Our service is primarily consulting based and tailored to clients’ requirements, ranging from system integration, bespoke module specification through to implementation. In most cases, the project is managed from inception to successful delivery. Occasionally, we are drafted in to revive stalled projects. Our practice is arranged into the following core areas:
Profiling a business is usually the first step to identifying any inefficiencies or areas that would benefit from integration with industry-standard applications. This activity, along with System Evaluation, is a precursor to initiating a project.
System performance affects trading operations as it can severely degrade as trade volumes and assets grow. PMG can determine the spare processing capacity so that you don’t need to worry as your volumes increase.
Vendor selection tends to be a long process involving a parade of vendors showing the best side of their application. With your requirements and our experience, we can help navigate through the sea of software sales presentations to identify the system which best suits your business needs.
Successful projects are built on solid foundations therefore before beginning any major project we advise that clients undertake a feasibility study. PMG can assist in ascertaining the scope, budget and success criteria of a project.
Using a variety of project management methodologies (PRINCE2, Scrum), we are typically involved from the beginning of the project lifecycle managing it through to completion. Keeping the entire process transparent for stakeholders ensures that the project is delivered successfully and efficiently.
Management of applications and vendors is a time consuming exercise without specialist knowledge in the application. Let PMG use their expertise to help, which will enable you to focus on your core business.
New and exotic instruments gain popularity due to the constantly evolving nature of the finance industry. With our clarity and understanding, PMG will help you model new instruments in your existing system so that you can leave the ‘spreadsheet’ behind.
Over time, your requirements change and full system upgrades can be too expensive without yielding enough improvements. PMG can assist you in the specification and development of bespoke functionality giving you time to consider the full implications of a complete upgrade.
System integration is a specialty of PMG as we know that Straight Through Processing (STP) is a target that all clients want to achieve. We can help make the overall integration process smoother and more efficient whether you’re only thinking about, or you’ve already chosen a new system.
