Airbus uses HawkeyeBSB to gain and maintain visibility over its cash management fees


  • Check whether bank invoices (including volumes and unit prices) are correct
  • Increase visibility of the banking services used by its subsidiaries and improve the head office’s understanding of these services
  • Use the data from HawkeyeBSB as the catalyst to harmonize Airbus’ fee schedules
  • Prepare for future RFPs for bank services using insights provided by HawkeyeBSB


Solution: Actionable insight Airbus can rely on

  • Automatic integration of Airbus’ bank files, received via SWIFTNet FileAct, into the HawkeyeBSB tool
  • Automatic matching of bank codes with fee schedules, regardless of the bank account, bank, or country involved
  • Detailed reporting: Automatic and consistent flagging of discrepancies between expected and actual charges, making it easier to recover any overcharges

Results: Total visibility over banking services and cash management fees

  • An accurate view of the overall charges paid to each bank at the group level
  • Visible improvements in billing processes and credits issued from the banks immediately after beginning the implementation of HawkeyeBSB
  • Accurate identification of billing discrepancies, enabling Airbus to recover overcharges
  • Easy comparison of bank charges between banks and countries
