The bank’s combination of technology and diversified product suite drove strong transaction growth and financial performance

BIDV’s cash management and transaction business registered significant uptick transactions with its estimated market share for cash management reaching 40% in 2019. Transaction banking revenue increased by 50%. It was driven by focus on technology and diversification of product suite across multi-channel disbursement and collection/ bill payment services, virtual account solution, and flexible sweeping service. With over 900 transaction network points nationwide, the bank’s smart banking application segment saw over 500 thousand transactions per day. The bank’s corporate business growth story has centred on upgrading infrastructure to support larger transaction volumes.

It pushed business internet banking solutions to migrate corporates to e-channels 

BIDV’s offerings were geared towards business internet banking in an otherwise heavy cash economy of Vietnam. The bank strengthened the function of payments that allows customers to get e-messages of the receivables from every debtor right after the bank debits the account. It delivered a holistic cash management system including collections, payments, accounting management of both customers and their partners through focusing on entire supply chain. 

It has a strong focus on multi-banking and multi-channel disbursement 

The bank rolled out e-banking for large corporates to create links with customer's internal financial system, multi-channel disbursement and collection/bill payment with round-the-clock support and virtual accounts solution to support and manage receipt of funds from multiple unspecified clients. The focus on multi-banking has been immense as its platform connects with more than 30 banks and large financial institutions to carry out money transfer, and internal capital transfers. As an intra-bank payment service provider for State Bank of Vietnam, its payment gateway solutions are widely used for electricity bill, water bill, top-up, shopping online, e-wallets, and many more.
