We always keep pace with the latest developments and trends so we can anticipate what customers need even before they are aware of it. Market conditions can change so quickly, so we champion a responsive culture; we stay open-minded and flexible and therefore always ahead of the curve.” As he looks towards the future, Martin is excited about the developments in the technology space and how these will affect his firm. “Moving forward, we predict that treasury departments as we know them today will be a thing of the past in a few years’ time. The trend clearly goes from departments towards networks. Sharing and pooling know-how are key! The business world is changing rapidly, and there’s a general trend towards distributing work and data. You can tap so much potential by combining everyone’s knowledge and skills. Our technology is built to reflect this network approach, and we anticipate and respond to these trends. We like to call this “social treasury:” treasury based on networks and modern communication channels. BELLIN is pioneering this approach.” Contact Email: [email protected] Address: Tullastr. 19, 77955 Ettenheim, Germany Phone: 0049 7822 4460-0 Website: bellin.com A European company, with unique skills and best-in-class experts, SIVECO Romania is the only Romanian software company that currently provides IT services as a prime contractor to the European Commission organizations.
