Including products such as riskpro™ financial analysis infrastructure and riskprolight™ - a simplified subset of riskpro™ for Basel II standard credit risk - these solutions come bundled with the know-how and support from IRIS consultants from Switzerland and the region.

Additionally, the partnership will bring new technologies to the market such as Credit Risk rating (PRO-CR), Rating calibration (PRO-REX), OpRisk (operational risk and limit management), And Anti Money Laundering solutions all suited for a fast implementation taking into account the regional market requirements.

By virtue of this partnership, Pio-Tech will be able to provide a flexible and easy-to-use infrastructure, catering mainly to financial organizations, regardless of size.
