Surecomp partners with BIDV to streamline trade finance

Toronto, Canada, 30 August 2022 – Surecomp® today announced that the Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam, commonly known as BIDV, has gone live with its DOKA-NG™ and allNETT™ solutions to fully digitize trade finance processing.

Supported by local partner, CMC Technology and Solution (CMC TS) in Vietnam, Surecomp was selected by BIDV to deliver its next generation trade finance platform as part of a broader digital transformation strategy. Trade finance and bank guarantees being one of the bank’s most important service offerings, the implementation will now enable BIDV to meet current and future demand.

Hosted on their own servers in Hanoi, the solutions were deployed and supported by Surecomp’s local teams in Asia. Through improved efficiency and faster response times, the newly digitized operation will help BIDV maintain competitive edge and deliver an enhanced customer service.  This in turn will allow customers to better manage their import and export activities. Taking a pioneering approach to digital innovation, the flexibility of the solutions will also allow the bank to amend and customize their trade finance instruments as their requirements evolve.

“Thanks to a comprehensive collaboration between BIDV, Surecomp and CMC, we are delighted to be in live production with our new digital trade finance operation. Given its high priority, we believe in the value and competitive edge this digitalization path brings BIDV,” says BIDV’s Mr. Le Trung Thanh, Senior Executive Vice President. 

“We would like to express our congratulations to BIDV on successfully deploying this new trade finance platform. CMC Technology and Solution is proud to be BIDV’s technology partner in this project, together with Surecomp delivering a best-in-class solution. We will strive to provide BIDV with industry-leading services and solutions to support them in remaining at the industry forefront,” adds Mr. Ho Thanh Tung, CEO of CMC Corporation and CMC TS.
