Key Benefits

Existing Solutions for Trade Finance:

üTrade Finance transactions as part of Core Banking Solutions: Banks use their existing Core Banking software to meet their trade needs, which cannot withstand the data intensive requirements of a typical Trade Finance transaction.This results in non-capture of critical additional data elements and information which affects the statutory and reporting requirements of the bank.

üIn-house Applications: Some Banks have developed and use their own in—house solutions to meet their requirements. These do not meet their comprehensive requirements.In most of these cases, document management and reporting requirements are not met.

üExclusive third-party solutions: Some Banks have sourced exclusive Trade Finance solutions. While these Solutions address the above-mentioned two aspects, the rigidity of must such products to meet the exclusive bank specif and region specific requirements, as also the reluctance of the Solution owner to customize the product leaves the banks wanting in their quest to achieve their desired output and quality.

üLack of Customer-centric features: More than 75-80% of the Solutions on Trade Finance do not offer customer front-end to their clients.Those which have customer front-end also do not have a comprehensive solution for all the needs of the customer.

FINTRA’s Trade Finance solution is a panacea for all these limitations. It takes care of exhaustive capture of data elements, statutory requirements, customer front-end, storage of documents and transmission of document images from customer to Bank and vice-versa.It is flexible enough to enable addition of bank’s new requirements by way of bank-specific customizations as also mask bank-specific product features from rest of the Industry.

Areas where FINTRA addresses the challenges of the current day environment in TRADE FINANCE:

Area of activity

Challenges faced by bank

Fintra’s solutions

Receiving customer requirements

The customer requirements are manually received by way of physical documents

Customer can initiate transaction online and submit data to bank on the GO by uploading scanned images.Physical documents can follow, but Bank need not hold processing till they are received.

Data input

After receiving documents, lot of data input is required

The data submitted by customer is available for vetting and processing.

Bank guidelines

Manual compliance of bank guidelines for exception processing

Exception processing can be flagged and appropriate alerts generated


Manually handled to meet requirements of each authority

Fintra enables pre-configured reports which can be transferred to the Statutory authority through identified software

Repetitive transactions

Consumes lot of time

Fintra enables repetition of similar transactions to save for the users thus avoiding monotony.

Resource management

Bank needs to position at least one Trade Finance resource per active branch

FINTRA software can enable customers as well as branches to input basic data which does not call for expertise and rest of the processing can be done at the dedicated Trade Finance cell of the bank.

Trade Finance know-how

All the resources need to be abreast with knowledge required

Subject know-how can be restricted to limited few who actually process the transactions.


Lack of automation and need for repetitive activities

Enables automation by which both the bank and customers save on input and ensures greater communication and transparency


Need to send specific emails/sms

Emails/sms/Advices can be linked to transaction processing and triggered automatically


Cannot be tracked scientifically

TAT for specific transactions can be defined and missed TATs/SLAs can be tracked. Besides email/sms alerts can be sent


Authorization matrix cannot be defined and the standard maker-checker process need to be followed

Enables transaction-specific configuration of Authorization Matrix which gives greater degree of security to the bank and client.


SWIFT transactions need to be individually triggered which may lead to frauds and delays

SWIFT messages are auto-triggered from the Application.Incoming messages can also be processed by transfer of data from SWIFT to Trade Finance.
