Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB) announced the signing of an agreement with Abu Dhabi General Services, known as Musanada to implement the Bank's Host-to-Host Cash Management Solution as part of ADCB's Government Banking (REYADAH) initiative.
Both ADCB and Musanada's Chief Executive Officers were present at today's celebration ceremony held at ADCB head offices in Abu Dhabi.
As part of its commitment to provide the best solutions to its clients, ADCB has invested in state of the art Cash Management products and services such as the Host-to-Host Solution as a platform to cater to all of Musanada's cash management activities.

With this solution, Musanada would be able to streamline its transaction processing and reconciliation activities using an ERP server link-up between ADCB and Musanada's systems and should benefit significantly in terms of efficiency as a result. Host-to-Host implementations are typically quite complex integration exercises, but it is a tribute to the excellent teamwork and leadership between Musanada and ADCB that this implementation was done in record time."
Recently, ADCB has launched its latest cash management platform - ProCash- and it has been extremely well received in the market with over 2,700 clients already actively using the service since its launch late last year.
Musanada is an integral component of the Emirate's vision of becoming one of the top governments in the world and contributes directly to the goal of "World Class shared services to the Abu Dhabi Government".
