Eschborn/Immenstaad, May 28, 2019 – In the digital world, speed and transparency are vital when taking operational decisions. They have to be based on all the available information and underpinned by clear decision-making rules. That’s why the international consulting and technology company GFT Technologies SE (GFT) and ACTICO GmbH, a leading provider of software solutions for intelligent automation and digital decision-making, have formed a strategic partnership in the German market.

Speed and transparency are vital when taking operational decisions. Technological advances also mean that businesses have to use their digital resources to create value in order to remain competitive and fit for the future. Targeted automation is therefore a vital ingredient in their success.
The financial sector is under particular pressure to manage and use vast quantities of information, handle sensitive personal data and comply with a growing regulatory burden. This heightens the complexity of making consistent, audit-proof decisions in real time. Enter ACTICOs market-leading rules-based technology, which underpins systems such as its Credit Risk Management Platform and Compliance Suite. Coupled with GFT’s many years of experience in providing innovative solutions to the whole financial sector, it significantly boosts the capabilities of clients in the areas of compliance and credit risk management.

ACTICOs cloud-ready software solutions for areas such as credit risk management, lending and compliance complement GFT’s strong IT and project management expertise and extensive knowledge of the sector. That’s why the two companies have decided to form a strategic partnership.
