Axway speeds up transaction processes at JCB

10 March 2005, Uxbridge, Middlesex: JCB, a leading international payment brand based in Asia, has implemented Axway File Broker to speed up the collection and processing of cardholder transaction information across Europe.

Axway File Broker (XFB) is a file transfer and exchange management solution that supports multiple protocols and multiple data exchange standards. JCB chose the system to improve its electronic data gathering with a large number of partner issuers/acquirers across Europe with which JCB needs to exchange information.

JCB already has an in-house developed proprietary file transfer solution and has chosen to add XFB, being based on accepted open standard protocols to offer more choice to its partners issuers/acquirers in Europe.

Shohei Nishino, Operations & Systems Manager at JCB International (Europe) Limited. based in London, said: "Axway File Broker was a natural choice for us, having a proven history of success and efficiency across the financial services industry in Europe. It also answered our specific requirements for a solution that could improve the process of gathering transaction information. "He added, "XFB offers some key features for file transfer that help ensure the secure, high quality data processing system that is critical in JCB's business. Particularly its non-intrusive nature means that it does not need to interfere with our partners' systems."

Franck Keloglanian, at Axway, commented: "JCB's implementation of XFB demonstrates the ease with which our file transfer solution can streamline business processes and reduce pressures on time and costs associated with data exchange."

"XFB is unique in that it is based on Managed File Transfer (MFT) technology, rather than traditional File Transfer Protocol (FTP). Unlike FTP, which is limited to IP-based networks and cannot guarantee delivery of data, MFT provides Internet-enabled, asynchronous, secured and guaranteed delivery of data to multiple destinations. This security and reliability is critical for organisations such as JCB, which rely on timely and accurate data exchange."
