NEW YORK, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
NICE Actimize, a NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) business and the largest and broadest provider of a single financial crime, risk and compliance software platform for the financial services industry, announced today that the Actimize Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Suspicious Activity Monitoring and Watch List Filtering solutions were selected by Indonesia's leading commercial bank, PT Bank Central Asia Tbk (BCA), to provide transaction monitoring and client screening functionality for its more than 950 branch offices. Regulatory pressures, combined with the fact that the bank was using a previously installed transaction monitoring system that did not cover the full range of the bank's product offerings, resulted in the bank's creation of a new anti-money laundering strategy and the adoption of these key components of Actimize's Anti-Money Laundering (AML) suite. Upon completion, the software system is expected to monitor 12 million accounts throughout Indonesia.
NICE Actimize's AML solutions were chosen by the bank, with support by IT solutions provider Q2 Technologies (subsidiary of Anabatic Technologies), to fulfill business needs that included flexibility, a consolidated view of alerts, and real-time transaction and customer screening. BCA will leverage NICE Actimize's anti-money laundering platform and solutions to address a variety of regulatory requirements with a single enterprise-wide solution for multiple business units and regulatory jurisdictions.
"At BCA, we worked closely with NICE Actimize and Q2 Technologies to develop an effective and rapid deployment strategy for integrating Actimize solutions with our existing applications. The main objectives are to fully comply with regulatory requirements and to move from a manual to a fully updated real-time monitoring capability," said Endra Halim, Group Head Core Application Management, BCA. "It is important for our bank to be seen as an early adopter of an automated system in our region, and we feel this strong direction will give us a competitive advantage in the marketplace."
The Actimize Suspicious Activity Monitoring solution will provide the bank with end-to-end coverage to identify and report suspicious transactions related to money laundering and terrorist financing. NICE Actimize's Watch List Filtering solution will provide enterprise-wide, multi-jurisdictional, and multi-business unit coverage for screening customers and transactions against sanction, PEP, and internal lists.
The solution's unique 4th-generation analytics offer effective multi-cultural name filtering, including unique support for Asian languages, intelligent risk-based scoring, and real-time interdiction for potential sanctions. All of NICE Actimize's AML solutions are built on an integrated core risk platform, with data sharing across solutions, providing rapid deployment and lower total cost of ownership.
"Our global experience, which includes significant familiarity with the requirements of the APAC region, in helping financial institutions develop and execute enterprise-wide anti-money laundering programs allows clients, like BCA, to develop market-leading strategies that address changing regulatory and technical requirements," said Amir Orad, President and CEO of NICE Actimize. "The breadth and flexibility of our technology, including specialized 4th-generation analytics, when combined with the benefits of our enterprisewide platform, meet the demands of a multi-cultural environment and will support BCA's rollout of new products and entry to new markets."
"We are pleased to have been selected by BCA to implement the Actimize Suspicious Activity Monitoring and Watch List Filtering solutions," said Sumarto Santosa, Director of Q2 Technologies. "We believe that the solution we are implementing will enable the bank to establish an effective transaction monitoring and customer screening strategy that will allow them to continuously adapt to changing business requirements and remain ahead of the competition."
