“As a leader in SME banking, DBS Hong Kong fully understands the needs of SME customers, particularly during the current challenging environment. With many small business owners spending countless hours manually importing and reconciling their bank statements every month, we believe our pioneering partnership with Financio helps equip our SME customers with true efficiency and productivity gains, so that they can focus on growing their business,” Alex Cheung, Managing Director and Head of Institutional Banking Group, at DBS Hong Kong, said.
“We are excited to extend our regional partnership to include DBS Hong Kong. With over 100,000 customers already in Hong Kong, we understand the challenges SMEs face. Limited access to capital, workforce shortages, the pressure to sustain and grow both domestically and globally are all part of the daily struggle. Now more than ever, SMEs are looking for local, cost-effective solutions to streamline business processes and ensure good cashflow visibility. Our strategic partnership delivers an unabridged offering that will enable SMEs to save time and money - resulting in greater business prosperity,” Rhys Brown, CEO at Financio, said.
