The product portfolio consisted of the Banking SaaS and CashForecast solutions, as well as their license-based predecessors.

Payment transactions and solutions regarding them have always been the core business of Analyste Oy. Until August 2018, the CashForecast solution was white-labeled from Exidio's Trezone, but soon after becoming independent, Analyste acquired Exidio in August 2018 in order to provide the full Trezone solution portfolio to its customers. With the addition of Trezone, Analyste ties together bank interfacing and streamlining of Treasury processes in organizations of all sizes and shapes.
