  • Increased efficiency by automating tasks for mortgage and factoring solutions; reduced average time to process mortgages by ~50%
  • Improved security and IT risk management resulting in ~50% decrease in security audits
  • Enhanced customer service by introducing new loan, account and mortgage products that grew business by ~20%
  • Improved profitability by reducing the cost-to-income ratios by ~15%
