The latest releases of SunGard’s AvantGard Integrity and AvantGard Quantum treasury solutions provide enhanced usability and functionality to help customers gain increased visibility to cash and risk across the enterprise. SunGard’s AvantGard Treasury suite offers a broad spectrum of solutions from basic cash management to sophisticated risk analysis.
The new release of AvantGard Integrity is available in two editions: the Xpress Edition (XE) addresses basic treasury requirements while the Corporate Edition (CE) includes more sophisticated cash and treasury management functionality. The new Integrity releases offer treasurers interactive dashboards and a new, highly configurable reporting tool to help enable easy extraction of data into user defined views including cash positions, balances, foreign exchange positions, rates, intercompany positions, and more. The new interface also helps the treasurer on the go by delivering easy to use interfaces for popular mobile devices such as Apple iPhone, iPad and Android.
For more complex corporate treasuries, the new version of AvantGard Quantum offers sophisticated risk analysis capabilities and is available as the Enterprise Edition (EE). Corporate treasurers will be able to create personal workspaces that help them establish specific analytics and frequently used models for multi-national scenarios and global financial risk analysis. Configurable dashboards and upgraded reporting functionality are among the many new features included to enhance the user experience.
"In recent years, many corporations have focused on centralizing and standardizing their finance systems and operations, often as part of an ERP initiative," according to Nigel Rayner, research vice president at Gartner. "These organizations are now turning the same lens on their treasury operations, looking for ways to improve the effectiveness of those operations through the centralization and standardization of treasury systems and processes. Corporate treasury applications are the technology foundation that can support centralized treasury operations."
Recent awards demonstrate the continued leadership of AvantGard Treasury. Global Finance magazine named SunGard the “Best Treasury Workstation Provider” for AvantGard in its 2012 rankings of Treasury and Cash Management Banks and Providers; the eighth consecutive year that SunGard AvantGard has earned this distinction. In addition, Financial-i magazine recently named SunGard’s AvantGard the 2011 “Leader in Innovation” in the Treasury Management Software category due to the solution’s eBAM capabilities, connectivity, widespread adoption, and private cloud deployment option.
AvantGard Integrity and AvantGard Quantum both offer the benefit of managed bank and SWIFT connectivity through a unified platform with value-added services such as eBAM for electronic bank account management. These solutions can be deployed on premise, in a private cloud hosted environment, or as a SaaS* model. The new versions are now available to new and existing customers.
