    Hi E18

    First of all I would like to tell you that a lot of people are answering your questions but you never give any feedback or just leave the task open. We all would appreciate if you could follow the rules as other people do as well.

    There are three leading treasury systems in the market, Wall Street, Quantum from Sungard and SAP. SAP is the only integrated system and uses SAP as a base. Most of the customers run SAP already as their ERP system. If you add SAP treasury on top it is already integrated and therefore no issues with interfaces and SOX compliency etc. Quantum and Wall Street might have the easier input screens but you do not follow the complexity in accounting.

    Furthermore there must be a reason that major companies are using SAP treasury. Big names like Shell, BHP Billiton, Johnson & Johnson, Volkswagen, etc.

    In other words either the person giving that comment does not know anything about treasury or perhaps he has a comission contract with an other provider but definitely no knowledge about systems.

    Kind regards

      Hi E18

      Sorry for not answering earlier but I have been on a holiday for one week.

      Triple Point is not a treasury solution but rather a commodity trading station. As far as I know you cannot create money market, foreign exchange, derivative instruments and securities. They only handle physical and paper trading for commodities. Allegro Treasury is rather a niche product I would say but definitely the leaders are Sungard, Wall Street and SAP.

    Hi E18,

    The person who has

    commented that SAP has Low user-friendliness for non-SAP experienced people especially for traders,I am sure he is not aware of the SAP nor about the TRM Module.Any person with simple basic knowledge on TR products/instruments will surely find the module & the ERP package as a whole as

    awesome & a true solution to the treasury & accouting department needs,which also takes care of audit part.

    As Juerg has already mentioned,SAP is fully integrated with all the modules/sub modules.

    Please suggest the person to use the system for few days or for few transactions,after that you take the feedback.I am sure he will take back his words.

    Please keep up updated ;-)

    Regards,
