Fifth Third Bank Signs with Filogix to Deliver Straight-Through-Processing for Commercial Credit

    New technology solution launched to reduce processing times and help
    mitigate risk with improved credit quality

    PLANTATION, FL, Jan. 16 /CNW/ - Filogix Limited Partnership announced
today, the latest in a series of developments that will deliver
straight-through-processing for Fifth Third Bank's Commercial Credit Division,
via their Cyence product (formerly known as ExpressOS(TM)). This latest module
facilitates standardization of the Bank's due diligence fulfillment process
for commercial credit.
    The Cyence solution delivers enhanced functionality by automating the due
diligence request workflow between various departments and employees involved
in evaluating and approving credit applications. The new tool provides the
ability to:

    -   Request due diligence for all new and renewal credit applications
    -   Facilitate data collection necessary for determining the required due
    -   Dynamically create a due diligence 'checklist' based on the data
    -   Share due diligence data and track status of due diligence requests

    "The turmoil in the financial services industry and increasing regulation
are driving demand for new risk management and innovative technology solutions
that help banks and other financial institutions deal with the increasing
risk, complexity and security requirements in today's challenging
environment," said Greg McIntosh, EVP, Cyence Business Unit.
    This latest technology module is a major step forward in the delivery of
the commercial credit straight-through-processing vision, initially launched
in 2004. At that time, Fifth Third Bank was faced with multiple divisions that
each had its own systems and processes for managing commercial accounts. Bank
employees now have a more holistic view of the customer and better access to
critical data required to make business decisions.
    "With straight-through-processing, Commercial Bank employees now have
improved access to customer information, as well as more accurate and complete
data," said Brian McMahon, VP, Senior Manager of Commercial Credit
Applications Development for Fifth Third Bank. "Redundant data entry has been
eliminated, resulting in reduced errors and improved quality. Cycle time has
been reduced significantly and we are able to deliver a more consistent and
satisfying user experience. Straight-through-processing has become crucially
important to managing and mitigating risk, a critical element of business
