Data Sheet: Axway Interplay

Simple, secure and auditable exception/rejection handling and data entry

When the flow of data required to complete essential business interactions is disrupted due to incorrect or missing information, the impacts can range from lost productivity to failure to comply with service level agreements, financial penalties, and damaged relationships and brands. Conversely, maintaining accurate and complete information in business-critical systems is a major advantage that increases a company’s ability to respond, innovate, compete and grow.

Axway Interplay is a powerful, easy-to-use forms-based solution that enables secure, controlled and auditable event recycling and data entry to ensure the smooth, uninterrupted flow of data. When a system (such as a Treasury Management, ERP or CRM system) encounters a problem with a file, Axway Interplay pinpoints the error and enables authorized users to manually resubmit new information into the system to quickly restore the seamless flow of business data.

Role-based permissions and detailed, easy-to-query audit trails provide the security and traceability required to ensure compliance with complex local, regional and global regulatory requirements including IFRS, Basel II & III and the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act.
