Distribution channels, brand advantage, same-day clearing and price competitiveness gave Techcombank an edge over other players  

Techcombank’s advantage over other banks are grounded in its payment services offerings. These are centred on distribution channels, competitive edge over zero pricing of internet banking services, brand advantage as well as capability to support more than 13 million transactions per day. The bank reported strong incoming and outgoing payments volumes, growing by 143% and 150%, respectively.

It provided an auto-payment services for a large manufacturing company in Vietnam

The corporate was hit by huge payment volumes leading to manual intensive processing and significant burden on operations and manual errors translating to delayed payments and negative impact on supplier relationships. The bank implemented a host-to-host payment solution to migrate 100% payment transactions (cross-border, domestic, custom) to e-channel. It also provided automatic payment reconciliation report to customers as well as updates on the status of payments. The client’s lead time for payment and operational costs decreased significantly. 

It is a sought-after provider of auto-payment services and centralised payment solutions

The FMCG client of the bank with over 100,000 transactions per year was challenged by larger turnaround time for payment processes on account of multiple signatories to a document. It provided a centralised payment solution for more than 6,500 end users as signatories to more than a thousand successful purchase orders. Redundancies arising from paper/hard copy of payment order was eliminated and 100% of their suppliers received payment through the ERP.
