For over a decade, the Geneva and Eze teams have worked together. Even before Eze joined SS&C, we had clients in common and cooperated to minimize workflow issues they might experience from using best-in-class solutions from two different vendors. Our cooperation, however, understandably stopped short of full product development collaboration and sharing of intellectual property.
That’s all changed. Since SS&C completed the acquisition of Eze last year and brought both companies under one roof, we have reinforced and expanded our commitment to ensuring shared workflows are smoother than ever. We now share information on proprietary technologies and product development roadmaps, and we’ve collaborated on strategies to tackle the market, regulatory and competitive issues that keep our clients up at night. Clients continue to benefit from both teams’ knowledge and commitment to serving the alternative and asset management markets with best-in-class client support. Additionally, our clients now get a team that has benefitted from a unique marketplace opportunity to collaborate more effectively, leverage combined strengths, and ultimately create a seamless front-to-back experience for current and future clients.
We are joining forces on account management and product development to ensure our clients experience the simplicity of working with a single provider. We have exciting plans to augment our clients’ experience with a front-to-back integration in order to provide better communication and delivery of investment data between the two solutions. As a core principle, we believe that event-based communication—leveraging latest technological frameworks and programmatic APIs as appropriate—is the best way to fully support security master updates, seamless integration of positions, and more real-time trade capture opportunities. Our aim is to make workflows less manual, so clients can focus more of their time on the business of investing.
With an eye to the future, we are syncing our product roadmaps and assuming shared product management responsibilities where it makes sense. Both Advent and Eze have extensive experience creating award-winning product combinations, and we’re thrilled to be working together on this exciting new project. We envision opportunities to package or bundle our solutions, providing clients a faster path to greater operational efficiency and delivering fully integrated front-to-back solutions so that our clients fully realize the benefits of working with one provider.
Our commitment to this industry is fortified by the partnership and in fact, both SS&C Eze’s OMS and SS&C Advent were recognized in the annual Waters Rankings 2019 Awards as the Best Buy-Side Order Management System (OMS) Provider and the Best Accounting System Provider, respectively.
