Hatton National Bank Goes Live with LeaseWave® from Odessa Technologies


Philadelphia, PA May 30, 2013 - Hatton National Bank (“HNB”) announces they have gone live with the LeaseWave technology platform from Odessa Technologies, Inc. (“Odessa”). HNB is the largest leasing provider in Sri Lanka, financing vehicles and various other types of equipment to individuals and businesses through a network of 250 branches located throughout the country.

“HNB has continued to rapidly expand its branch network. The ability to originate and service our leasing customers locally is an important part of our value proposition,” says RMP Dayawansa, Assistant General Manager - Personal Financial Services, at Hatton National Bank. “The ability to tightly integrate LeaseWave with our existing web strategy and various surround systems, including our core banking solution, enables us to significantly improve our overall efficiency and provide a seamless experience for our customers.”

"HNB now has 600+ users across 250 branches using LeaseWave in a high-touch retail leasing environment. Consolidating their diverse business onto our platform was indeed challenging. But what really made this implementation interesting for us was automating all the nuances of HNB’s business model while ensuring regulatory compliance,” says AR Vedapuri, Associate Vice President – Projects, at Odessa Technologies. “Our success at HNB is exemplary of LeaseWave’s ability to offer flexibility without compromising the robustness of its controls.”
