Optial & Atlantic Link announce Alliance

London - 5 December 2006

Optial is delighted to announce as part of their expanding partnership program a new relationship with Atlantic Link, a global provider of business consulting services. The alliance has been established to help financial services companies to meet the demands of the increasingly stringent regulatory environment. It marries Optial’s operational risk and compliance software expertise with Atlantic Link’s skill in identifying and translating regulatory requirements into policies and practices.

Eric Werner, Partner at Atlantic link said: “When we considered the capabilities and flexibility that the Optial system can offer our clients, they were the logical choice as technology partners. Optial’s web based compliance and risk management solution, dramatically simplifies the process of managing business assurance activities. It increases security, delivers more accurate information & generates efficiencies that translate into cost savings”.

Chris O’Brien, Optial CEO commented; “The strategic alliance between Optial & Atlantic Link strengthens the integrity of the information upon which financial institutions base major business decisions. The business expertise Atlantic Link brings makes it ideally suited to deploy software solutions. Atlantic Link provides professional services personnel who are trained in the product and how to configure it to meet the business objectives”.

The combination of Atlantic Link’s depth of experience within the financial sector and Optial’s software, means that financial organizations are equipped to meet the challenges they face in translating regulatory requirements, implementing process and encouraging change throughout all levels of the organisation.
