Zanders wins two awards!
During this year's Adam Smith Award contest, organized bij Treasury Today, Zanders and its client Kongsberg Automotive Group AG won an award for the Best FinTech Solution. As a response to the increased need for a reliable, consistent and efficient framework to determine arm’s length interest rates on intercompany transactions, Kongsberg Automotive implemented an advanced but easy-to-use web-based Intercompany Credit Rating and Pricing (ICRP) solution, supported by Zanders. The ICRP solution, offered on Zanders Inside, is a cloud-based platform that provides clients with unique tools, knowledge and education in the areas of treasury, risk and finance
System provider Kyriba selected Zanders to be the 'Implementation Partner of the year'. The Kyriba partner awards are held once a year to recognize those partners that have made an outstanding contribution to client success. As part of this consideration, Kyriba values those partners that fully understood not only the customers requirements, but also how the Kyriba solution met their unique challenges - in this case during a project at Royal FrieslandCampina. Simon Shorthouse, Kyriba's MD Northern Europe, stated, "We congratulate Zanders on winning this award. Their commitment to the on-boarding process sets a benchmark for the Kyriba partner community and we look forward to continue to work with the Zanders team."
