Treasury System developed and gone live in Vtech in 3 months time

(16 January 2004, Hong Kong)

Being developed by Enterprise Consulting Limited (ECL), the Treasury System - Letter of Credit goes live on 16 January, 2004. The system was developed in 3 months time and went through the stages of specifications, development, training, UAT and data conversion. The Letter of Credit system is fully integrated with the ERP system. The project scope covers Bank Facility Management, Import/Export LC Management, Import/Export Loan Management and Cash Forecasts Management. The system can help Vtech more efficiently utilize the Banking Facility and minimize the borrowing cost. Since most ERP software packages lack this particular set of functionalities, this system can fill the missing jigsaw.

ECL has strengthened the development division to provide more Enterprise solutions to the local market.
