Surecomp Earns IBM Advanced Business Partner 2009 Status

Surecomp, a leading provider of global trade solutions for the financial services community, announced today that it has achieved IBM Advanced Business Partner 2009 status. The newly earned status recognizes Surecomp’s continued commitment to excellence in the delivery of IBM solutions.

As part of its PartnerWorld program, IBM awards Advanced Business Partner status to software solution vendors that have demonstrated qualified development skills and successful implementations using IBM software and hardware technologies. This award reaffirms Surecomp’s status as a premier provider of global trade solutions.

“Early on in our corporate history, Surecomp fully realized the importance of partnering with IBM. So we naturally view achieving Advanced status as a confirmation of our close relationship with IBM,” Surecomp Chairman Joel Koschitzky told senior company managers via a global video link.

“The first quarter of 2009 was challenging, and this year, no doubt, will prove to be a watershed for many vendors. But innovation and entrepreneurial leadership will bloom out of the panic experienced over the last eight months, and this recognition from IBM proves that we are on the right path. I appreciate the support we’ve received from both customers and employees worldwide, and am confident that banks and financial institutions seeking the very best high-performance global trade solutions need to look no further than Surecomp,” Mr. Koschitzky concluded.
