For many bank customers, Account Analysis is the heart of their banking relationship, but the experience can be challenging. Monthly statements are difficult to understand and lengthy — in some cases, hundreds of pages long — making them time-consuming to reconcile, involving Treasury, finance, customer service and operations teams.

Further complicating an already complex situation, IT staff with expertise in legacy Account Analysis applications are retiring from the workforce, creating business continuity and operational risks.

As a result, many U.S. banks are actively looking to replace their Account Analysis systems — in some cases, as part of a broader digital transformation strategy.
