US-based Navistar International Corporation, a leading producer of commercial trucks, school buses and mid-range diesel engines, has selected SunGard Treasury Systems’ AvantGard-ICMS for all aspects of cash management, debt and investment functionality. This includes support for interest rate and cross-currency swaps, general ledger interfacing and FAS 133 derivatives reporting. AvantGard will support one treasury centre in the US and two in Mexico.
