Citi’s Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS) has launched CitiDirect BESM Tablet, a new app for iPad providing visibility into important transactional and financial information, supporting decision-making and business management for treasury and finance executives.
Designed exclusively for CitiDirect BE users, CitiDirect BE Tablet is available for free from the App Store and provides flexibility and control to access critical information in just a few taps.
The new Tablet is promoted as giving clients fingertip access to critical financial information allowing them to easily monitor and stay abreast of business developments. Treasury and finance executives can use it to check their company’s global cash position and action on their payments activity globally. With a few taps, they can access a map or a graph to see the resulting balances and then subsequently confirm the execution of the company’s financial strategy.
CitiDirect BE Tablet is available in English and is live in 23 countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Netherlands, Nigeria, Peru, Poland, Puerto Rico, Romania, Spain, Tanzania, the US and the UK. It will be updated with additional languages and rolled-out globally in the remaining weeks of 2013 and is expected to be available on AndroidTM devices early next year and additional platforms thereafter.

Due to the low interest rate environment and Basel III regulation many corporate treasurers, who may have in the past been very reliant on the banking sector to provide them with cash management solutions, have been forced to explore alternative options as banks have been refusing short dated cash deposits.
As the May 25 deadline for Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) inches closer, many treasurers are being lumped with the task of ensuring their wider company is compliant.
