Citi’s Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS) launched version one of their CitiDirect BESM Tablet, a new app for iPad providing visibility into important transactional and financial information, supporting decision-making and business management for treasury and finance executives. Designed exclusively for CitiDirect BE users, CitiDirect BE Tablet provides flexibility and control to access critical information in just a few taps. CitiDirect BE Tablet is available for free from the App Store.
CitiDirect BE Tablet gives clients finger-tip access to real-time mission-critical financial information allowing them to monitor and stay abreast of business developments, through an iPad-optimized experience. Treasury and finance executives can use CitiDirect BE Tablet to check their company’s global cash position and action on their payments activity globally. With a few taps, they can drill down onto a map or a graph to see the resulting balances and then subsequently confirm the execution of the company’s financial strategy.
Developed by the TTS team, including the Citi Innovation Lab Dublin, the new service brings core functionality available on the CitiDirect BE platform directly to clients’ iPads. With CitiDirect BE Tablet, clients can:
- use features and discovery tools to customize data views to support strategic decision-making.
- translate data into global business intelligence with just a few taps. View data globally, by region or country; and filter by currency, amount and country in chart or map views.
- authorize, release and repair payments anytime and everywhere
CitiDirect BE Tablet is currently available in English and is live in 23 countries around the world including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Netherlands, Nigeria, Peru, Poland, Puerto Rico, Romania, Spain, Tanzania, United States and the United Kingdom. CitiDirect BE Tablet will be updated with additional languages and rolled-out globally throughout the remainder of the year. It is expected to be available on AndroidTM devices early 2014 and additional platforms thereafter.
There is a race to become the world’s digital bank with a full digitally enabled tool set to meet coporate client needs. However, these digital tools still need to be just part of a fully integrated service delivery package.
