It feels like GTC is the company that finally brings the letter of credit practice into the 21st century. Their platform offers state of art features that for sure will help us reduce the DSO and the number of discrepant documents in our daily L/C operations

GTC's product has convinced us by its completeness. During installation phase and throughout the project customer service from GTC met our expectations at any time. Despite the fact that GTC is located in Canada and we are in Germany we felt that they were always next door.

“Metsäliitto Group has changed its LC workflow from paper-based handling to the electronic way of working. All the LC handling work was formerly based on papers received via fax or e-mail from the different counterparties involved, but the @GlobalTrade Export LC multibank System has given our Group the possibility of receiving LC information electronically into its system, giving it the opportunity to harmonize the workflow on a whole company level and to speed up the whole LC process.”

Kimmo Helle, VP Treasury Development and Trade Finance, Metsä Group Financial Services

" Our decision to implement @GlobalTrade as an independent platform for the administration of bank guarantees was mainly driven by the possibility of having a fully integrated electronic process for handling guarantees with different banks with a one face solution.

Thomas Stötzel, Head of Corporate Finance and Treasury of Nordex AG.
