New online process enables RBS’ clients to accelerate document presentation and payment

Trade Technologies, the global leader in international trade document solutions(, and The Royal Bank of Scotland N.V. announced today that RBS will use Trade Technologies’ patented Global Trade Management software to receive online presentations of trade documents from export customers.

Trade Technologies automates the process of instantly delivering original UCP 600 compliant letter of credit documents online to major global trade banks. This far more efficient process combined with Trade Technologies’ document preparation service, allows exporters to eliminate discrepancies, lower transaction costs, enhance reporting and accelerate international payments. Since its founding in 1999, Trade Technologies has completed more than 40,000 fully electronic presentations of original letter of credit documents to major trade banks and has processed over $40 billion of international trade payments.

“We are delighted that RBS will use our platform to automate the presentation of trade documentation for its impressive list of international trade customers,” said Kirk Lundburg, CEO of Trade Technologies. “We do this for over 1,000 customers on nearly $9 billion of transactions each year and they all see significant improvements using our solutions.”

“We constantly look for ways to help our clients reduce their Days Sales Outstanding (DSO), and the Trade Technologies Global Trade Management platform shortens the payment cycle,” said Deborah Seliski, Director, RBS.
