Weil IBAN-Namensprüfungen zur Pflicht werden

Hamburg/Utrecht, 26. September 2023: SurePay, Initiator und marktführender Anbieter einer IBAN-Namensprüfung, und alseda Consulting, eine führende IT-Beratung, geben heute die Einführung eines SAP Add-Ons für den IBAN-Name Check bekannt. Die neue Lösung eröffnet SAP-Nutzern in allen Euro-Ländern erstmals einen einfachen, direkt integrierten Zugang zu einer IBAN-Namensprüfung. Die Integration macht viele Prozesse im Zusammenhang mit Zahlungsdaten effizienter, sicherer und hilft Zahlungsbetrug zu vermeiden. Die Lösung für SEPA-Zahlungen entspricht dabei allen Anforderungen der EU-Kommission in Bezug auf die bald obligatorische Integration solch einer Prüfung für Instant Payments und Banküberweisungen.

Aufgrund einer neuen Gesetzesverordnung der EU-Kommission für SEPA Instant Payments, die voraussichtlich noch 2023 verabschiedet wird, wird eine bankseitige Überprüfung zwischen der IBAN und dem Namen des Kontoinhabenden zeitnah zur Pflicht bei Instant Payments. Im Rahmen eines weiteren Vorschlags der EU-Kommission im Zusammenhang mit PSD3 und PSR, werden IBAN-Namensprüfungen in absehbarer Zeit wahrscheinlich auch für alle regulären Banküberweisungen obligatorisch.

Vor diesem Hintergrund haben sich SurePay, der Initiator und marktführende Anbieter für den IBAN-Name Check, und das IT-Beratungsunternehmen alseda Consulting zusammengetan und die Softwarelösung alseda INV entwickelt: Die erste direkt in die SAP-Landschaft integrierte Lösung am Markt für den Abgleich zwischen der IBAN und dem Namen des Zahlungsempfängers. Die gemeinsame Lösung richtet sich an Unternehmen aller Branchen und speziell an Finanzdienstleister wie Banken und Versicherer.

Spezifikationen von alseda INV (IBAN-Name Validation)

alseda INV is based on the standard for SAP S/4HANA® applications and uses intelligent functions to control the use of SurePay’s IBAN name check within the SAP landscape. This allows users to verify their master data during data entry or during the payment process and thus significantly increase the quality of their master data, optimize onboarding processes and prevent incorrect payments. Individually configurable settings can also be made to set specific parameters for the transfer of account data into master data. In addition, regular validation of existing bank details in the SAP system, as well as event-controlled validation, is possible, for example when creating new bank details.

alseda INV can be integrated quickly and without modification into SAP standard applications, on-premise or as an SAP cloud application. A number of SAP applications are directly supported, including SAP Finance and Accounting, SAP Customer Relationship Management, SAP Human Capital Management, SAP Payment Engine and SAP Business Partner.
