improve and optimise trade finance processes.

Swift gets

The ApPello Trade Finance system complies with all SWIFT message formats for letters of credit, guarantees, and documentary collections. Incoming SWIFT messages are automatically processed from the moment they arrive. As a transaction is created, details of the message appear on the bank user’s dashboard as part of the workflow. The system automatically generates outgoing SWIFT messages as well.

Comprehensive handling
of all transaction types

The all-round support of all trade finance instruments means that, whether export or import, all possible scenarios are easily manageable. The functions of the system also extend to specialities such as back-to-back, standby, transferable or revolving letters of credit, and bills of exchange. Our system can process all payment types and all possible bank roles in the transaction.

Report & document
management assistence

Within the system, there is an advanced, template-based Advice and Report generation tool that can be easily customised. The templates, in terms of advice, report and document generation, are defined in the most widespread formats: The advice templates are in MS Word. The reports can be generated by the same template-based tool or back office users can export what they see on their own user interface in XLS or PDF. The system can store and retrieve all generated documents

fee structure

The solution is delivered with a highly configurable fee module. All types of fees can be set up and grouped into fee packages. This means it is possible to tailor conditions for a specific client or group of clients. Fees can depend on workflow steps and type of products; fee structures can be differentiated based on the transaction’s input values.
