25 Role of the Membership Department The Membership Department of the company addressee of the request for participation in the services (Borsa Italiana, CC&G, Monte Titoli) is able to accompany the BIt Club used throughout the membership procedure. The BIt Club site, in fact, is provided with a back end section, which permits the Membership Department to view the progress of the request and provide all the support that should appear necessary. The interaction between the BIt Club user and the Membership Department enables, through sequential stages, to complete the membership procedure to the services. BIt Club, moreover, permits the sharing of certain data between the Suppliers, with evident double benefits for the user: 1. the data necessary to the different companies suppliers of the services are inserted into the system only once, since the Suppliers share the information through the site 2. through the use of the tool it is possible to interact simultaneously with several Suppliers of the services necessary to the user. The system makes consistency checks of the services requested, where a strong interrelation and dependence exist among the available services. The admission to trading on certain markets cannot exclude the participation in the clearing and post-trading services.
