Announcement - Citibank developes standardised interfaces to integrate banking and accounting systems.
Working in Partnership with SAP AG and TSI International Software, Citibank has developed new services to integrate with the SAP/R3 accounting system. ‘We are very glad about the successful certification of the interface between Citibanking and R/3,’ said Dr. Martin Hofmann, manager of SAP’s Complementary Software Program Europe. ‘The certification will not only serve our mutual customers through the provision of a stable interface. It is also a further step towards a close and valuable partnership with Citibank, one of the largest banks in the world.’ Citibank also announced that it has selected TSI International Software’s Mercator® for R/3 as the secured accounts payable interface between SAP R/3 and Citibanking. Citibank will use TSI’s Mercator mapping software to translate information from a standard SAP format (IDoc format) into a format that can be imported into Citibanking. In addition, the Mercator approach will provide users with the capability of making third party payments.
