ecofinance Finanzsoftware & Consulting has introduced its latest release Integrated Treasury System (ITS) 9.0.0. Users benefit from greater usability, as well as many system enhancements. The changeover to a new financial file standard ISO20022 contributes towards further internationalisation in payments processing. New features include the management and valuation of compound options (option on an option) and commodity swaps. Both the Black-Scholes model and the LIBOR market model can be used to value interest options.
In order to simplify users’ day-to-day work processes, ecofinance has further optimised usability. In liquidity planning, users can now easily create currencies and money market transactions directly from the liquidity plan. Once a new transaction has been created, cash flows with a scheduling extension are transferred directly to the opened plan. ecofinance has also improved the handling of bank statements through enhanced search and print functions, along with an improved display facility.
