Duco expands global presence with Singapore office

DataEnterprise data quality reconciliation services provider, Duco, has opened new offices in Singapore to meet demand for its services and solutions in the region. Duco is used by global financial institutions “to accelerate digital transformation programmes helping to solve a range of data quality, integrity and reconciliation challenges across multiple departments,” the company said in a statement. Its aim is to make managing data less arduous. The Singapore office, which is Duco’s latest addition to its global presence, will focus on clients across the Asia Pacific region. Earlier this year the company said it would be opening offices in Wroclaw, Poland and Edinburgh, Scotland in addition to Singapore. Christian Nentwich, chief executive officer of Duco said: “The data quality and reconciliation market is moving towards self-service. To better support our customers, we see Singapore as a fantastic hub due to its strong support for fintech and innovation, and the presence of both local and global customers.” Victoria Harverson, business development director for the Asia Pacific region at Duco said: “We are focused on leveraging machine learning and self-service technology to solve long-standing data problems that have traditionally suffered from manual and legacy point solutions.” ©2018 funds global asia
