Gresham’s CTC software allows real-time, business driven controls to be put into place as soon as a new financial product is created, allowing errors to be identified and rectified from the outset.”
Gresham’s global business development director, Bill Blythe added: “We approached FDM to be a strategic implementation partner as the quality of their training is unrivalled and we believe their IT consultants will accelerate our capabilities, especially building on FDM’s excellent credentials with major global banks. FDM will provide our core implementation team with the scalability and global reach we will need to meet customer demand.”
