CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A method for automating foreign exchange workflow using a network, the network supporting communication among a first computer system, a second computer system, and a third computer system, the method comprising:
receiving a plurality of tasks on the first computer system from the second
computer system, each task in the plurality of tasks corresponding to a
foreign exchange need, the plurality of tasks generated from a list of
transactions by one or more entities in response to a first single action, the plurality of tasks associated with settlement information;
providing a user interface for task presentation of the plurality of tasks using the first computer system;
providing a user interface for multi-bid foreign exchange execution of tasks as foreign exchange transactions using the first computer system; and
sending a plurality of trade confirmations to the third computer system using the first computer system, each of the plurality of transaction
confirmations corresponding to information about a foreign exchange
transaction and including settlement instructions, the plurality of trade
confirmations generated in response to a second single action.

2. The method of claim 1, wherein the first single action comprises an automatic execution of a program on the second computer system.

3. The method of claim 1 , wherein the first single action comprises a mouse click on a button on the first computer system that triggers transmission of the plurality of tasks from the second computer for the receiving.

4. The method of claim 1, wherein the first single action comprises an automatic execution of a program on the first computer system.

5. The method of claim 1 , wherein the first single action comprises a mouse click on a button on the user interface for task presentation.

6. The method of claim 1 , wherein the second computer system comprises an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.

7. The method of claim 1, wherein the first computer system comprises client server architecture having a client computer system and a server computer system, the client computer system using a web browser program and coupled in communication with the server computer system over the network.

8. The method of claim 1, wherein the third computer system comprises a settlement program.

9. The method of claim 1 , wherein the third computer system comprises an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.

10. The method of claim 1 , wherein the third computer system comprises the second computer system.

11. The method of claim 1 , wherein the network comprises a packet switched network supporting both guaranteed quality of server (QoS) and non-guaranteed QoS connections between the first computer system, second computer system, and third computer system.

12. An apparatus for automating foreign exchange workflow using a network, the network supporting communication among the apparatus, a second computer system, and a third computer system, the apparatus comprising:
means for receiving a plurality of tasks on the apparatus from the second
computer system, each task in the plurality of tasks corresponding to a
foreign exchange need, the plurality of tasks generated from a list of transactions by one or more entities in response to a first single action, the plurality of tasks associated with settlement information;
means for providing a user interface for task presentation of the plurality of
tasks;
means for providing a user interface for multi-bid foreign exchange execution of tasks as foreign exchange transactions; and
means for sending a plurality of trade confirmations to the third computer
system using the first computer system, each of the plurality of transaction confirmations corresponding to information about a foreign exchange
transaction and including settlement instructions, the plurality of trade
confirmations generated in response to a second single action.

13. A computer data signal embodied in a carrier wave comprising:
a computer program for foreign exchange execution:
a first set of instructions for generating a plurality of tasks corresponding to a foreign exchange need, the plurality of tasks generated from a list of transactions by one or more entities in response to a first-single
action, the plurality of tasks associated with settlement information; a second set of instructions for providing a user interface for task
presentation of the plurality of tasks;
a third set of instructions for supporting multi-bid foreign exchange
execution of tasks as foreign exchange transactions; and
a fourth set of instructions for transmitting a plurality of trade
confirmations in response to a second single action, each of the
plurality of trade confirmations corresponding to information about a foreign exchange transaction and including settlement instructions.

14. The computer data signal of claim 13, wherein the first set of instructions accesses an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to identify foreign exchange needs.

15. The computer data signal of claim 13, wherein the first set of instructions receives a list of foreign exchange needs from an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system over a network.

16. The computer data signal of claim 13, wherein the second set of instructions and the third set of instructions provide a graphical user interface using at least one or more of extensible markup language (XML), JAVASCRIPT(TM), and JAVA(TM).

17. The computer data signal of claim 13, wherein the computer program implemented using a client-server architecture with at least a portion of the instructions in the sets of instructions operating on a first computer system and at least a second portion of the instructions in the sets of instructions operating on a second computer system.

18. The computer data signal of claim 13, wherein the computer program further comprises a fifth set of instractions allowing a third party to monitor the multi-bid foreign exchange execution.
