PricewaterhouseCoopers and XRT-CERG have formed an alliance to jointly develop Banking Relationship Management (BRM) solutions that will be deployed throughout Europe and North America. BRM provides financial managers with integrated tools, global visibility, traceability, and completely secure financial transactions for all aspects of cash management including accounts receivable, secure payments to vendors and employees, and the optimization of cash and risk positions. As part of the alliance, XRT-CERG will make exclusive use, for a limited period of time, of the expertise of PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Corporate Treasury staff. The teams will work together in developing cash management, risk, and security solutions for strategic analysis (for example, to define optimized processes for treasury and payment centralization), tailored to the new requirements of e-business.
