DUBAI, June 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- National Bank of Ras Al Khaimah (RAKBANK) and Newgen Software were announced the winners of The Asian Banker Middle East and Africa Awards Programme 2019 for the Best Branch Digitisation Initiative in the Middle East. The bank engaged Newgen Software to design and deploy an automated workflow, which could perform 200 different services as a single unified process as well as provide instant communication to the customers through various channels.
The Bank leveraged Newgen's Business Process Management (BPM) based intelligent workflow automation solution to get rid of the paper-based manual and cumbersome processing, tracking and closure of 200 different service requests pertaining to accounts, credit cards, loans and trade services. As the process was paper based and front-end staff weren't able to manually provide immediate feedback and insights to the customers and impacted their efficiency and productivity. The solution helped RAKBANK to significantly reduce turnaround time, increase transparency and automate customer communication.
Geoff Stecyk, Chief Operating Officer at RAKBANK, said, "We are delighted to win the title of 'Best Process Automation Initiative Awards, 2019' from The Asian Banker. At RAKBANK, we consider digital solutions that deliver unique and innovative technologies as paramount in helping us achieve our commitment to service excellence by offering holistic digital experiences. With the recent implementation of the BPM, we have enhanced the experience of our customers by enabling the front office to provide customized services and streamlining back office operations."
"This award is a testament to RAKBANK's continuous efforts to innovate and provide high-quality service to its customers and we would like to extend our gratitude to Newgen Software for helping us achieve this milestone," he added.
"Newgen strives to be the technology partner of choice for growth-focused businesses globally by providing clients with the right set of technological offerings and facilitate their digital transformation journey. Receiving this award reinforces our continued commitment towards ensuring our clients have the best technology," said Diwakar Nigam, Chairman and Managing Director, Newgen Software.
