A Reference Guide has been produced which details all the new functionality, complete with explanations for each new process. A test environment is also available should you wish to familiarise yourself with the new processes prior to go-live. A dedicated Collateral Management Team will support any testing undertaken. If you are interested in taking part in a familiarisation session in the test environment, please let us know.
