CEN Workshop on eXtensions for Financial Services (WS/XFS) 

The XFS Workshop maintains multi-vendor device access specifications with a technical commitment to the Win 32 API. The XFS Workshop has extended the franchise of multi-vendor software by encouraging the participation of both self service users and vendors to take part in the deliberations of the creation of an industry standard. This has been very successful with a current membership level of more than 20 companies.

The fundamental aims of the XFS Workshop are to promote a clear and unambiguous specification for both service providers and application developers. This has been achieved to date by sub groups working electronically and quarterly meetings.

Comments and questions can be sent to xfs-helpdesk.
