Fides Account Reporting System provides you with a simple way to normalize and validate all bank transaction information in a fraction of the time. ARS consolidates account information such as balances, transactions and booking texts from your banking partners around the world. The solution then consolidates the integrated statements and data into the format you require (i.e MT940/42, BAI, AFT120, etc.).
Access to the final formatted files can be offered through integration with your existing ERP or TMS, via the ARS web portal or even a hybrid model of multiple integrations options.
