Despite Bangladesh sustaining healthy levels of GDP and international trade growth, the banking sector continues to face challenges and uncertainty. An unprecedented rise in the banked population has led to a tremendous increase in the volume of low-value transactions which banks need to process. This, combined with ever more sophisticated financial scams, is putting stress on back office operations but investment continues to be focused on the front office.
On 20 September 2014, AMFCO, Simple Solutions and SmartStream Technologies will be officially launching SmartStream's industry-leading Corona reconciliation and exception management solution in Bangladesh. At the event the specialists from both SmartStream and AMFCO will demonstrate, through the use of active customer case studies, how automating traditionally manual back office processes can provide huge benefits to financial institutions.
Corona is the world's most widely-deployed SWIFT Certified, modular application that addresses the reconciliation and exception management needs of institutions of all sizes. It provides greater transaction management control whilst its out-of-the-box functionality enables firms to significantly reduce their time to benefit.
Corona provides a range of advanced functionality for typical intra-day and end-of-day operations control, exception detection and investigations management. Liquidity can be managed on a real-time basis supporting greater control of a firm's financial exposure and a greater ability to exploit market trends. It delivers greater operational efficiency while reducing operational costs and risk through exception detection and enhanced transaction management.
Corona and its diverse modules (Cash, Securities, Confirmations, Investigations, Universal Data, Inter-System, Cards and Archive) are designed to automate multi-product processing operations to deliver greater control and visibility into transactions.
