Fundtech’s CASHplus Wins Innovation Award from Aite Group
Comprehensive vendor analysis concludes Fundtech is one-step ahead of its competitors
Fundtech Ltd. (NASDAQ: FNDT), a market leader in global transaction banking solutions, announced that it has received two awards in Aite Groups cash management vendor analysis entitled U.S. Cash Management Vendors: The Road to Meeting New Market Expectations. Fundtech is the only vendor to receive two awards.
One of three Innovation Awards was given to Fundtech for its new SmartNav enhancement to CASHplus, the companys cash management system. SmartNav redefines personalization and productivity in cash management by anticipating user preferences and understanding their workflow offering access to any data, any service from anywhere within CASHplus.
According to Christine Barry, Research Director at Aite Group and author of the study, User experience is one of the most important aspects of any cash management system because it determines the users level of productivity and satisfaction. Fundtechs SmartNav wins the Innovation Award because it places this vendor one step ahead of its competitors from a usability standpoint; it enhances not only solution usability within the customer dashboard (the focus of most of the other vendors), but throughout the entire CASHplus solution.
The report also recognized Fundtech as The Vendor to Watch in 2011. Ms. Barry said: This award is given to Fundtech as a result of the significant enhancements made to its CASHplus solution for its latest release.
Ed Gainer, Senior Vice President of US Cash Management for Fundtech, said: We are delighted that the Aite Group report recognized our innovation in user experience for cash management. Our in-depth study of cash management users identified a myriad of improvements that has resulted in a better user experience that increases productivity and satisfaction.
