Financial services provider streamlines internal flow of information, improves productivity with enterprise services platform

Paris — June 7, 2005 — UCABAIL, a subsidiary of Credit Agricole SA Group, specializing in lease financing, said it has deployed the webMethods Enterprise Services Platform, a component of the webMethods Fabric product suite, as part of the company's program to improve its internal business operations.

The deployment is anticipated to be a step in a program to standardize the company's integration and improve internal business optimization processes. UCABAIL said the implementation of the solution will enable it to better manage its inter-application operations within its various information systems.

The key component of webMethods Fabric that UCABAIL has deployed allows the company to centralize its business processes into a single dedicated application, to standardize the implementation models and processes, and also to drive the exchange platform via a single process. The implementation of the webMethods Enterprises Services Platform also provides for the continuity and continued quality of service and support provided by UCABAIL to their customers.

"By implementing the webMethods Enterprise Services Platform, we streamlined our processes and achieved greater control over the flow of information within our business operations and various departments," said Stephane Faijean, DSI, UCABAIL. "As a result, the company is more responsive and well positioned to offer value-added services to our customers."
