SoftSolutions has been at the forefront of this transition, working in close collaboration with the Bank of Italy since 2023. Our efforts ensure that clients utilizing our award-winning XTAuctions software are fully prepared for the upcoming changes without incurring additional costs, particularly for those on our Software as a Service (SAAS) platform.
