Fundtech (Nasdaq:FNDT), a market leader in global transaction banking solutions, announced that Intesa Sanpaolo (ISP) Group Services, headquartered in Torino, Italy, has selected Global CASHplus to provide global cash and liquidity management services to its corporate clients around the world.
The ISP Group has leadership in the Italian market with almost 6,000 branches and a strong international presence with 1,800 branches across 13 countries in Central -- Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. With the implementation of Fundtech's solution, the ISP Group will have the capability to offer SWIFT-based, cross-border cash concentration and pooling services to its clients.
Cross border cash pooling using Global CASHplus will be implemented across ISP banks in Italy; its foreign branches; subsidiaries; and IBOS (International Banking - One Solution) banks -- an international banking alliance focused on providing corporate customers with international cash management solutions.
Global liquidity management solutions help provide corporates with a consolidated view of their accounts across banks, allowing them to automate their cash flows domestically and cross-border after factoring in operational and regulatory constraints. Thus banks provide increased transparency in managing liquidity risk across the entire corporation, as well as reap operational and cost efficiencies.
Global CASHplus' comprehensive multi-country functionality will enable ISP to offer its corporate clients advanced cross-border transaction capability and working capital visibility, including flexible multi-currency and multi-country cash pooling (real and notional), on demand liquidity transfer, and priority-based instruction execution. Global CASHplus will also enable ISP to offer intercompany lending and investment creation support for corporate transfer pricing.
