New York, January 2012. FircoSoft, the leading global provider of watch list filtering solutions, announced today that it has formed an alliance with China Systems to provide real-time filtering of trade finance transactions with a new plug-in connector to CS Eximbills and Eximbills Enterprise.

It combines a Rapid Application Development toolkit with a flexible base business model, providing support for Traditional Trade, Open Account, Supply Chain Finance, and Payments operations.
