AECI, a specialty product and services group of companies, has selected SunGard’s AvantGard Treasury to help optimise the management of its treasury activities. AvantGard will help AECI streamline its treasury business with full front-to-back office accounting and integrated modelling and analysis tools to help manage risk, maximise liquidity, and drive growth.
AECI’s decision to select SunGard was influenced by the SunGard’s local support infrastructure, as well as the professional reputation that SunGard maintains in South Africa.
Trevor Starke, group treasurer, AECI, said: “Our incumbent technology couldn’t keep pace with the growth of our treasury operation and advanced risk mandate. We chose SunGard’s AvantGard to help us better manage our risk and stay on top of evolving compliance requirements.”
