MIT's TRAC system supports UBS's fast growing Commodity Trade Finance business...

After considering several options, UBS AG has selected TRAC to support its fast growing Commodity Trade Finance (CTF) business. TRAC (Trade Risk Active Control) is a collateral management software, supporting Banks’ Structured Trade Commodity Finance activities.

The product will be physically installed in one single location in Switzerland, and fully integrated within UBS AG’s IT infrastructure. Furthermore, the true multi-branch architecture of TRAC will allow CTF teams based in Geneva, Zürich, and Lugano to connect remotely to one centralised system.

"It’s a highly strategic contract and reference for us" said MIT’s General Manager Paul Cohen Dumani adding that "as part of this deal, the product will be significantly enhanced with very interesting new functionalities that will be made available to the Banking community". A first go-live including a first lot of new functionalities is foreseen for the second quarter of 2014, while a second go-live including a second lot of new functionalities is due to take place during the third quarter of next year.

Paul Cohen Dumani concludes: "I believe MIT was chosen not only for the many features already available in the software, but also for our proven in-depth knowledge of the CTF business. We understood clearly the level of automation they wanted to achieve, as we were able to suggest concrete and realistic solutions for issues they needed to address".

February 2011,

MIT (Micro Informatique & Technologies SA), Lausanne announces that Banque Cantonale de Genève (BCGE) went live with MIT's latest product TRAC (Trade Risk Active Control). TRAC will support the activity of the BCGE in Trade Commodity Finance.

Cohen Dumani adds: “ BCGE backed us in this project since the very beginning, and believed the TRAC concept was the right answer to a lack of automation in the Trade Commodity Finance sector. Their experience and input throughout the whole project proved to be a highly useful complement to our expertise in this field”.  

Pierre-Olivier Fragnière, head of Global Commodity Finance at BCGE declared: “We are satisfied with our partnership with MIT, and especially with the fact that they were able to meet the deadlines set in their roadmap for the development of the TRAC project”.
