The increasing complexity of regulatory reporting and the associated higher costs combined with the existing cost pressure present challenges for many reporting institutions. In particular, the operation of software solutions, whether it is an in-house development or a standard software, is a significant cost and time burden for them.

Cost-driving factors can be, for example, a lack of subject or technical know-how, costs for hardware and administration, or the time-consuming coordination with the computing center or with specialist departments. Since regulatory reporting is not the core business of banks and insurance companies, many institutions are looking for solutions to handle regulatory reporting in a simpler and more cost-effective manner.

In order to support our customers in tackling these challenges, we have developed a comprehensive, modular and individually configurable "Managed Services" offering.

Why Managed Services is the right choice for you?

Tino Kesseli, Head of IT at CSL Corporate Services / November 2018, Press release

We opted for Abacus Transactions as we could minimize the IT development and deployment effort with a Regulatory-as-a Service set-up, yet use a standardized reporting solution. Functional benefits were important in our decision for Abacus Transactions. For example, the module relevance check allows us to build a single interface for our source systems and report across multiple transaction based reporting regimes using such single interface.

Martin Kuijper, Head of IT at BNG Bank / August 2017, Press release

We opted for ABACUS/Solvency II for two major reasons: it’s a proven solution and it was available as SaaS. So we will be able to achieve a rapid deployment within a few months with customized processes.
