Trema has formed a partnership with Gresham Computing, a software and integration firm with a large number of clients in the Asia Pacific region. The partners have also signed Petronas, one of the largest oil companies in South-East Asia, as their first client. Trema’s solutions will be implemented by Gresham’s integration team in Asia. Petronas, the first client signed by the partnership, sought a vendor through a formal tender process to automate its treasury and cash management functions and chose Trema’s modular treasury as the most suitable solution to serve its needs. Gresham’s CEO, Andrew Walton-Green, said: “We are delighted to enter into this partnership with Trema. It is a leader in its field and its solution addresses the key issues that corporates are facing today.” In another move, Trema, announced that the Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago (CBTT) in Port of Spain has selected the Trema solution, Finance KIT, to support its foreign reserve management operations and key business activity associated with other central banking functions.
