Comerica Bank has signed a five-year partnership with CGI to implement CGI’s Proponix360 global trade platform software, which will help the bank reduce costs and enhance customer service.
Comerica was looking for a cost-effective solution to replace its traditional legacy, trade- focused systems, while meeting its ongoing business and technology objectives in a changing market. Proponix360, a web-based customisable software-as-a-service (SaaS), delivers a single integrated platform that provides end-to-end applications addressing traditional trade, open account, supply chain, and cash management functions.
“With a more than 20-year partnership, CGI is uniquely positioned to help Comerica address their global trade services processing needs with Proponix360,” said Steven Starace, vice president at CGI. “CGI’s strong trade and supply chain services and reputation as a global managed services provider help position the bank to gain a competitive advantage in the market.”
