The licensing of IMEX is one of the elements in Natexis Banques Populaires's modernization plan to complete their trade finance services. IMEX is currently being implemented in Natexis Banques Populaires's Singapore Branch, to be followed by implementation in Hong Kong. The selection of IMEX by Natexis Banques Populaires followed a very intensive and highly professional evaluation process in which the functionality and technology of IMEX were analyzed and compared to other solutions in the market. Consideration was also given to the goods tracking functionalities of IMEX, the ability of Surecomp to provide front-end solutions and to the quality list of banks that are satisfied IMEX Trade Finance System users.
Additionally, the Natexis Banques Populaires evaluation teams were motivated by the professionalism and the capacity of adaptation shown by all members of Surecomp.
Commenting on the selection of IMEX by Natexis Banques Populaires, Matti Shem-Tov, Surecomp's President, said, "We are naturally delighted and very proud to be the preferred choice of Natexis Banques Populaires, and firmly believe that the bank's selection of Surecomp illustrates our pledge to offer the very best of trade finance solutions."
