Bahrain Middle East Bank (BMB) has chosen Wolters Kluwer’s OneSumX for Finance solution to provide the basis for its core banking and reporting system.
Banks’ finance functions are facing significant changes that are reshaping the way they operate. To support these changes, banks require access to more complex systems, with high tech components and highly-skilled guidance. The markets, the board, management, auditors and regulators are all asking finance departments to produce increasingly sensitive and detailed analysis and forecasts, often more quickly than ever before. At the same time, internal teams are pushing the finance function to bring more value to the global strategy while encompassing the function with accuracy and ease. OneSumX for Finance supports financial institutions in their strategic planning, budgeting and forecasting through simulations and analytics.
OneSumX for Finance has the flexibility to adapt to rapidly evolving regulatory requirements, providing financial institutions with fully integrated finance functionality, from event to disclosure, with built-in content and expert support.
