In confirmation of its ongoing global expansion strategy, the company has just signed a partnering agreement with the leading vendor in the region, Keysoft - Financial Performance Management Applications provider.
Heading the new partner based in Atasehir - Istanbul is Fehmi Ozisitmez, who is a veteran in software business and financial performance management applications, will report directly to Tagetik's Chief Operating Officer, Manuel Vellutini. Keysoft (http://keysoft.com.tr/) has strongly committed to Tagetik's mission of helping organizations in all industries translate strategy into operations, manage and measure their overall performance, while improving decision-making down to each business level.
This is the case of Tuerk Ekonomi Bankasi, abbreviated TEB (http://www.teb.com.tr/), the first customer just a few months after the opening of the Turkish distribution. In March 2005, TEB has signed a joint venture agreement with the French BNP Paribas SA, one of the largest financial associations in the world. TEB is aggressively expanding its retail network in Turkey since and has more than 240 branches as of Q2 2007.
TEB's 2010 merger with Fortis Bank increased the group numbers to over 600 branch offices and 10,000 employees. TEB decided to implement Tagetik 3.0 with the support of Keysoft's consultants to manage easily and quickly the rising demands on improving its legal reporting requirements following the merger. The Tagetik's financial reporting application went live as of March 2011.
"Tagetik leverages a global presence in 20 countries, strong relationships with system integrators, technology leaders and local consulting specialists as well as major analysts validation," says Manuel Vellutini, EVP Chief Operating Officer at Tagetik. "The opening of a new distribution in Turkey clearly demonstrates the ability to expand internationally as an independent, specialist software vendor in the CPM market. And the first banking customer in the region is an incredible success as it can help us conquer market credibility and strengthen our enviable track of records in responding to the complex needs of the financial services industry."
