Financial software provider Misys has unveiled a new suite of programs that it says will help existing clients gain more value from its existing products.
The company has entered into a string of technology partnerships in order to provide the add-ons, which aim to add value in six categories: strategic advantage, technological edge, accelerated deployment, proactive support, enhanced dialogue and return on reputation. This, says Misys, will help companies to maintain competitive edge.
On the strategy side, the programs aim to improve client access to the right people and resources in order to boost growth, whilst the support and technology functions hope to speed up delivery and collaboration. “The Misys Service Delivery Centre provided the best resource possible to help ensure our project success,” commented Pitkänen Tarja, Vice President of Pohjola Bank. “We worked together as one team and this helped us achieve an effective solution delivery.”
So far, the project has been warmly received, with Lav Kataria of Saudi Hallandi Bank commending the “excellent proactive support” and ING Commercial Banking Lending Services chief Hendrik Pothof highlighting opportunities for ROI and showcasing industry leadership. Dr. Burkhard Schäpers, Head of Investment Banking IT Portigon Financial Services, said of the intitiative: “Our involvement in user groups is helping us to drive a stronger collaboration between Misys and its clients, our industry peers. This will help us shape the Misys product roadmap and ultimately drive further strategic advantage.”
“Adding real value is the key factor in ensuring a continuous positive experience,” added Nadeem Syed, CEO of Misys (pictured). “The resulting strong and long-term partnership Misys Connect generates ensures we continue to support our customers as they grow and adapt to changing market demands. We look forward to more clients joining Misys Connect and gaining more value from a deeper relationship with us.”
