USA: Nestle SA Selects SunGard's Quantum Treasury System
Nestle SA chose Quantum to handle its foreign exchange, interest rate and derivative products and for its sophisticated risk and cash management functions.
"We are delighted to partner with Nestle SA in this strategic project,
" said Martin Boyd, managing director, SunGard Treasury Systems, Europe. "The Nestle selection process established a new milestone in the way we approach major corporations.
"Early involvement in the customer's requirements definition process allowed the breadth of our product and service offering to demonstrate valuable differentiation and business advantage. In particular, a key element of the implementation process for Nestle will also involve re-engineering the Treasury business processes," he said.
The use of SunGard's Quantum Treasury System will be integrated into Nestle's overall systems infrastructure, including its recently signed agreement with SAP.
Quantum is a total front-, middle- and back-office treasury, cash and risk management system, which enables real-time, straight-through processing, from the point of deal capture through to settlements, confirmations and accounting. Quantum is now -- along with GTM, ICMS/TS, ProFX and ResourceIQ2 -- a fully integrated and Web-enabled SunGard treasury solution.
