TIS & Treasury Strategies Announce an Integrated Bank Fee Analysis Solution for Corporate Treasury & Finance

Global Bank Connectivity, Account Management, & Fee Analysis Through a Single Solution

BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / January 16, 2024 / Today, Treasury Intelligence Solutions (TIS) and Treasury Strategies, a division of Curinos, Inc., have announced a new partnership agreement that will see Treasury Strategies’ global bank fee analysis platform integrated with the TIS cloud platform for cashflow, liquidity, and payments. By leveraging the combined solutions of TIS and Treasury Strategies, corporate treasury and finance teams can now gain complete control and visibility over every element of their banking operations through a single structure.

Since 2010, TIS has enabled organizations to connect their entire banking and back-office landscape together through a single platform that streamlines payments and reporting, simplifies bank account management, and provides total visibility over account balances, transaction details, and all associated bank documentation. By adding the capabilities of the Treasury Strategies bank fee analysis solution, TIS clients can now easily monitor bank fees across all their relationships, standardize fee categories for benchmarking purposes, and automatically identify pricing discrepancies on monthly statements. These capabilities unlock a whole new tier of operational efficiency for clients who want to quickly analyze bank fees across all their relationships and account structures, benchmark these costs across each bank relationship, and then compare their fees against what similar companies are charged both domestically and globally.

Given that TIS has integrated over 85,000 client bank accounts with their platform and can connect organizations to 11,000+ global banking options, the Treasury Strategies bank fee analysis solution serves as a natural extension of these core capabilities. According to Jon Paquette, SVP Solutions at TIS, "The TIS and Treasury Strategies integration is the latest example of our commitment to provide businesses of all sizes and industries with top-tier bank connectivity and bank account management services. With Treasury Strategies as our partner, clients can now access an unprecedented range of datasets to help them evaluate and benchmark the costs of their banking operations on a global scale. This will ultimately enable them to more effectively identify inefficiencies, eliminate redundancies, and create a more sustainable, streamlined, and cost-effective banking structure."

This perspective was shared by Peter Serene, Managing Director of Commercial solutions at Curinos, who added, "We’re thrilled to partner with TIS, integrating our advanced bank fee analysis solution, NDepth, into their comprehensive treasury management suite. In today’s evolving bank fee and ECR landscape, NDepth is a critical tool. It’s designed to empower organizations with unparalleled visibility into their financial operations, aligning with TIS’ mission to simplify global payments and cash management. Together, we help organizations assert control over their bank fees, optimize financial processes, and realize substantial savings.

Fortinet Announces the Industry’s First Wi-Fi 7–Enabled Secure Networking Solution

New Wi-Fi 7 access point and 10 Gigabit Power over Ethernet switch unlock 2x faster speeds and increased capacity for Fortinet’s integrated portfolio of secure wired and wireless offerings

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), the global cybersecurity leader driving the convergence of networking and security, today announced the industry’s only comprehensive secure networking solution integrated with Wi-Fi 7. Fortinet’s first Wi-Fi 7 access point, FortiAP 441K, delivers increased speed and capacity, and the new FortiSwitch T1024 is purpose-built with 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) access and 90W Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology to support Wi-Fi 7 bandwidth requirements. These new devices deliver the cutting-edge wireless performance today’s enterprises need and, as a part of the Fortinet Secure Networking solution, seamlessly integrate with AIOps and FortiGuard AI-Powered Security Services for unmatched security, visibility, and control.

“Fortinet is the only vendor converging networking technology and AI-powered security into a single, holistic solution to connect and protect the wired and wireless LAN,” said John Maddison, Chief Marketing Officer and EVP, Product Strategy at Fortinet. “With today’s news, we’re putting the latest wireless technology breakthrough into the hands of customers, who can now take advantage of Wi-Fi 7’s increased throughput while keeping their wireless traffic secure and their business efficient.”

Helping customers harness the power of Wi-Fi 7
Enterprises are eager to embrace the increased speed and bandwidth of Wi-Fi 7, the latest generation of wireless technology, to support data-heavy applications and wireless devices in their networks. However, new technologies like Wi-Fi 7 can expand an organization’s attack surface, and legacy security solutions may struggle to inspect and secure the increase in data-rich traffic. In today’s sophisticated, constantly evolving threat landscape, organizations cannot leave gaps in their security posture unchecked. Fortinet’s comprehensive Secure Networking solution supports Wi-Fi 7 while delivering the enterprise-grade protection, AI-powered security, and AIOps automation capabilities customers need to keep their wireless traffic secure.

New AP and switch bring Wi-Fi 7 to the enterprise
The new FortiAP 441K and FortiSwitch T1024 are the latest innovations within the Fortinet Secure Networking solution, which converges networking technologies with AI-powered security across all edges. The FortiAP 441K leverages the Wi-Fi 7 Qualcomm® Networking Pro 1220 Platform from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a leading wireless technology innovator at the forefront of the development of Wi-Fi 7, and delivers the following benefits:

  • Up to 2x faster connection speeds: The FortiAP 441K delivers lightning-fast wireless connections that are up to 2x faster for the same configuration.
  • Faster data transfer than ever before: Support for 4096 QAM enables faster data transfer, which is critical for bandwidth-heavy enterprise applications, such as video streaming and collaboration tools.
  • Lower latency: By using 320MHz channels, a single FortiAP 441K can leverage a wider spectrum to improve data speeds and reduce latency to ensure a positive end-user experience.
  • Better load balancing and reduced interference: Flexible channel utilization through preamble puncturing and advanced multi-link operation ensures highly resilient and reliable connections to keep businesses online and productive.

To take full advantage of all the benefits of Wi-Fi 7, organizations must ensure their underlying network infrastructure can accommodate the increased speed and capacity demands. The new FortiSwitch T1024 10 GE access switch with 90W PoE was designed specifically to support new Wi-Fi 7–enabled APs. When customers use the new AP and switch together, they can harness the faster speed, power, and performance of Wi-Fi 7 and ensure an excellent experience for all users and devices.

The industry-leading Fortinet Secure Networking solution
The Fortinet Secure Networking solution is a part of Fortinet’s cybersecurity platform—the Fortinet Security Fabric—and because of this tight integration, organizations can seamlessly converge networking devices with cutting-edge security. This enables customers to use FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls as wireless controllers to benefit from FortiGuard AI-Powered Security Services like advanced malware protection, sandboxing, and web filtering. Customers can also leverage FortiAIOps, Fortinet’s AI for IT operations tool, to generate real-time insights into potential network issues and automate manual tasks throughout the WAN and LAN. And with the introduction of Wi-Fi 7, the solution delivers all these capabilities with industry-leading wireless speed and capacity.

“Qualcomm Technologies is pleased to continue collaborating closely with Fortinet to pair next-gen Secure Networking solutions with our Qualcomm Networking Pro 1220 platform. The Qualcomm Networking Pro 1220 platform in the FortiAP 441K is designed to set new benchmarks for enterprise networking performance with massive capacity, wire-like stability and blazing fast speeds, pushing the boundaries of what Wi-Fi can do in the modern enterprise.” — Ganesh Swaminathan, Vice President and General Manager, Wireless Infrastructure and Networking, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

“We were thrilled to learn that Fortinet was ahead of the curve with a Wi-Fi 7–capable access point. I have designed and installed wireless technology from myriad vendors for more than 20 years, but it wasn’t until the FortiAP 441K that I truly understood all of the networking, security, and spectrum analysis features missing from other vendors. Fortinet takes the technology to an entirely new level and have yet again exponentially exceeded all expectations by delivering world class connectivity, security, diagnostics, and analytics in their latest wireless solution.” – Mike Chase, SVP solutions engineering, AireSpring

“We forecast that in five years, over three-fourths of Enterprise WLAN revenue will come from Wi-Fi 7 access points, driven by demand to make use of the new 6 GHz spectrum. Coincident with the introduction of Wi-Fi 7 availability, we see a trend where organizations will demand that their Wi-Fi infrastructure is very tightly integrated with its security infrastructure. Fortinet is well positioned as one of the first major enterprise vendors to introduce Wi-Fi 7 and has aggressively incorporated security functions to its networking products.” – Chris Depuy, Co-Founder and Technology Analyst, 650 Group

PBO Logistics Expands Business Using Descartes’ Last Mile Delivery Solution

LONDON, U.K. and ATLANTA, Georgia, Jan. 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that U.K.-headquartered PBO Logistics has significantly expanded its business with help from Descartes’ last mile delivery solution. The Descartes last mile delivery solution allowed PBO Logistics to plan and execute over five-fold the volume of monthly deliveries.

“Prior to Descartes, our warehousing and road freight team would manage the storage and deliveries for around 11,000 boxes per month. Two planners used manual processes to plan routes and schedule deliveries,” said Matt Shields, Director, PBO Logistics. “In order to win a major new contract, we had to prove our team could scale operations to schedule and deliver on-time around 60,000 boxes monthly across the U.K. Investing in Descartes’ solution was vital to achieving this goal without increasing headcount. Our fleet of 50 vehicles delivers high-value homeware goods daily, and we keep customers updated about the delivery status with customer notifications and electronic proof-of-delivery (ePOD).”

Descartes’ cloud-based last mile delivery solution helps distribution-intensive companies improve operational efficiency and customer experience. It supports dynamic delivery requirements, including same-day delivery, by offering flexible, efficient and cost-effective time windows and delivery options. The Descartes solution improves route productivity by using advanced optimisation technology to reduce the distance driven per delivery, which maximizes delivery capacity and reduces costs. With an integrated GPS-based mobile application, the solution coordinates drivers, dispatchers and call centers to ensure that routes are executed according to plan and exceptions are handled efficiently. ePOD captures delivery details and streamlines the delivery process, and self-service customer engagement allows customers to track their orders in real-time. The solution improves delivery sustainability through increased route productivity, which results in less CO2 per delivery and eliminates paper manifests and delivery documents.

“It’s rewarding to see how PBO Logistics has dramatically improved productivity and grown its business through the use of our last mile delivery solution,” said Gary Taylor, VP Sales, EMEA at Descartes. “Our industry leading last mile delivery solution helps B2C and B2B operations significantly improve their efficiency, effectiveness and customer experience.”
