San Francisco, June 10, 2004 Calypso Technology announced today that it has been awarded the 2004 Banker Technology Award for Back Office Application of the Year. The Banker, a publication of the Financial Times Business Group, launched its annual technology awards in 2003, to recognize technology vendors in the financial markets. This is the second consecutive year that Calypso has won this award.
"Calypso’s back office application continues to set the standard for systems, both in terms of technology and functionality. Calypso’s clients are able to realize real gains from the system, which was key in our consideration of all the candidates. Calypso takes a fresh approach to the challenges faced by operations teams and continues to enhance its application to eliminate the users pain points. Calypso is only one of two repeat winners of our technology awards and we commend them highly for this achievement," said Parveen Bansal, Technology Editor for The Banker.
"With the innovation in the financial markets today, operational infrastructure has become more strategic in nature. Leading banks cannot afford to have their back office systems restrict their ability to grow the business. In addition to providing cost efficiencies, a back office must be scalable and flexible. We built Calypso’s back office application to serve as a platform for growth for our clients, and are very pleased to be recognized for our efforts" said Charles Marston, CEO of Calypso Technology.
