File integration

Flexible, secure connectivity for straight-through processing

When processing large volumes of payments and collections, businesses can benefit from an integrated connection to their primary banking partner - one that helps provide fast, secure and error-free data transmission combined with seamless integration with accounting systems. That's exactly what HSBC delivers.

HSBC Connect

HSBC Connect, our host-to-host file transfer solution, enables you to transmit a single file containing multiple transaction types over the internet or computer-to-computer.

Whether payments and collections are centralized at a single site or multiple shared service centers, all transaction data can be sent in one file format. HSBC Connect delivers:

  • A variety of communications protocols across multiple networks
  • Support for a wide range of standard file structures with advanced file-mapping ensuring that the system recognizes file formats, and also maps, sorts, validates, and routes your data properly
