Kyriba partnership growing from strength to strength
At Zanders, we believe that to add meaningful value in our interactions with the treasury community we must strive to develop in-depth knowledge in all areas of treasury. One of the key enablers for treasury functions in this digital era are treasury management systems (TMS), and for that reason we entered into a partnership with Kyriba, a cloud-cased treasury management solution provider, in 2018.
The aim of the partnership with Kyriba is three-fold:
- To build in-depth knowledge around the functionality and configuration of the Kyriba platform, enabling us to advise clients on the suitability of the platform for their needs.
- To add value to the Kyriba implementation process, in combination with our in-depth knowledge, experience and understanding of treasury strategy, operations and controls.
- To act as liaison between Kyriba and corporate treasuries for solution design, implementation services and post-project support.
Similar to our partnerships with other TMS vendors, we chose to enter into an implementation and certification partnership only. We are not a reseller of this solution or for any other TMS. This allows us to maintain our position as a fully independent treasury advisor and to continue to assist clients with their treasury transformation and system selection activities, without bias towards any particular platform.
Since 2018, we have built a track record with impressive client projects and delivered a number of successful implementations of the Kyriba TMS. Our implementation projects covered all areas of Kyriba functionality including Liquidity, Payments, Bank Connectivity, Risk, Deal capture, In-house banking and Accounting. In addition, we were awarded Implementation Partner of the Year in 2019 for our work with GVC Holdings. Currently, we are conducting implementations of Kyriba at corporate treasuries in the USA and Europe.
Zanders is able to deliver this service due to a growing number of in-house Kyriba certified consultants – currently 20 Zanders consultants have achieved certifications ranging from Gold to Platinum level from the Kyriba Centre of Excellence, covering all modules of the platform. In addition to this, the Kyriba certification gives each consultant access to a range of partner-only resources such as the developer support portal, knowledge base, in-depth product technical content, dedicated partner support team and the annual partner summit.
The successful partnership with Kyriba has also resulted in Zanders being admitted to the Partner Advisory Board of Kyriba, enabling us to help with further developing the product and client relationship. The benefits of this are already being realized, with both parties now working together to develop integration with the award-winning Zanders Inside platform.
In summary, with our global reach and in-depth expertise of the Kyriba platform, we are able to form a strong multi-skilled team for projects of all sizes, working independently or alongside Kyriba for specific phases/roles in the project.
