We are already hearing positive feedback from our pilot users, with the first loan approval completed shortly after go-live,” said Tim Deane, Executive General Manager of Business Banking at ASB.

The implementation of nCino, alongside Salesforce for business origination, supports ASB’s transition from legacy systems, with ongoing functionality releases as business lending transitions from existing platforms.
