Arnaud Picut, Managing Director APAC at FERNBACH, said, ‘For FERNBACH, this is an important step to properly address the Korean market. FERNBACH desires to offer various opportunities for the maintenance and support of its IFRS solution. Localisation is key, and KT FDS is our backbone to locally support our activity.

By maximising the transparency of the audit trail and taking advantage of the pre-defined templates provided by FERNBACH, Korean banks will significantly reduce both project risks and costs.

For KT FDS, it is an excellent opportunity to leverage its growing presence within the Korean financial sector, which is underlined by Mr Hoon Chae, Director Financial Division, KT FDS, ‘KT FDS has clearly defined IFRS as its main priorities for the next three years. We have decided to invest in IFRS domain by building a pool of resources capable to support FlexFinance®. FlexFinance® appears to us as the most comprehensive solution to cope with this complex project. Clearly our main domains of expertise are the sizing and implementation of reliable and strong IT architecture capable to support a financial software like FlexFinance®.

FlexFinance® has already been installed within our data centre, we are ready to start.’

An additional goal of FERNBACH will be the construction of an IFRS Competence Center in South Korea, where potential customers become acquainted with FlexFinance® IFRS in a showroom. The IFRS solution from FERNBACH will be installed on the computers in the Competence Centre, thus simulating ‘real’ banking applications in both the front and back offices.
