Finning International and Gypsum Management & Supply have joined Selkirk Financial Technologies’ Treasura pilot programme. Treasura is a fully integrated, 100 per cent browser-based treasury management system, scheduled for full release this autumn. Other companies in the pilot programme include Unocal and Hexcel. Gypsum Management & Supply is the largest privately held distributor of drywall in the US. Finning International is a Canada-based international corporation which sells, rents, finances, and provides customer support services for Caterpillar equipment. Tom Morrison, Selkirk’s Vice President, Products, said Selkirk had developed Treasura because many large companies were still using unwieldy and unmanageable spreadsheets.
