they sought a faster, more reliable solution to sync thousands of trades in seconds.

by partnering with knowledgenet, their order processing cycle became more efficient, occurring in 100-200 milliseconds and allowing 1000 trades per second.

this was possible by using tradenet database’s dependent technology layer to access the market directly from the mercury order routing channel.

in addition to this solution, a monitoring tool was provided to identify any errors during trading sessions.


credit suisse saudi’s system architecture operated on a technology, which became legacy, that limited the order flow performance cycle. this created a strain on the current operations, rising trade volumes in terms of time efficiency and maximizing their clients trading benefits.

with increasing growth in the saudi economy, the need to accelerate the current trading platform without any impact on the current customer operations in this transition was crucial.with the significant increase in customer operations, the project has to be executed in a shorter time.


knowledgenet innovated its eco-system to integrate with the existing tradenet system to ensure the risk-free transition. knowledgenet’s tradenet fastwire was built for agility and rapid sync transmission. it is proven to be the most reliable and efficient solution in the region and is compliant with local financial regulatory requirements. credit suisse saudi requirements were phased out, prioritizing the operational implementation.

How KYC2 Helped Saudi National Bank in Raising ROI and Customer Satisfaction

The Client

Saudi National Bank, the largest financial institution in Saudi Arabia, is one of the leaders of the industry in the region that was established back in 1953 and had over 500 branches. The bank contributes to some of the Kingdom's mega projects and surpasses boosting both its local and regional customer base at impressive rates.

As a leading institution, the bank plays a vital role in redefining processes and experiences. This can be achieved only through consistently pursuing the finance industry's best practices, processes and technologies. One of the bank's latest collaborations was with KnowledgeNet, implementing the effective Know Your Customer solution KYC^2.

The Challenge

Any time that can be saved is now seen as both a cost reduction opportunity and another one to enhance customer or client experience.

For Saudi National Bank, the dependency of accessing Know Your Customer data manually by the internal teams takes time, and this time counts as both a challenge to the productivity of employees and as a delay for customers, which can both be eliminated.

The Approach and Solution

What resolves this, decreasing the cost of the know your customer daily processes, is a solution that takes advantage of digital automation, and as a proven solution, kyc^2 was the solution of choice.

By implementing kyc^2, it was ensured that data was migrated securely and automatically. kyc^2's approach to data migration and storage relies on an architecture that utilizes the highest, military-grade standards of data integrity and end-to-end encryption security.

There could be no automation without reliable data. so there comes the enhancement of data accuracy. kyc^2 starts at resolving master data issues, making it free of missing information, incorrect data and formatting issues; all with the technology of the dnx data quality management platform, built on top of ibm's datastage, informatica and talend.

Using a powerful rule book and manual/semi-automatic tools, we have ensured the bank has full control over their customer data and how it can be filtered and enhanced.

Data quality is continuously monitored through the process, with powerful algorithms continuously analyzing key data quality metrics and generating useful insights. data is also stored on-premise, fully aligning with the required regulations.

After enhancing data quality, kyc^2 could be fully implemented with the existing banking system with no required changes.

Kyc^2 improves day-to-day know your customer processes by allowing employees to get faster confirmations with minimal steps, providing them with customer information in one place and alerting them with data quality issues to help sustain the speed acquired by improving data quality.

Additionally, it provides them with an automatic escalation feature to branch managers to help enhance the service for every customer and the productivity of each case.

One of the biggest aspects that were in mind during building kyc^2 from the ground up was compliance, and it is an aspect we also consider at every integration. kyc^2 complies with every banking software standard, including the top encryption and authentication security aspects.

Kyc^2's ease-of-use and clean user interface designed according to scientific methodologies also came at a favor, as employees did not need much time to integrate the new solution into their daily workflow. thanks to the inclusive dashboard and intuitive design that feels familiar at the first time of use.

The Value

Saudi National Bank has finally achieved enhanced ROI in the form of boosted, proven employee productivity. Customer experience was also essentially improved, with the KYC^2 processes formerly causing delays now becoming a seamless one.
