UK-based software vendor Gresham Computing, whose client base is the financial institutions (FI) sector, has formed a partnership with IT services provider FDM Group, which has over 200 clients globally and offices in the world’s major financial centres. Gresham has appointed FDM as a strategic implementation partner for its Clareti Transaction Control (CTC) software.
“Partnering with Gresham is a great opportunity for FDM and there is a good strategic fit between our two companies,” said FDM’s global sales director, Andy Brown said. 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.”
