Planixs, the leading provider of real-time, intraday cash, collateral and liquidity management solutions, has announced today that Allied Irish Banks (AIB) has gone live with its Realiti® treasury software that will improve AIB’s liquidity management processes and transform its treasury operations.
Realiti is the world’s only true real-time intraday liquidity management solution, providing treasury functions with the ability to gain instant visibility of their cash, collateral and liquidity at any point during the day. Using this insight, banking firms can improve treasury operations, better manage liquidity risk, ensure regulatory compliance and reduce overdraft and liquidity buffer costs.
The software is used in a large number of global financial institutions, including five G-SIBs, with clients including Lloyds Banking Group, Santander, Norddeutsche Landesbank (NORD/LB), Banque Internationale à Luxembourg (BIL), Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW), SIX Group, Scotiabank, Europe Arab Bank and Zenith Bank.
Established in 1966, AIB is one of the largest commercial banks in Ireland and offers a full range of personal, business and corporate banking services.
As one of the largest banks in Ireland, AIB monitors and funds numerous accounts in all the major global currencies on a daily basis, equating to a significant amount of transactions. Initiating improvements in managing these transactions, AIB selected Planixs’ real-time liquidity solution to automate tasks and provide the bank with insight across all accounts and transactions.
As part of the ‘go-live’ implementation, Planixs delivered its Intraday Liquidity Management and Funding & Forecasting modules, with plans to shortly implement Intraday Reconciliation and Regulatory Reports together with the potential to add further modules in the future. These modules, when fully deployed will allow AIB to gain real-time insight into liquidity positions; detailed analytics and forecasts of end of day projections for all accounts; real-time auto matching capabilities and to meet regulatory reporting requirements.
Furthermore, the rollout will see Planixs provide a fully hosted SaaS service for AIB, where hosting, infrastructure and IT operations are taken care of by the software provider.
Brendan Bane, Head of Liquidity & ST Funding at AIB, comments “Planixs has demonstrated that Realiti is a best in class solution to transform our treasury operations and provide us with real-time insights. Upon full deployment of the solution, these capabilities will greatly support us in meeting our regulatory requirements and customers’ needs through robust and automated intraday funding processes.”
