A HISTORY OF INNOVATION

The RNI and the payments systems

Since its foundation, the company has been a leading player in the evolution of payments systems through:

  • the development of the RNI (Rete Nazionale Interbancaria – National Interbank Network), which connects all the financial institutions
  • the automation of the interbank payments system
  • the creation of the Bancomat Circuit
The automation of financial markets

Technological innovation makes its entrance on financial marketplaces: SIA - also through its merger with CEDborsa - plays a leading role in the automation of markets managed by Borsa Italiana and in the start-up of the Italian wholesale markets: e-MID and MTS.

In 1992, SSB is founded from the spin-off of SIA’s Applications division. The new company focuses on creating a merchant- and acquirer-side offering, launching the first payment cards projects: Bancomat/Pagobancomat, FASTpay, MINIpay, e-Wallet, Microcircuito.
