LONDON, September 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Thunderhead, the leading provider of enterprise communications technology, today announced that it has implemented the Thunderhead Document Generation Platform at UBS Investment Bank to automate the creation of its Treasury Exotics trade confirmations.
Thunderhead was selected by UBS following a competitive tender and detailed proof-of-concept process and will support UBS' global trade confirmation requirements.
The adoption of Thunderhead has enabled UBS to implement direct business user control across the development and maintenance of trade confirmations for a large variety of products, requiring either STP or non-STP business processes. Confirmations that require manual intervention are routed through required approval processes using Thunderhead's Review Framework, which has been integrated with UBS' existing workflow application.
In addition, the Thunderhead solution provides a full audit trail to ensure complete transparency of the trade confirm process. Thunderhead's advanced personalization capabilities also allow Operations staff to produce documents with content relevant to their counterparty's language and jurisdiction requirements.
"Thunderhead has proven to be a high quality component for document generation and does exactly what we expect and demand of it," said Gerry Murphy, Executive Director - Head of OTC Operations IT at UBS.
Glen Manchester, Thunderhead's CEO, commented, "The ability to quickly and accurately manage trade confirmations is critical to the operations of an organization such as UBS. As the volume and complexity of Foreign Exchange trades increases, the benefits of implementing a proven document generation platform to handle the trade confirmations will enable UBS to retain its competitive edge while expanding its business into new markets. The ability of Thunderhead to automate the full spectrum of trade confirmations brings immediate business advantage through the reduction of the usual costs associated with manual document creation and management of exceptions."
UBS is the world's largest wealth manager, a top tier investment banking and securities firm, and one of the largest global asset managers. In Switzerland, UBS is the market leader in retail and commercial banking.
Thunderhead is the leading provider of enterprise solutions for the creation and management of multi-channel business communications.
The Thunderhead platform allows business users to manage the production of both personalized and transaction-driven communications which may be delivered by any number of media channels, including print, fax, web, email, SMS and even industry-specific XML schemas.

Thunderhead numbers some of the world's leading financial services organisations as its customers, and services its rapidly expanding customer base from offices in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
