Our showpiece discipline.
Successful system integration projects played a key role in the development of Firstwaters. The introduction of systems such as Calypso, Murex, Ambit Quantum, LoanIQ and Ambit Focus for clients from the finance sector has made Firstwaters one of the leading consulting companies for system integration in German-speaking Europe. We have modernised and standardised the system landscapes for many clients to date.
Modern standard software solutions offer you the opportunity to efficiently implement your business processes in line with banking-level security standards. We are familiar with all of the challenges and possible solutions for integrating a system into the client’s IT landscape, configuring it as necessary and integrating it into the processes and workflows of the client. Our consultants act as your partner for optimising your business processes through the successful integration of IT solutions – while at the same time standardising your existing system landscape. Along the way, we distinguish ourselves with – in addition to our business and technical expertise – our strict independence from vendors.
