UniCredit Selects Surecomp for Multi-platform Trade Finance Systems
UniCredit has licensed globally Surecomp’s multi-platform trade finance systems and will deploy Surecomp’s back office trade finance systems to support and enhance the activities of its global transaction banking (GTB) Division.
The licensing agreement will grant UniCredit the flexibility to select and implement the Surecomp back office platform that best meets its individual country or regional requirements. The Unix version of Surecomp’s Imex system will be deployed immediately in Germany, with installations in Italy and other countries to follow.
“Given the significance of this project for UniCredit, we needed a provider with an in-depth understanding of trade finance and proven proficiency in system implementation,” said Markus Wohlgeschaffen, head of global trade finance and services. “The Surecomp sales and project teams displayed both knowledge and commitment, further confirmed by one of our major subsidiaries that already uses Imex. We are pleased to have found in Surecomp a trusted and dependable partner that will support us to further strengthen our position as the leading trade finance bank in the heart of Europe.”
