From the Association for Financial Professionals’ annual conference (#AFP2014), Reval announced today that its new version 14.1 Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for Treasury and Risk Management (TRM) offers more control and access for companies scaling their treasury operations globally. Reval will be at booth #1227 through November 5.
“As companies expand into new markets either organically or by mergers or acquisitions, they need a treasury system that can scale with them,” says Reval Chief Technology Officer Philip Pettinato. “Our SaaS TRM solution enables growing treasuries to assimilate the operations of their new entities and define their own controls. Staff can also access the same technology and set of treasury intelligence – regardless of location – for a seamless global workflow.”
New version 14.1 of Reval’s SaaS TRM provides more controls for setting up workflow around data and security of payments. Among the enhancements around payments, Reval provides mTAN (mobile Transaction Authentication Number) for payment authentication via email or mobile SMS, whichever is most appropriate for the treasury organization. For mobile treasury, this provides an extra layer of authentication.
Reval’s new release provides greater control, speed and visibility into local treasury operations around the world. Global companies can apply independent general ledger processing by region for daily cash, month-end cash, and hedge accounting activity. Users can trigger ledger processes for their region throughout the business day without interfering with the ledger processes of other regions. In addition, enhanced subledger accounting capabilities for working capital transactions now accommodate accounting nuances across global accounting standards.
With Reval 14.1, corporate treasurers can feel confident that their global organization will remain compliant with the latest local and international regulatory requirements. Reval’s deep expertise and award-winning capabilities in hedge accounting continue to keep treasury one step ahead of evolving requirements. Reval 14.1 includes a new methodology compliant with the latest hedge accounting guidelines from the Big 4 accounting firms. This new methodology for the assessment and measurement of hedge effectiveness for Interest Rate Swaps in Cash Flow Hedges (CFH) using the Hypothetical Derivative Method improves effectiveness for the treatment of Off-Market Value Derivatives.
Reval continues to evolve its compliance capabilities, including ongoing updates for Dodd-Frank and EMIR, and continues to monitor market requirements and new developments, such as Basel III, and how they affect corporate treasuries.
