Alight LLC announced a strategic partnership to deliver an integrated budgeting, reporting, and planning solution customized for banks. As a thought-leader in driver-based planning across many industries, Don Koenes, Alight VP Services, developed the original best-practice planning model in Alight after working directly with banks to understand their planning challenges.
“Gresham customers are embracing Alight as their solution of choice,” Koenes said. “While some are starting with the simple replacement of cumbersome spreadsheets, the banking executives I have talked to all see the opportunity to take planning to the next level. As banks look to become more proactive and make better decisions faster, agile planning solutions become increasingly important. With Gresham’s customized integration solution that automates data transfer from their Clareti banking transaction system into Alight, combined with Alight’s driver-based planning expertise, Gresham’s customers have a great opportunity to rapidly move up the planning maturity curve.”
Gresham’s Managing Director in Canada, John Walton, says: “Our customers were telling us they needed a planning solution. Being a software company, our first thought was to build our own, however we did take time to evaluate software solutions designed for budgeting and reporting. Once we reviewed the Alight Planning demonstration for banks, we knew that the solution we needed already existed. We are very pleased to be working with the Alight team. They are committed to not only providing the software, but also collaborating with us to ensure each of our client’s installations is a success.”
Banks deploying Alight and Gresham’s integrated budgeting and planning solution include Development Bank of St. Kitts & Nevis and National Bank of the Virgin Islands Ltd.
