"The implementation of Sierra Treasury has a strong emphasis on seamless real-time STP. Real-time interfaces to SWIFT, BAHTNET, multiple dealing systems (Reuters, Cognotec, etc) and several internal settlement and payment systems via SierraLink will increase operational efficiencies at the bank and allow us to reduce operational risk. This, combined with Sierra Treasuryâs proven Risk Management and Credit Limit capability, gives us a solution that will address market, credit, and operational risk with a best of breed solution customized to local conditions." said Dr Pakorn Peetathawatchai from SCB.
With a growing Thai client base, the ability to provide solutions customized to local market requirements and client support, FNX has become the software vendor of choice for the Thai banking market. "Our Bangkok office is staffed with Thai speaking personnel with local market knowledge to ensure the highest level of service for clients. Our ability to work closely with SCB and understand the local market needs was a major factor in the success of this project." said Mark Bell, Head of South East Asia Client Services for FNX.
FNXâs ability to customize Sierra to fit local market requirements has been a driving force for FNXâs success in Southeast Asia. Recent market-specific enhancements to Sierra Treasury include support of Thai Bond Dealer Club pricing, a real time interface to Bahtnet, support for local conventions on call accounts, and numerous other local customizations.
