Bank of Ayudhya is first user of ALSCOM in Asia Pacific Region

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – ALLTEL announced today its Advanced Lending Solutions Comprehensive Origination Manager product will be licensed by Bank of Ayudhya (BAY). This advanced loan origination product will allow BAY to significantly shorten processing and approval lead times for its consumer loans offerings.

Ranked as the sixth largest bank in the Kingdom of Thailand, with an asset size of US $9.0 Billion and more than 400 branches serving more than 3.5 million customers, Bank of Ayudhya is forging ahead to strengthen its market position in consumer lending.

"As the leading player for consumer lending in Thailand, we needed to automate our loan origination processes for faster and more efficient service to our customers." said Khun Charlotte Donavanik, executive vice president for the Bank of Ayudhya. "We found ALSCOM to be both comprehensive and cost-effective. With it, our bank expects to significantly reduce our loan processing lead times while allowing us to be even more aggressive – to further increase our share of the market. We think that faster approvals will make our popular loan offerings even more attractive to our customers and the overall market."

"We are pleased that Bank of Ayudhya made the decision to acquire ALSCOM," said Jim Wilson, president of ALLTEL's Financial Services International. "After we announced this product's availability for the international market last October, Bank of Ayudhya lost no time in requesting and studying our proposal. They are our first ALSCOM client in the Asia-Pacific region. ALSCOM is a key part in our end-to-end lending strategy and the strong response we have received from other clients in the region confirms the decision made by Bank of Ayudhya."

"After being a client for more than ten years, Bank of Ayudhya knows that leveraging the integrated functions of the ALLTEL software is the key to an optimized investment with ALLTEL," said Khun Preeprame Tesprasit, executive vice president at Bank of Ayudhya. "After we decided to renew with ALLTEL two years ago, we implemented the ALS Servicing Manager to set up our consumer lending product portfolio. Our decision to acquire ALSCOM allows us to further increase loan transaction volumes while improving the customer experience with Bank of Ayudhya."
