October 29, 2008 Misys Trade Portal is a unique system that enables banks to offer a full-featured console that seamlessly connects their clients who do international business, enabling them to complete their international trade transactions while simultaneously accessing a wide range of features to follow them up. For example, the system integrates with client ERP systems to facilitate document preparation and associated letters of credit. Misys Trade Portal is also SWIFT-ready. TI Plus is Misys' trade finance back-office for banks, which enables them to manage SLAs, global processing and factoring. Tied together with Trade Portal, as Bank of the West has done, the solution is a full solution that provides the bank with tools to manage trade finance and easily extend services to customers. For a bank like Bank of the West, it enables them to provide international clients with a service that is easily the equivalent, and in many cases stronger, than the largest global banks.
