Software partners

Our software partners offer solutions for a wide range of requirements and application areas. Every offer includes a direct interface to UBS KeyDirect or UBS KeyGate. Here’s an overview of the main solutions:

These solutions act as an interface between existing ERP or financial accounting systems and UBS, transmitting payment orders (individually or in files) to UBS and reports (BESR acknowledgments, credit or debit advices, account statements) in the opposite direction. They can also be used to enter payment orders.

These include systems that display all operational processes and planning, or specifically the financial accounts, as well as systems for managing liquidity or for monitoring financial liabilities and using financial resources efficiently.

UBS uses e-documents to send electronic versions of documents that are needed when doing business with us. These documents bear digital signatures and can be archived using the archive solutions listed, in line with the VAT authorities' regulations (the Federal Department of Finance's ordinance of 30 January 2002 on electronic data and information EIDI-V).
