Atriax, the online FX trading portal, and CS Lucas have announced the availability of automated ticket output connectivity between the Atriax Dealing System and CS Lucas’ middle and back-end Alpha Station. The new development means foreign exchange trades executed on the Atriax multi-bank dealing portal are routed automatically to CS Lucas’ Alpha Station for processing and settlement. Once the trades are routed into Alpha Station, users retain control in issuing the appropriate payment and receipt instructions electronically to their respective agent banks. At the same time, journal entries are generated and posted into and across the users’ enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, where inter-company payments are arranged.
