Migros, Switzerland’s largest retail company, supermarket chain, and private employer, has an unwavering commitment to core technical advancements to support its position as the leading in-region supermarket.
Wallstreet Suite is an enterprise-level treasury management system. The new solution is designed to handle complex treasury needs, while providing global visibility to cash, liquidity, and exposures. Wallstreet Suite’s modular, service-oriented architecture enables finance teams to achieve more through automation and exception management, making it possible to scale operations and bring greater visibility to the finance organization.
Migros sought to improve automation and data visibility within their treasury processes. The business will benefit from Wallstreet Suite’s new user experience that equips users to monitor trades, bank statements, settlements, and statuses in real time with visual alerts. Migros also looked to advance their technology and reduce their total cost of ownership by migrating their operations to the ION Cloud. Running Wallstreet Suite in the Cloud will simplify Migros’ operations, reduce their costs, and increase their agility while improving the overall security and integration of the solution.
“We upgraded to the new Wallstreet Suite to automate our business processes, improve data management, support our advanced reporting, and increase visibility to free up our treasurers’ time. We will use Wallstreet Suite to centralize workflows, automate key processes like bank reporting and settlement, and provide easy component upgrades. This is an exciting step in our partnership with ION, further applying our mutual commitment to using advanced, automated technologies,” said Beda Ledergerber, Head of Treasury at Migros.
“We are very excited to bring Migros to the new Wallstreet Suite solution and at the same time migrate them to our ION Cloud,” said Rich Grossi, CEO of ION Corporates. “Migros’ adoption is a new milestone in our long-standing relationship spanning over 25 years, and a testament to the benefits of the long-term client partnerships ION seeks. With the new solution, Migros realizes immediate benefits around centralization, visibility, control, and efficiency, while getting ready for further deployment activity by onboarding new businesses to a common treasury model.”
“By migrating to the ION Cloud, Migros has chosen the ideal environment to benefit from high system performance for Wallstreet Suite enabling scalability and business agility, yet reducing total cost of ownership,” said Loic Leonard, Head of Product (Wallstreet Suite) at ION Treasury. “We are delighted to see Migros leverage the innovations we have brought to the new Wallstreet Suite in bank account management, real-time bank reporting and cash positioning, trade confirmation matching, treasury analytics, and reporting and to leverage each within the ION Cloud.”
