In times of increasing digitization and networking of companies, strong partnerships are highly relevant. At the same time, EFiS is proud of its network of bundled competences, which enables them to grow together.

In cooperation with the Deutsche Bundesbank as the central authority for monitoring and further developing the uniform European payment traffic, EFiS can look back on a long-standing successful partnership. As already in the past and as an early adopter involved in procedures such as ELS, EAF, RTGS +, TARGET, HBV, TARGET2 and ISE, EFiS will continue to support all services provided by the central bank.

The Europe-wide forum for payments participants has set itself the task of advancing European payment initiatives such as SEPA migration. As an associate member, EFiS is always in contact with the pan-European, neutral banking association on current payments topics. Together, important steps are being taken to shape European payment transactions.

The consulting and research institute “ibi research” conducts application-oriented research and consulting focusing on innovations in financial services and retail. Through regular specialist contributions and joint events, ibi and EFiS work together to discuss current topics in the market and inform market participants.

IBM is a key partner. The International Business Machines Corporation, as a forward-looking provider of electronic payments solutions, enables us to host high-performance products on fail-safe IBM z mainframes. Thus, EFiS can generate a decisive competitive advantage and operates due to the innovative products of IBM on the pulse of the time.

Furthermore, targens GmbH is one of our partners. The integration of the SMARAGD module into our services enables us to provide customers with protection against financial crime and fraud.

In order to generate a high standard of safety and to expand our know-how, further cooperations have been established in recent years with the aim of jointly developing central competencies and efficient solutions for payment transactions.
