Rolfe & Nolan Extends Product Range, Delivering Business Processing Functionality To Industry Leader Man Financial

London, 29th April 2004. Man Financial, the leading international broker, has exacting workflow needs. "Our business processing has to be state-of-the-art. In today's fast moving environment no one can afford to drop the ball," said Man Financial's Deputy Chief Executive, Chris Smith. "In a business that is growing as quickly as ours, competent, reliable and adaptable suppliers are a prerequisite. Rolfe & Nolan's service has been excellent."

When it was looking for a new technical solutions provider, Man Financial selected Rolfe & Nolan, which was able to build the required infrastructure to an aggressive project plan and deadline. Carl Butler, Rolfe & Nolan operations director commented: "Our solution involved migrating the business processing services of Man Financial's London office to our data-centre, including a fail-over facility between us and Man Financial's disaster recovery site. The igration involved a wide diversity of services, including support desks, wide area networks, monitoring and management tools, performance and business continuity management."

Rolfe & Nolan carried out a thorough network, hardware and software review to scope the work. A project plan was then agreed, which was executed with minimal disruption to the client. The products and platforms involved included the migration of both internal and SWIFT systems, operating on Solaris and NT platforms. In addition to a reliable and comprehensive solution, Man Financial now benefits from Rolfe & Nolan's professional service levels and an enhanced networking infrastructure.

Bob Freeman, Rolfe & Nolan's chief executive, said: "We have been supplying listed derivatives processing solutions to Man Financial since 1985 and are very familiar with the wide range of processing needs that companies like them have. Our business processing department is highly competent, with an enviable amount of experience, knowledge and skills. It makes sound sense to supply these services like any other product. We are highly gratified to secure a contract in this area from an internationally recognised industry leader."
