Mexican bank Banco del Bajio has started production with allNett, Surecomp’s Java J2EE corporate trade finance front-end solution.
With the implementation of allNETT, Banco del Bajio now has in place a fully comprehensive straight-through processing (STP) trade finance solution that addresses the front-to-back trade finance transaction lifecycle. The bank has been a user of Surecomp’s back-office trade finance solution IMEX for over a decade.
“From the outset, we understood that the real catalyst of change would come from technology and the ways in which we could exploit it to provide our customers with better value, comfort and service,” said Ricardo Jimenez, head of corresponding banking at Banco del Bajio. “From our first business dealings with Surecomp over a decade ago, we understood that here was a software vendor totally focused on providing a first-class trade finance solution, coupled with value-added support and encouragement to see our endeavour become a reality. Our ongoing partnership with Surecomp plays no small part in our continued growth and success.”
