Payments reference data provider CB.Net Ltd. has launched a new service, The European Banking Directory, in partnership with the European Payments Council (EPC). The new directory will include listings of all licensed banks in the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA).

The directory will also provide users trade, retail and brand names, registered address and the SEPA status of banks. It will be accessible at CB.Net will power the directory and it will cover the 31 countries in SEPA. The data included in the directory is checked and verified by CB.Net before it is updated each week.

CB.Net will integrate the European Banking Directory into its flagship product, BankSearchPlus, to provide a comprehensive payments reference in just one source.

By integrating the new directory into its trademark offering, CB.Net is certainly raising its profile in this space and positioning the company as a one-stop-shop for such data. This should be a huge selling point for both current and prospective customers. In addition, the launch will help CB.Net make an even larger impression on the banking industry as a whole. By introducing a product around SEPA, CB.Net is doing its share to bring more attention to this area in the marketplace.
