The change, in the works since July 2005, draws upon QEDâs significant brand recognition and the reputation of its Q2 Investment Workflow System and Treasury Management System products to reinforce the companyâs focus and commitment to the financial services industry.
"The name change from Information Systems to Financial Systems is meant to re-energize and strengthen our presence in the marketplace and send the message that QED is a viable choice as a business solutions partner and a formidable competitor," states QED President and CEO Joseph Potesta. "Since 1987, our focus has been on building superior rules-based workflow systems for the financial industry that are integrally supported by our professional services teams. Changing our name closely aligns our company image with our offerings and signifies our continued commitment to growth."
Along with the change of the corporate name, QED has adopted a new corporate identity and logo, which will be reflected in all visual communications, including a new corporate web site and printed materials. The new web site is www.QEDFinancialSystems.com.
The name change is effective as of January 1, 2006. All business activities will be conducted under the new name.
