Accurate Software today announced that Bank J. Van Breda & Co, a niche player in the Belgian banking sector is deploying Accurate's Operational Risk Management solution to fully automate the reconciliation of its nostro accounts. Bank J. Van Breda & Co is a specialist bank for entrepreneurs and

functionality within Accurate NXG.

Van Breda & Co with a single risk control framework for nostro and cheque reconciliations - enabling them to benefit from better visibility of cash movements, improved management of liquidity, and reduction of risks associated with foreign currency transactions. Furthermore, the flexible architecture of Accurate NXG means it can easily develop as the bank's business or technology demands change.
