In the wake of supply chain disruptions due to Covid-19, many observers have reiterated the need for stakeholders to obtain greater visibility in order to optimise supply chain efficiency. During the lockdown, some suppliers have been forced at least temporarily to cease production. Some third party logistics providers have been unable to transport goods across borders. Supply chain lenders need to better understand the information flows in supply chains, not just the financial health of one participant. They require visibility into the entire supply chain and real-time monitoring of physical transactions. Information is vital to any business activity. These days we are often swamped by too much information. We need analytical tools to help us make sense of the data and make informed decisions based on business intelligence. In the digital world, data is the new collateral. The evolving art of predictive analytics enables banks to better manage their relationships, revenues and risks.
Rebecca Harding, CEO, Coriolis Technologies, commented: “We are very excited to be collaborating with iGTB. Both companies share a passion for practical innovations that will make trade finance smarter and faster through the power of digitalisation. Our joint collaboration will not only enhance market understanding of risks, disruptions and potential impacts but ultimately act as a catalyst for digital adoption going forwards.”
Commenting on the partnership, Manish Maakan, CEO, iGTB said, “Collaboration is key to the successful digitalisation of trade and supply chain finance. The strategic partnership between iGTB, the independently acknowledged #1 player in transaction banking and Coriolis Technologies, the #1 data and analytics provide, delivers a unique value proposition that will enable our customers to drive innovation and grow their business with the benefit of having clear insights into predictive analytics and risk forecasting. Together we will drive innovation, leveraging state of the art technologies to mobilise trade data and analytics that will help bridge the trade finance funding gap and ultimately benefit the global economy as a whole”.
