In light of SWIFT's SR2020 mandates, the Global Payment Solution (GPI) was introduced to ensure that international payments meet the industry's needs for speed, end-to-end traceability and transparency. 

Byblos Bank, Lebanon’s third largest bank, has acquired Turnkey Systems GPI solution in partnership with MDSL, an ITG company, where a successful implementation was achieved despite the market hurdles.


All parties have put significant efforts to ensure a smooth implementation and achieve successful project completion. This was a remarkable achievement as all requested test scenarios and validations with SWIFT were seamlessly approved, and throughout the challenging integration between nuBank and T24 core system.


Following this success, Byblos Bank has acquired the same solution for its branches in Iraq and Cyprus, as well as for Byblos Bank Africa in Sudan.


Turnkey's nuBank GPI is a comprehensive, global and dynamic Web Based solution that aims at improving cross border payments, end-to-end tracking, as well as bank charges transparency. The solution caters for all SWIFT requirements in a user-friendly module with core integration and full automation, whereby minimal to no user intervention is required. It is also able to fully integrate with REST based API for Omni Channel. In addition, the solution contains an advanced BI dashboard that is specifically designed for analytics and auditing purposes. Alerts, notifications and various reports are also generated. 
The implementation of the software is part of Byblos Bank’s drive to be SWIFT recognized and listed in their global lists as a trusted bank that is fully compliant with SWIFT's regulatory requirements and other compliance obligations.

MDSL and Turnkey Systems (a certified and registered SWIFT partner) thrive to continuous improvement where we are currently developing an enhanced version to include GPI for corporate use. Leading banks from across the MENA are in the process of implementing the company's solution.
