London, UK – December 2023 – Whistlebrook Limited, a leading provider of back-office solutions for the financial services industry, is pleased to announce that Darlington Building Society has chosen to implement an additional Whistlebrook product.

The Society already uses Whistlebrook’s Financial Ledgers, Treasury Management, Effective Interest Rates, Hedge Accounting, Asset and Liability Management, and Financial Planning products.

Having evaluated Whistlebrook’s Regulatory Reporting product (WIRES) the Society has now decided to add this to its integrated group of Whistlebrook products, which all run on the Society’s Cloud platform.

Whistlebrook harnesses the power of its single shared integrated database to provide a “single version of the truth”, in that the same data is used to drive all our products. This ensures that are no differences between the output from different Whistlebrook products due to differing source data or inconsistent calculations. This “single version of the truth” enables financial institutions to manage intricate risks calculations, meet time sensitive requirements, achieve ratio objectives, and derive business insights accurately and efficiently in a consistent manner.

Andrew Craddock, Darlington Building Society’s Chief Executive Officer said “We are pleased with our experience of working with Whistlebrook over many years. Having now reviewed our Regulatory Reporting requirements we had no hesitation in extending our partnership by adding this additional Whistlebrook product. The Society’s digital transformation, supported by this integrated set of Whistlebrook products, will provide even greater functionality, efficiency, and accuracy for the Society.”

David Webber, Whistlebrook’s Chief Executive Officer added: “We are delighted that Darlington Building Society has chosen to implement this additional Whistlebrook product, to take further advantage of our single shared integrated database. Darlington Building Society and Whistlebrook have always worked well together and we are pleased that the Society will realise the benefits of extending their use of the Whistlebrook product set. We look forward to working with the Society to support its vision and growth journey by now successfully implementing the WIRES Regulatory Reporting product.”
