BicDetective is a tailored tool developed by MirWare to investigate and analyze SWIFT® FIN messages (MTs) directly on your PC.

This user-friendly application has been created to meet the needs of Correspondent Bankers, Marketing & Sales Managers, Back Office & Settlement Departments, and it is capable of providing unambiguous statistics over a bank payments operations (in- and outbound), working out all MTs sent and received by the bank SWIFT® BIC4 exchanged with all SWIFT® correspondents.

Since all tasks are performed directly on your local PC, security and privacy are guaranteed as no sensitive information is sent out of your bank.

BicDetective can be installed either on individual workstations as well as servers, and it requires minimal IT intervention: in fact, a TXT copy of FIN traffic is the only contribution required to a bank’s ICT department.
