BlueStylus Statement Management System - A Win-Win-Win for Banks, Trustees and the UST

The BlueStylus Bank Statement Management System, announced earlier this year, represented an all-around win for stakeholders in the trustee case management business. First publicly announced at the NABT Spring conference in Charleston, South Carolina, the system’s goals received all-around accolades.

The UST reached out to software vendors in hopes of gaining traction for an idea to provide online bank statements. Rather than requiring trustees to send paper statements with final reports, the banks would provide archival services for historical bank statements to be accessed by trustee reviewers when the time came for final report review. The system would satisfy the following goals:

• Enhanced security.
• Rapid turnaround.
• Cost savings.
• Ease of use.
