Canada’s Largest Credit Union Selects HCL to Automate Enterprise-wide Loan Origination & Processing
CapitalStream Expansion into Retail Lending Provides Vancity a Single Straight Through Processing Solution to Increase Efficiency & Member Experience
Sunnyvale, CA, August 17th, 2011 – HCL Technologies, a leading global IT services provider, announced that Vancouver City Savings Credit Union (www.vancity.com) has expanded the scope of the CapitalStream™ “Straight Through Processing” (STP) solution (www.hcltech.com/capitalstream) to be their enterprise-wide lending platform.
Through this engagement Vancity is expanding its relationship with HCL that began seven years ago when CapitalStream was selected to manage all lines of business lending (small, medium and large businesses). The solution is now being extended for use at Vancity’s 59 retail banking locations thus providing a single solution to manage all of the credit union’s lending operations.
CapitalStream is HCL’s integrated software platform enabling commercial banks and finance companies to implement Straight Through Processing across lending and leasing portfolios. CapitalStream has revolutionized lending by integrating and automating sales, origination, credit, decisioning, documentation, funding, booking and account monitoring.
“One of the key drivers of the retail project is to have a single enterprise platform so our retail and business loans can be originated and processed on the same system,” commented Helen Tsatouhas, Director Customer Relationship & Lending Solutions for Vancity. “Having a single system gives us a comprehensive view of our member relationships. A deeper understanding of their needs helps us provide a better experience for our members. We can now see the whole relationship we have with the borrower, regardless of the type of products purchased”.
“CapitalStream is a successful and proven application within our organization today,” stated Garry Smith, Vice President Operations for Vancity. “We are confident that extending CapitalStream to our retail business and making it our enterprise lending platform will benefit our operational analysis and help to identify places for future growth.”
“Vancity is one of many financial organizations we see moving to a single ‘Straight Through Processing’ platform for enterprise-wide lending. This trend empowers organizations to manage numerous products, functions and lines of business in one system to eliminate redundant processes and inefficient operations,” comments Mike Pennell, Vice President, HCL CapitalStream Lending Group.
CapitalStream is a core component of HCL FinanceSolution™, a suite of software platforms, best practice methodologies and business transformation services specifically designed for lending and leasing including specialized configurations of enterprise solutions for CRM, content management, business intelligence and more.
