The new solution will support Swift, Target2 and SEPA credit transfers at Hellenic Bank.  The project is part of the bank's "overarching digitalization strategy" Fiserv says.  Phivos Leontiou, head group operations, Hellenic Bank, says the bank needed “a proven payments platform” that could address its current needs, such as the optimisation of payments processes and resources, as well as future payments initiatives. Fiserv/Dovetail is “the right choice” for Hellenic Bank, Leontiou comments, given its “best-in-class  solutions”, delivery track record and a “long-term partnership approach”.
