US treasury consulting firm Treasury Dynamics (TDi) said that it has acquired rights to Orbit treasury management systems (TMS), a suite of treasury management technology solutions.
The firm added that Orbit TMS is known for its robust, nimble functionality and simple user interface, and is often more affordable than other treasury software. It is also more easily implemented and integrated with existing financial systems, giving TDi the ability to implement an Orbit TMS solution within weeks, rather than months as is often the case.
“Our rapid implementation and attractive license fees put Orbit TMS within easy reach of many companies that up till now have been priced out of the treasury workstation market,” said Orbit developer Dan Farrand. “Many companies can now realise substantial savings starting from day one.”
