The service is for companies and authorities that make payments via account / bankgiro numbers to individuals and companies. The company that uses Account request submits the questions before 7 am and receives a reply the same day after 2 pm.

Why Account request?

This results in reduced lead times, error-handling and resource efficiency improvements for companies and authorities with large volumes of payments.

Reduced lead times from control of the account to the payment, which leads to risk minimization with payments to correct accounts and better liquidity planning through fewer number of money orders in circulation.
