Great Plains Energy Flips the On Switch for GTreasury

Lake Zurich, IL – GTreasury announced today that Great Plains Energy Incorporated, has gone live with their GTreasury platform.  With only a four month implementation, Great Plains Energy is now utilizing GTreasury to manage their cash, financial instruments, and related accounting activities.

Prior to GTreasury, Great Plains Energy was using an aging treasury management system that operated on a single standalone terminal. Their decision to migrate to a different platform stemmed from the inability to access their previous solution remotely, the previous solution’s failure to forecast, and anticipated improvements in overall usability, functionality, and reliability. Jim Gilligan, Assistant Treasurer at Great Plains Energy, stated “We needed a SaaS based solution that was user intuitive, had the capability to integrate with our ERP, and combine a wide variety of fields for our Chart of Accounts. GTreasury was one of the only vendors who were able to able to meet all of our requirements.”

The speedy implementation was a team effort. “The availability of the solutions team to help us with any questions or issues was great. They were quick to respond to our inquiries, and overall provided a seamless implementation,” Mr. Gilligan stated.

The Great Plains Energy and GTreasury partnership will shine, while continuing to illuminate their treasury activities.
