SAN DIEGO - Chase Manhattan Corp. this week introduced new personal computer software called Impact that lets customers make short-term investments electronically.
The software, called Impact, is designed to move money in and out money market funds or make buy-or-sell orders for securities traded by Chase Securities Inc.
It also tracks investment portfolios and rates and makes use of the Microsoft Corp. Windows operating environment. Impact was unveiled at the Treasury Management Association Conference here this week.
Chase has plans to engineer all of its PC products for accessing bank services so they work with Windows.
Also at the conference, two non-bank vendors of PC treasury management software announced new versions of their products.
ICMS International, San Bruno, Calif., said it plans in December to release a new version of its Treasury Management System that will run under Windows. XRT Inc., Wayne, Pa., announced a new version of its Treasury Workstation that runs on the competing OS/2 operating system from International Business Machines Corp.
XRT officials also said they plan to release versions of Treasury Workstation for Windows and for the Unix operating system next year.
