Attijariwafa bank: 1st Moroccan bank to adopt the SWIFT GPI standard

Attijariwafa bank is the first Moroccan bank 100% compliant with the international SWIFT GPI (Global Payment Innovation) standard since January 13, 2020. In February 2017, SWIFT made the SWIFT GPI standard operational and invited the banks members of its network to update their tools and gradually comply with this new standard. This is why Attijariwafa bank has included this project in its strategic plan, in order to adopt this standard and thus deliver constant improvements in the customer experience of international payments.

The implementation of this standard will make it possible to offer all customers and international banking partners an experience in line with international best practices combining digitalization, transparency, responsiveness and security. The use of this new standard will allow Attijariwafa bank customers, those in the business market in particular, to immediately benefit from numerous improvements, namely, optimized cash management, control of the supply chain, simpler reconciliation process, transparency on bank charges as well as a reduction in the time for handling complaints and investigations. Attijariwafa bank thus confirms its leadership in supporting international economic operators and its proximity to its customers, particularly in the management of their international payments.
