Chennai [India] / London [UK], May 3 (ANI/PRNewswire): Intellect Global Transaction Banking (iGTB), the transaction banking specialist from Intellect Design Arena Limited, ranked #1 in the world for Transaction Banking by IBS Intelligence, today announced it will support Societe Generale, a major player in the economy for over 150 years, supporting 29 million clients every day with 138,000 staff in 62 countries, in implementing the world's #1 Liquidity Management solution.
While 2020 was a year of great resilience, it has highlighted the urgent need for banks to deliver to their corporate clients significantly increased sophistication in corporate treasury and liquidity management through automation and digitalisation. New capabilities are required to meet the combined challenges presented by negative interest rates, restrictions on cross-currency and cross-border cash pooling, increasing expectations for self-service and delivering cross-functional efficiencies to corporate treasurers. At the same time, financial institutions have been carefully shoring up balance sheets and driving operational efficiencies to ensure appropriate levels of strength to contend with an uncertain economic environment.
In this context, Societe Generale has chosen Intellect iGTB for its world-leading Liquidity Management System (LMS).
iGTB's LMS, and its associated Liquidity Management suite of products, is designed with the premise that every Euro of corporate liquidity will - at some stage - be a Euro of bank liability. LMS's best-in-class real-time cash pooling is augmented with an array of tools for the corporate treasurer to deliver fully automated liquidity management across multiple accounts, multiple entities, multiple currencies, multiple geographies and multiple banks. To support the symbiotic relationship between the corporate treasurer and the bank, iGTB's Liquidity Management suite offers processors to improve the bank's balance sheet metrics and, simultaneously, deliver appropriate value to corporate liquidity and deposits.
In line with its strategy to focus on client centricity and increase operational efficiency, Societe Generale is particularly enthusiastic to work with iGTB, who has a strong track-record in working with large global banks. Societe Generale is confident that together they can bring best-in-class solutions to its corporate clients.
Commenting on this announcement, Manish Maakan, CEO, iGTB said, "This win further demonstrates how iGTB, in partnership with leading banks like Societe Generale, is the market leader for Liquidity Management. The decision of Societe Generale to choose iGTB to support the Bank with its digital transformation journey and growth plans is a reflection of Societe Generale's commitment to increase customer satisfaction while preparing for the future. This new Liquidity Management partnership means that four of the six largest banks in Europe are clients of iGTB, reinforcing our position as the partner of choice for the world's largest financial institutions and underpinning our world-leading position in Liquidity Management and Transaction Banking."
