BTM Tops Agenda for New and Existing Customers

Morgan Stanley expanded its use of CoreFirst in monitoring the performance of its trading transactions in real time and to significantly improve service levels for trading clients. Both customers noted that OpTier’s CoreFirst is the most advanced product of its kind and uniquely offers real automated end-to-end visibility of business transactions.

For example, IDC published a Private Vendor Watchlist Profile that named OpTier as a “company to watch.” The report credits OpTier with the development of BTM, stating, “the company was a pioneer in the emerging Business Transaction Management (BTM) market.” The report continues, “To a large extent, OpTier has successfully gained a first mover advantage in the BTM space. The company’s products provide an essential component in a fast growth play that establishes OpTier as a leader in a new fast-growth category.”
