Toronto, Canada – May 17th, 2004: Portfolio+ Inc. announces that Peoples Trust has now gone live with the Portfolio Plus Platform.
"Particular mention needs to be made of the approach to this conversion taken by the joint Peoples Trust and the Portfolio+ team says G. Robert Leeming, president of Portfolio+ Inc. The stability and state of conversion data was of major concern. The way the joint team sought innovative solutions to overcome this as well as the limited enthusiasm of the data supplier must be noted and the joint team congratulated for their efforts. True diligence was shown in the proving of the conversion through the "model office" process. On their becoming a member of the growing number of Portfolio Plus users, making Portfolio+ Inc. the lead independent banking system supplier in the country, we would like to thank and congratulate Peoples Trust.”
"Because the two systems were structured differently, careful set up, extensive training and quality assurance testing had to take place in order to have confidence in the migration, particularly when adopting a system that offers better functionality, flexibility and support." says Derek Peddlesden, Executive Vice President Operations and Chief Financial Officer for Peoples Trust. "Our staff, in conjunction with Portfolio+ Inc., organized conversion testing activities, training programs, meticulous quality assurance and functionality verification which, as always, are the keys to making any transition a success. I believe this was the right move for Peoples Trust and look forward to taking advantage of the additional functionality of Portfolio Plus in order to deliver the best service possible to our customers and expand the products and services we provide."
