bd consulting Lands Contract from PaymentStandards.CH

bd consulting has won a competitive tender for a public relations contract from PaymentStandards.CH.

In the next few years the Swiss payment transfer system will be harmonized throughout. This will involve bringing together very heterogeneous set-ups run by different financial institutions and unifying all the old formats, procedures, and payment slips on the basis of the globally recognized ISO 20022 standard. The harmonization initiative is the biggest financial infrastructure project to be undertaken in Switzerland in the last 30 years, and has great economic relevance.

During the changeover phase, bd consulting will support SIX Interbank Clearing AG/PaymentStandards.CH with an integrated communications platform. It will be addressed at political stakeholders, federal authorities, industry associations, business experts, consumer protection activists, and the media.
