Microsoft will announce the availability of Citi’s CitiDirect BESM Tablet app for Windows 8.1 at the Sibos Conference in Boston, US, which starts later today.
Aimed at its largest corporate treasury clients, the app is a channel extension of the bank’s CitiDirect BE corporate banking platform.
The app will be available at no cost in 79 countries and nine languages in the Windows store.
“Technology is improving every part of the customer experience, and being able to provide our treasury clients with real-time information wherever they are working helps them be more productive and make more informed business decisions,” said Hubert Jolly, global head, Channel, Enterprise and Prepaid Services at Citi’s Treasury and Trade Solutions. “By working closely with Microsoft, we have developed a solution that can be accessed from nearly any Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 tablet or device, which is important to our clients because many operate their businesses on the Windows platform.”
The app provides fingertip access to business-critical financial information from a range of enterprise-grade Windows devices, helping to meet the demands of sophisticated corporate treasury and trade services.
Customers are able to access the app with the enterprise-grade security and manageability required by corporate IT departments, and can seamlessly access Microsoft’s enterprise productivity and collaboration solutions.
“Now is a critical time for financial institutions to become digital information businesses, drive engaging customer experiences, deliver the products and services demanded by customers, and capitalise on new business models that were previously unattainable,” said Colin Kerr, director of Worldwide Banking, Microsoft. “Citi is a leader in this digital transformation, and we are delighted to see the launch of CitiDirect BE Tablet on Windows 8.1 to support corporate treasury executives and operations staff with deep business insights.”
Thanks to the CitiDirect BE Tablet app for Windows 8.1, treasury executives can quickly execute activities such as authorising transactions or monitoring account balances across geographies in a map with visibility into mission-critical financial information in real time.
Also, thanks to a filter system, the solution enables financial data to be customised by factors such as balance type, currency and total amount, meaning a global view can be attained and distributed across the treasury.
