BELLIN banks on WalletSizing® by Vallstein


BELLIN GmbH, the specialist in treasury management, has formed a strategic alliance with Vallstein, the leading provider of Bank Relationship Management (BRM) solutions, to support corporate customers in optimizing their banking business in the future. tm5 users will be able to access their WalletSizing®solution directly from within the treasury management system after Patch Day 6.

“WalletSizing® with Vallstein powered by BELLIN brings complete and consistent insight, control and compliance to the banking business of corporate treasuries,” explains Martin Bellin, founder and Managing Director of BELLIN. “On this basis, companies of all sizes will be able to negotiate favorable terms and conditions with their banks,” adds Hugo van Wijk, founder and CEO of Vallstein.

The financial crisis, Euro Crisis and Basel III make the right choice of partner banks and banking products a decisive factor for the success of a company. Against this background, BRM initiatives are high on the agenda of CFOs and treasury experts. “WalletSizing® with Vallstein powered by BELLIN” gives treasurers direct access to business-critical information, such as Share of Wallet, Return on Solvency and the Vallstein Benchmark, and enables them to generate reports.

“Essentially, the question is how much profit banks make from their corporate clients or how attractive the companies are for their banks,” Bellin states. WalletSizing® helps users find the answer to this question. The methodology developed by Vallstein determines the return on equity of the banks with which the company does business. With the resulting intracompany benchmarking, treasurers can find the optimal way to distribute their business volume among the banks. “On average, our customers achieve savings of 26 percent with our WalletSizing® methodology,” adds van Wijk.

BELLIN will connect customers directly to WalletSizing® via tm5: In addition to linking to the WalletSizing® application, data that is already available in the licensed tm5 modules will be exported and transferred to the WalletSizing® ASP server. “WalletSizing® with Vallstein powered by BELLIN” will be available to tm5 customers from Patch Day 6 on 14 November 2012.

“We have found a strong partner and renowned BRM provider in Vallstein,” says Bellin. “We are pleased that we can offer a solution together that goes far beyond the usual concepts and brings transparency to the banking relationships of our corporate customers.”
