Examples of Our Support

For those who intend to start a brokerage business, we can support developing FSA registration documents, internal control rules, operations manuals, etc. Along with implementation of FLARE back office system, we can also arrange meetings with clearing agents and exchange members. We also provide assistance during the hardware and software installation required to start a new business.
In a system migration project, it is essential to revisit operational flows in order to improve operational efficiency and to reduce operational risks. We support GAP analysis between current and new systems, developing "To-Be" operational flow, developing operations manuals, user training and so on.
In a system implementation project where multiple vendors and multiple systems are mutually related, a clear project plan, continuous issue resolution and overall progress management are critical to the project's success. We can help client project managers develop project plans as well as capture early warning signs that may affect the overall project plan.
