NICE Actimize Chosen by Thailand’s Bank of Ayudhya to Manage Anti-Money Laundering Compliance with Intelligent Automation

NICE Actimize, a NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) business and the leader in Autonomous Financial Crime Management, has been chosen by Bank of Ayudhya/Krungsri, Thailand’s fifth largest financial institution, to transform its anti-money laundering compliance and case management platform. To more effectively meet the needs of its regulators and support its growing customer base, Bank of Ayudhya will implement NICE Actimize’s recently launched Suspicious Activity Monitoring (SAM9) solution, as well as Actimize ActOne, an investigation management system utilizing intelligent automation that will serve as the financial institution’s next generation alert and case management platform.

"Krungsri Group’s core philosophy is founded on good governance with a steadfast commitment to fight against money laundering and financial crime. The NICE Actimize solutions, using intelligent automation and a strong case management approach, are designed to enrich our anti-money laundering efforts and strengthen our program to counter terrorist financing activities,” said Saengchart Wanichwatphibun, Chief Compliance Officer, Bank of Ayudhya. “Since the NICE Actimize solutions go beyond the traditional rules-based controls, with the addition of machine learning and robotics to reduce false-positive alerting and to speed up investigations, we believe that they will contribute to our efforts to make our fight against financial crime more efficient and effective.”

“This important implementation for NICE Actimize in Southeast Asia demonstrates the strength and accessibility of our end-to-end offerings,” said Joe Friscia, President, NICE Actimize. “We are seeing major adoption around the globe for our AI-enabled anti-money laundering and case management solutions. When integrated, our AML and ActOne solutions provide increased accuracy and productivity, improved return on investment and a clear path to supporting regulator requirements.”

NICE Actimize's latest versions of its Suspicious Activity Monitoring (SAM) solution, which combines machine learning analytics for laser-accurate crime detection with robotic process automation, virtually eliminates costly manual data gathering tasks thereby increasing team productivity and reducing investigation time for a single alert by up to 70 percent. The new Suspicious Activity Monitoring solution introduces NICE Actimize's innovative concept of Autonomous Financial Crime Management to the anti-money laundering category for the first time.
