Harland Financial Solutions' CreditQuest® Credit Management System Will Allow Banks to Submit Financial Data For Use in Creating RMA's Annual Statement Studies

Philadelphia, Pa. and Lake Mary, Fla. (June 2, 2010) —The Risk Management Association (RMA) and Harland Financial Solutions have announced that CreditQuest®, Harland Financial Solutions’ credit management system, includes a submission bridge allowing banks to submit customers’ financial data for use in creating RMA’s Annual Statement Studies. The Annual Statement Studies are the industry’s single source of comparative data that comes directly from financial statements of the small and medium-size business customers of RMA’s member institutions, providing valuable information as part of their credit risk management and analysis process.

“RMA member banks and Harland Financial Solutions’ clients are the big winners in this. From a user’s perspective, the inclusion of the submission protocol will increase the utility and value of CreditQuest and will enable a bank to readily participate in their Association’s rich credit and lending tradition,” said Mark Zmiewski, director of Enterprise Risk Management at RMA.

CreditQuest provides end-to-end credit management, from origination to financial analysis, portfolio management and reporting. The solution is built with the key functions of the entire credit management process and scales to meet the specific needs of the financial institution. CreditQuest helps the financial institution streamline its credit management process and strengthen its ability to spot risk quickly and perform consistently.

“RMA has a strong reputation in the credit world and is recognized as the only source of comparative data that enables financial institutions to have the valuable information needed to perform risk analysis. We are extremely pleased to have this relationship with RMA to provide our clients the Annual Statement Study data electronically within CreditQuest,” said Kimberly Songer, director of risk solutions at Harland Financial Solutions.
