SuperChoice, the leading provider of superannuation clearing house services, rollovers and online contribution processing systems in Australia, needed to build a clearance and payment gateway to comply with the Australian Tax Office’s (ATO) superannuation program, SuperStream. SuperChoice chose Axway (NYSE Euronext: AXW.PA), a leader in governing the flow of data, to develop a state-of-the-art B2B platform capable of addressing all their information interactions and integrations, essential to supporting customers and partners.
The Axway B2Bi Gateway, a core component of the Axway 5 Suite, supports high volume SuperStream message management for straight-through processing of fund rollovers and contributions. Axway B2Bi is Drummond Group certified to enable compliance with the new SuperStream data standards’ regulations, which require funds to exchange information electronically in industry-standard formats (ebMS/AS4).
A clear advantage of Axway B2Bi is that it integrates all the organizations impacted by SuperStream, regardless of the complexity or volume of B2B transactions, including employers; clearing houses; fund administrators; and government agencies. In addition, employers may also use Axway B2Bi as their consolidated gateway to integrate their core business partners for example, suppliers, customers and logistics partners. Axway B2Bi Gateway addresses the growing need to control and optimize the flow of data throughout the enterprise and its ecosystem of external and internal partners. Axway B2Bi is an advanced B2B gateway solution and an integral part of the Axway 5 Suite which ensures information is efficiently integrated between business entities in an intelligent, reliable, and secure manner.
Ian Gibson, CIO for SuperChoice, said,“The Axway B2Bi solution provides out-of-the box support for a wide range of SuperStream relevant communication protocols including ebMS v3/AS4 and for any-to-any transformation of a wide range of document formats. Using the Axway 5 Suite, we can consolidate all our disparate point-to-point connections into one platform, both simplifying and improving operations management while reducing the cost of managing customers.
“With Axway as our SuperStream partner, we can focus on our core mission to completely automate superannuation and pension transactions, confident in the knowledge that Axway is focused on the information exchange platform and standards compliance as they evolve,” added Gibson.
Eric Chevrier, EVP, Sales & Operations, Growth Markets, Axway, said,“We are delighted to be assisting SuperChoice to deliver superannuation services in compliance with the rollover and high volume contribution phases of the new SuperStream regulations. Axway is proud to deliver and enable the secure, reliable and high-availability 24/7, always-on infrastructure essential for the funds and clearing houses to deliver and maintain trust in the Australian superannuation system.”
Axway B2Bi supports a wide variety of B2B messaging protocols and built-in B2B MFT, including EDIINT (AS1, AS2, AS3 and AS4), OFTP (V1 and V2), ebXML ebMS (V2 and V3), RosettaNet RNIF (V1 and V2), cXML (V4), Web Services, HTTP/S, FTP/S, S/FTP, X.400 (X.420 and X.435), and more. EDIINT and ebXML are annually certified by the Drummond Group.
On February 5, Axway and SuperChoice will present a webinar outlining this use case.
