As a firm with a huge volume of transactions, AutoRek has freed up our time so that we can focus on the errors and breaks, rather than the usual manual tasks.Robert Sexton Head of Finance
Freetrade, a commission-free stock investment app which launched in 2018, experienced rapid growth and successfully acquired over 200,000 customers by July 2020. Due to the volume of transactions requiring processing and the time taken to perform reconciliations, Freetrade identified the need for a solution to automate excel-based processes to reduce manual processing time and mitigate errors.
Freetrade must perform daily reconciliations and are obligated to meet CASS 7 regulatory requirements. Due to the volume of transactions and time taken to perform reconciliations, they identified the need for a solution to automate excel-based processes to reduce manual processing time and mitigate errors. Freetrade’s overall objective was to free up time to allow investigation into the root cause of reoccurring breaks whilst ensuring compliance with regulatory obligations.
AutoRek implemented an external reconciliation and internal client money reconciliation with a custom prudent segregation solution to reduce the time required to perform processes and to reduce the risk of operational error. AutoRek’s Single-Sign-On was also integrated with Okta to make the user experience of logging into AutoRek consistent with Freetrade’s other internal systems.
