BOSTON, June 2 /PRNewswire/ --

- Project supports outsourced servicing of institutional business to BNY Mellon Asset Servicing

Eagle Investment Systems LLC, a leading provider of financial services technology and a subsidiary of The Bank of New York Mellon, announced today that its data management and mutual fund performance solutions are now in operation at Eaton Vance after a seven-month project implementation. The project, managed by Eaton Vance, involved automating and centralizing data and transitioning from Eagle's hosted mutual fund performance solution to its installed version.

Eaton Vance selected Eagle's data management solution to improve operational efficiency and data quality. Eagle's solution helped Eaton Vance consolidate its view of assets from multiple custodians, centralize its security reference data, and distribute the data to other middle- and back-office systems. The automation of data also directly supported Eaton Vance's decision to outsource the servicing of its institutional business to BNY Mellon Asset Servicing, which provides back-office, custody, accounting, and performance services for institutional separate accounts and non-registered funds.

"We chose Eagle's solution to build our investment systems data warehouse knowing we had a short timeframe to complete a complex system integration project. Having previously worked with Eagle, we understood the flexibility of its solutions and knew what needed to be done to meet our tight deadline and multiple requirements," said John Shea, vice president and chief information officer of Eaton Vance. "In collaborating with Eagle, and applying its best practices, we continue to centralize, automate, and publish our data to internal and external systems quickly and efficiently."

In 2006, Eaton Vance wanted to migrate to a new system quickly and efficiently, and the firm selected mutual fund performance via Eagle's ASP service, Eagle ACCESS, as an interim solution. In doing so, Eaton Vance was quickly provided access to new performance functionality and increased user flexibility.

"Eaton Vance's selection of Eagle reinforces our leadership position in the data management arena," said John Lehner, president of Eagle. "More and more, we see clients signing with us for smaller-scale projects, which eventually leads to the selection of additional solutions as their business needs change. We look forward to growing our relationship with Eaton Vance as its business needs continue to evolve."
