For Takeda, ELCY has provided an easily scalable state of the art solution for managing our guarantees globally. By making the switch from the traditional paper-based methods offered by banks, as well as a range of different in-house banking tools, to ELCY, it has allowed us to benefit significantly in the speed at which guarantees can be requested and issued. This is of particular importance in the pharmaceutical sector where tenders can be very short notice and the timely delivery of medical products is critical. Through the use of ELCY we have been able to manage several global facilities all on the ELCY platform and provide clear information for our reporting purposes.

Daily communication is more efficient and streamlined with the aid of ELCY. Audit trails, alert e-mails and an easy but clear creation tool for L/Cs have helped maximise our trade finance performance since adopting ELCY.

During this time we have seen a vast number of new features and upgrades that continue to improve this effective trade finance tool.

Bunge started to be an active user of the ELCY platform beginning 2015. Since then we have used both the letters of credit and the collections modules very intensively, constantly at our complete satisfaction. Having a flexible and user-friendly tool at our disposal has been a key element for Bunge in order to communicate with our pool of banks and manage our volumes of banking instruments. In this regard the support given by the ELCY teams on a day-to-day basis and their ability to customize their product and bring new functionalities has always been considered as extremely valuable.
