SINGAPORE, February 18, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- SAGE and Ocean Technology have signed an agreement to market Prospero, a revolutionary financial software, in Vietnam.

Recent growth of the financial services sector in Vietnam has created a demand for new products and services-in particular, software that simplifies the banking and asset management process.

SAGE's Prospero meets that demand. The software integrates front-, middle- and back-office systems via multiple modules covering all aspects of financial operations, including asset management, risk management and administration. Modules can be implemented separately or as an integrated whole, and all interface with legacy systems.

Prospero is flexible enough to cater to the requirements of Vietnamese investors and asset managers, says Patrick Rotzetter, chief business development officer of SAGE. It will help medium to large investment firms achieve best practices in banking and asset management.

Rotzetter says Ocean Technology-a consultancy firm that has assisted in the technical transformation of a number of banking and finance firms in Vietnam-is the ideal partner in the marketing of Prospero in Vietnam. The company, which has a deep knowledge of the Vietnamese market, has already successfully delivered a number of financial solutions to clients throughout Southeast Asia. These have included core banking, mobile banking and card management/ATM switch solutions. The company boasts an impressive client roster, including Techcombank, GP Bank, Vietnam-Russia Bank, Viet A Bank, Nam A Bank, Cement Finance Company and the Foreign Trade University.

Given the recent growth of the financial services sector in Vietnam, we looked for a system that could provide a flexible yet comprehensive solution for clients seeking wealth management services, says Rick Rodgers, COO of Ocean Technology. The Prospero platform delivers a fully integrated system with both the financial planning tools and the back-office trading and accounting functions our clients require.

This agreement shows SAGE's commitment to participating in the growth the Vietnamese market, says Rotzetter. We look forward to rolling out Prospero there.
