Kuala Lumpur, 30 April 2018 – Alliance Bank Malaysia Berhad (“Alliance Bank”) received multiple recognition and awards for its innovative products and solutions from prestigious industry awards organised by Retail Banker International (RBI), International Data Centre (IDC), and The Asian Banker.

Alliance Bank’s first-in-market mobile foreign remittance service, Alliance Cash2Home, was Highly Commended for its “Excellence in Mobile Banking-Customisation” and “Best Multi-Channel Offering” at the RBI Trailblazer Awards 2018 last month. Alliance Cash2Home was also recognised as Malaysia’s “Digital Transformation Leader - Omni-Experience Innovation” at the IDC Digital Transformation (DX) Awards 2017 in October 2017.

The Alliance Cash2Home offers value-added propositions to both Business Owners and their foreign employees by bridging the gap in the banking needs of the underserved foreign workers and eliminating their employers’ security risks. It utilises groundbreaking facial recognition biometrics and optical character recognition (OCR) technology for a paperless account opening process, and seamless remittance services via the mobile phone.

Meanwhile, the Bank’s award-winning enterprise banking platform, Alliance BizSmart Solution, continues to receive accolades from regional and international audiences. Two weeks ago, Alliance BizSmart Solution was recognised as “Best Digital Sales Initiative, Application or Programme” at the prestigious Asian Banker’s International Excellence in Retail Financial Services Awards 2018.
