InvestTech Systems Consulting Announces Multiple Implementation Relationships with Leading Investment Accounting Vendors
16 December 2008
InvestTech Systems Consulting, Inc., the leading IT and operations consultancy for institutional investors, announced multiple strategic consultant relationships with leading providers of software and services for the global investment management industry.
InvestTech’s expertise has been extended through relationships with firms including Advent, Simcorp, Princeton Financial Systems, Thomson/Reuters and Eagle Investment Systems. These associations have solidified through years of partnering together on projects. InvestTech has built strong relationships with and gained valuable knowledge from project managers, consultants and executives at these leading investment accounting software companies. InvestTech’s understanding of the investment process, integration and implementation capabilities and product knowledge complements the subject matter expertise from vendors, which has proven to be integral to completing a successful implementation for many buy-side firms.
A major factor contributing to these solid working relationships is that InvestTech consultants have access to vendor resources - including product developers, support teams, current software versions, training and certification - thereby allowing them to play a key role in servicing clients. InvestTech has a number of Senior Consultants who specialize in specific vendor applications and who work closely with each of the vendor firms to review upcoming functional capabilities and understand implementation and integration requirements.
One of several benefits mentioned by implementation partners is the overall capability of InvestTech consultants to understand the best approaches for integrating investment accounting systems with operational processes and other investment systems, such as order management systems, performance measurement applications, data warehouses, market data vendors and STP utilities.
