170 Systems Announces 170 MarkView® Release 5.5



New Version Delivers Powerful Information for Improving Business Performance and Extends Finance Processes Directly to Business Units

BEDFORD, Mass., April 10 / -- 170 Systems Inc., the leader in optimizing financial processes for the world's largest companies, today announced 170 MarkView Financial Suite, Release 5.5, featuring 170 MarkView Insight and 170 MarkView Express. With these two significant new capabilities, Finance executives now have access to powerful information for rapidly improving Finance processes and business performance, and departmental managers have a simple way to participate directly in business processes.

170 MarkView Insight is a business performance management monitor that equips Finance managers with essential operational information including key performance indicators and situational alerts. Processes tracked and reported on include compliance and controls, discount management, and financial accounting, as well as areas requiring attention, such as unprocessed financial liabilities, workflow bottlenecks, pending penalties, employees' productivity, potential fraud, and others.

170 MarkView Express is a powerful business user portal that extends finance applications to line-of-business users, insulating them from the complexities of the back-end systems. Using a traditional web browser, business-users use can quickly and easily participate fully in financial processes. 170 MarkView Express' simple interface gives managers single-click access the data they need to make informed decisions -- ERP transactional data, process history, backup information (contracts, purchase orders, and receipts), and sophisticated analysis, such as spending against budget or bills/payments. They simply review the transaction presented them and related background information, and complete their portion of the process, without ever accessing the ERP system directly.

"We needed a quick and effective way to involve the cost center managers in the review and approval of invoices, but that solution had to offer compatibility with our users' desktop environments and little or no training," said Dorothea Lopuck, Director of Accounting Services, Juniper Networks. "With 170 MarkView Express, we have a solution that extends our AP processes out to our lines of business -- in the U.S. and international locations -- without requiring our users to be trained in the application or our IT department to support another client, and the improvements to our invoice-approval process have been significant. As a result of the implementation of 170 MarkView Express, we were able to offshore much of the global AP transaction processing to India."

"With 170 MarkView 5.5, we're giving all participants in financial transaction cycles the information they need to be more effective in managing the financial health of their organizations," said Dave Ellenberger, president and CEO of 170 Systems, Inc. "By focusing on our customers' complete business processes and the needs of all the participants, we continue to differentiate our offerings with innovative solutions that help address the most pressing challenges facing financial executives today."
