Pressbox (Press Release) -
LONDON, UK. - November 15, 2000- Mercator Software, the e-business transformation company™, and TCA Consulting, a provider of business advice and IT consultancy to the finance sector, today announced that they will work together to provide e-business integration solutions for financial services organisations. The formalised relationship between TCA Consulting and Mercator comes after the TCA Consulting announcement of a £9 million contract to prepare a new pan-European on-line retail brokerage system for ABN AMRO.
This service harnesses TCA Consulting's financial services knowledge and integration expertise with Mercator's world class integration software, delivering the ability to respond rapidly to business change.
The new service is in response to demand from financial services organisations facing the challenge of integrating legacy systems with web front-end systems to support new internet-enabled products and services, integrated customer relationship management and enterprise level risk management.
David Field, Director of TCA Consulting commented, "Mercator's software allows us to respond in e-timescales to our clients' need for faster time to market in the finance sector. This, together with the breadth of relevant financial sector functionality, including adapters to third parties such as TIB and SWIFT, make them an excellent partner."
"We are delighted that TCA Consulting has chosen Mercator to deliver a truly significant and strategic benefit to their business moving forward," stated Peter Jones, COO of Mercator, Northern Europe. "TCA Consulting brings a wealth of domain knowledge and practical experience with respect to the design of application integration architectures for financial services. When this is combined with the technology of Mercator, we are convinced that we have a joint value proposition that will be hard to beat."
