CNS Treasury Software creates a simplified, digitised approach to treasury management through a fully integrated, fully functional, and affordable treasury management platform that anyone can access anywhere, anytime.
CNS Treasury was the software aspect of Tuatara Management, an investment company turned foreign exchange broking business. Initially, we ran the FX broking business on spreadsheets, word documents, and exercise books — and the best accounting package we could find.
But what we really needed was a purpose-built system. There was nothing on the open market. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention. By 1995 we had built our Deal Management System (DMS).
We then started on another product we had dubbed ‘Currency Navigation System’ (or CNS, as it later became known). The name had been born out of a sailing excursion on a yacht. I (Hils- founder) was struck by the way its state-of-the-art navigation system made it easier to negotiate our passage.
CNS Treasury was up and running. It revolutionised our FX broking business and our clients' business. It reduced our workload, increased our accuracy, and provided reporting so detailed that we could confidently guide our clients on financial and regulatory reporting.
Louis joined the team in April 2022 after spending 3 years at Bancorp Treasury (NZ's largest treasury advisor). He has been transitioning into the CEO role over the last 6 months and is primarily responsible for Sales, product management, strategy, operations, and HR.
Hils began his career on the Sydney Futures Exchange floor in 1985. This was followed by a period of working in banks and brokerage houses before starting a foreign exchange company, Tuatara Management Ltd, in 1991.In 2004, Hils formed CNS Treasury to market the software that he developed for internal use at Tuatara. He has subsequently led the team in bringing this proven, practical software to treasury and accounting departments.
Dean worked for Ernst & Young as our business consultant in our initial build of Deal Management System (DMS). He later joined Tuatara / CNS in 1996. Dean has implemented business systems for a range of businesses in New Zealand including being the Deployment Manager for all SAP at Carter Holt Harvey.
CNS is the first company to automate FX deal flow between NZ and AU banks into a treasury system, on average saving our client base 3-4 days per month.
